It was revealed last year at the start of “Dexter” season 7 that there would only be one more season left and that season 7 and 8 would be a major defining and ending story arc. Today, Showtime has officially announced that season 8 would indeed be the last and have released a teaser trailer for the finale season.
The exclusive teaser from the show’s eighth and final season premiere gives fans a sneak peek into the mindset of Dexter and Debra Morgan after LaGuerta’s death in season seven.
“‘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,” said David Nevins, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc. “We’d like to thank Michael, Jennifer, and ‘Dexter’s’ indomitable cast, executive producers, writers and crew for eight incredible seasons.”
“Dexter” has remained incredibly popular since its first season premiered in 2006. The show was the recipient of the prestigious Peabody Award, as well as 25 Emmy® and 10 Golden Globe® Award nominations, and was twice named one of AFI’s top ten television series.
“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,” said Matthew C. Blank, Chairman and CEO, Showtime Networks Inc. “‘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.”
Season 8 of the Showtime hit series, “Dexter” will premiere on Sunday June 30th. You can watch the teaser trailer below:
