After quite a bit of speculation, Showtime has finally confirmed the last season of Dexter. The show will end with the upcoming season eight, as rumoured.
Even though everyone kind of knew it already, we have official confirmation.
Season eight of Showtime’s hit television series Dexter will be the show’s last. The network made the announcement on Thursday via its Facebook page.
“‘Dexter’ is a landmark franchise for our network, and we cannot wait to unveil the conclusion of this series, as we know it, to the millions of passionate fans who have supported the show season after season,” stated David Nevins, president of entertainment at Showtime Networks Inc. “We’d like to thank Michael, Jennifer, and ‘Dexter’s’ indomitable cast, executive producers, writers and crew for eight incredible seasons.”

Chairman and CEO of Showtime, Matthew C. Blank, stated, “When it debuted in 2006, ‘Dexter’ redefined the genre, by taking the anti-hero to new heights and pushing the boundaries of the television landscape.”
Blank added, “‘Dexter’ paved the way for the next generation of award-winning hit Showtime series, and its cultural impact will be felt for years to come.”

Of course, almost every single member of the cast confirmed the news a while back, including the lead of the show, Michael C. Hall. But it’s nice to have an official statement, right?
Alas, it is time to say goodbye to the secret serial killer/police officer Dexter Morgan. The final season premieres on June 30.
What do you think? Sad to see the series end?
