Okay guys, for real this time. This upcoming season of Showtime's Dexter will be its last. Probably. According to E! Online, CBS President and CEO Les Moonves broke the news to investors at Deutsche Bank's 2013 dbAccess Media, Internet, & Telecom Conference, where all important TV announcements happen these days. (CBS owns Showtime.)
We'd already prepared ourselves for Season 8 to be Dexter's last thanks to scoops and scoops and scoops full of unconfirmed rumors, but when Moonves says it will be so, it will be so. Dexter is moving to summer (June 30) for its final season instead of going with its usual late-September start, and will help usher in its replacement, the Liev Schreiber-starring Ray Donovan.
