Stop me if you've heard this before, but this is the final season of Showtime's
No seriously! The upcoming season, Dexter's eighth, will honestly, no joke, 100-percent absolutely positively be the series' last. The cable network announced the decision today, touting the show's longevity and draw (its audience has climbed every season) while breaking the good-or-bad-depending-on-how-you-look-at-it news. The surprise factor here is minimal, as everyone and their mom's mom had been speculating that Dexter would be coming to a close this season, because series star Michael C. Hall's contract is up at the end of it. Even CBS CEO Les Moonves recently blurted out that Season 8 would be it for Dexter.
The news of Dexter's end comes with a new video peek at Season 8. Take a look at this scene from the season premiere that I call "Deb goes f**king shopping!" NSFW language, obviously, because Jennifer Carpenter is in it:
I counted Deb saying naughty words in 10 of the 14 blocks of dialogue she had in that scene. Someone call the PTC!
The final season of Dexter premieres June 30 on Showtime.
