Dexter: Series Ending; No Season Nine

Dexter TV show endingThe killing spree of Dexter Morgan is finally coming to an end. Showtime’s Dexter TV series will end with the conclusion of the show’s upcoming eighth season.

While speaking with Wall Street analysts on a conference call, CBS Corp. CEO Les Moonves confirmed that this season of Dexter will indeed be the show’s last.

There’s been speculation about Dexter ending for awhile but this is the first time that the news has been confirmed.

Though the cost to produce Dexter has risen over the years, Showtime is no doubt sorry to see it go. It’s easily the cable channel’s highest-rated scripted series. First run episodes of season seven averaged 2.23 million viewers.

The eighth season of Dexter will premiere on June 30th and Showtime has ordered 12 episodes once again. The series finale is expected to air on September 22nd.

What do you think? Are you sad that Dexter is ending or do you think the time is right? Or, has the series stayed on too long already?

    The Series Cannot end on a Cliff Hanger- Dexter escapes all alone and working in a Lumber mill and without his Son who was left with Hannah. This was a Horrible ending to such a great Series. This needs to end with a definite ending him being caught the operative ending or being cured and living with his son and Hannah would have been even better. This show needs an actually ending not a speculation of what might com…. Redo the final episode right or preferably keep on going with the Series…

      I think the reason they ended the show was that Michael C. Hall wanted to stop doing TV and move to theatre. Showtime would not have ended it if Michael said so.

    Farewell Dexter ( MCH ) wish it didn’t have to end. I hope it isn’t because of your sickness, If so we all understand. It is all over money I would assume considering it is the biggest show on television. Never the less it is sad to see the show end, I wish you and your wife the best.
