Dexter Ending Soon?

News Pop Culture News

Showtime have confirmed that it’s eighth season will be the end of popular serial killer drama Dexter. With the series currently sitting in it’s sixth season, Showtime have made it clear that the finale of this season will shape things up for the series heading towards it’s conclusion in two seasons time.

So it’s become quite clear that the season will end with Deb accepting Quinn’s marriage proposal! Just kidding, but something big is planned for the finale, something so big that it will set things up for the downward spiral to the final season.

There you have it Dexter fans, the series will end with season eight. What do you think of this news? Will Batista and Quinn’s bromance blossom into forbidden love? Will LaGuerta get food poisoning? Will Harrison kill the neighbour’s cat? Let us know you theories in the shoutbox and comment section.

  1. All I can say is… Good. S6 with the exception of possibly, 10minutes worth of footage as been a bore. And 5 wasn’t any better, if not worse.

  2. Too true.

  3. Season 5 wasn’t great, but I’m loving this season. Religion is a fascinating subject to explore with serial killer characters, as Dexter is drawn towards and then rejects the light.
    And the parallels between Dexter and Travis are very interesting: their inner voice father figures, their unaware sisters, etc. And the tension is ramping up rapidly.

    My predictions for the end of the season?

    Well-established characters might be killed, if “Wormwood” goes through.
    There’s something suss about Vince’s intern. His obsession with Dexter is a little unhealthy, I reckon he’ll play a big part.
    Maybe as Batista’s sister is babysitting Harrison, she’ll bring Batista’s attention to how often Dexter is out at night. He might find out what’s going on.
    Or, since Deb is beginning to realize how much Dexter means to her as a safe place, maybe she’ll find out about him?

    Either way, I’m aching for the last two episodes, and the direction the next couple seasons might go will be very interesting.

  4. True, the religious elements are particularly interesting! And that intern, something isn’t right about him! The next two seasons may be interesting, bringing some high tension regarding Dexter getting caught. The end of the last episode I watched was rather good, so you’re right maybe the next two episodes will be pretty interesting.

  5. Looks like Dexter may take an arrow in the knee…

  6. If Dexter goes down because of an Arrow to the Knee, hes more of sissy than you are.

  7. I’ve been playing “catch up” the past week with Dexter. I managed to get all of season 3 finished in a few days, now I’m working on season 4.
    I got really really behind on them. :/ 
    But I do really like the show and while I’ll be sad to see it end, 8 seasons is a great run for a show like this. 😀
