Sensing that Showtime’s recent renewal of Dexter for two more seasons had prompted a collective, balloon-slowly-deflating sigh from fans, network president David Nevins immediately turned around and let everyone know that those seasons would “likely” be the end, is that satisfactory, whiners? Though, as is always the case with Showtime series, a show will start to think about maybe wrapping things up and saying goodbye, and then Showtime will start crying and threatening to kill itself, and that’s how Weeds is still on the air. But today Nevins offered an even more defensive, slightly more definitive statement on Dexter’s end, telling Entertainment Weekly that not only is the entire creative team currently operating under the assumption that the show will wrap up by season eight, “There’s things that are going to happen [this season] that will set up a very clear endgame that will take two seasons to tell.”
Of course, he once again gives himself an out, saying, “Things could take a turn creatively where they come to us and say they need more time.” But meanwhile, he urges even those who may have already grown bored watching Colin Hanks talk about God nevertheless to not miss the final two episodes of the year, as those will set into motion the events that the entire series has been leading toward. So everyone be sure to tune in, because it sounds like Deb is finally gonna accept Quinn’s marriage proposal.
