Q&A: Showtime's 'Dexter' to start new season June 30

RECOMMENDED READING


'Dexter' is on cusp of last season

If I remember correctly, Dexter was going to have one more season, the eighth, and that would be the last season. Is this so?

While it took some time to make it official, the Showtime series starring Michael C. Hall has said "the end begins" when the eighth season premieres on June 30.

According to Showtime, "Season eight begins six months after LaGuerta's murder — and Dexter is still managing life as a dad, brother, and serial killer. As Deb (series star Jennifer Carpenter) struggles to deal with the consequences of her actions, a mysterious woman comes to work with Miami Metro, offering firsthand information on Dexter's past." That woman, a neuropsychiatrist with special insights into serial killers, is played by Charlotte Rampling. You can find a trailer and a scene from the season premiere at www.sho.com, and it looks like a grim concluding ride.
