I'm sure at first glance, some may think this is a bit early- but there's only actually two and a half months left till Season 8 debuts!! 11 weeks this Sunday, to be precise, on Sunday June 30th...

A teaser for the new season has been released: http://www.spoilertv.com/2013/04/dex...re-teaser.html

No footage/spoilers, just a brief monologue from Dex

Another teaser from a couple of months back, which I apparently missed: http://www.spoilertv.com/2013/03/dex...ute-promo.html

Again, no footage or spoilers.

Spoiler-wise, got some known episode titles here:

LOTS of casting news here:

Usual rules apply, once it has aired it is fair game for open discussion! After air time, do NOT enter this thread if you don't want to be spoiled about the newest episode!

Really looking forward to it. How dark will Deb go?

I did 4, 5 and 7 (someone very rudely did 6 before me ) and was determined to get 8! I figured that the closer it gets, I was risking someone jumping in!! I'm not sure why it matters, I just suffer from OCD and like my thread titles a certain way

I'm fascinated to see what's going to happen with Deb, plus how they can actually finish things in 12 episodes... Seems like they're cutting it fine!

The casting of Charlotte Rampling is very interesting.

Is it absolutely 100% certain, no wriggle room whatsoever that this is the last season?

I don't think anyone really knows for definite.

They said it was but then the reaction to Season 7 was so good that some producer or whatever made a comment about carrying on.

I love Dexter but think the time is right. If Season 8 can match 7 they should go on a high.

When they announced the renewal during season 6 for both seasons 7 and 8, it was very much spun as "the end," Showtime entertainment president David Nevins saying "I’m not going to say with absolute certainty that this is the end, but that is the likely scenario, that the series is moving towards a definite end” (full story here)

Apparently it was pretty much Michael C Hall's call whether to carry on or not, so I guess that'll still be the case after this season, depending on if Dex even survives of course!

Has any specific reason been given why it's being shown so early in the year BTW, I've always been used to the season finales being just before Christmas?

As much as I love Dexter, I do hope that they end it at Season 8. Mainly cos I like it when they announced before season 7 that 8 will be the last, and I thought Season 7 really put the pieces in place for a great last season. Really looking forward to it either way.

As Metal Mickey already elaborated, it's been very back and forth. I've seen articles from higher-ups categorically stating that it will be the last and yet there remains uncertainty, hence the question mark in the thread title!

In this interview, executive producer Sarah Colleton says this:

"Since the show has been renewed for two more seasons, is this definitely the end?

Colleton: This was definite. We wanted to end it this year, but the network convinced us that it would be best to do it in two years. In some ways, this is a two-season series-ender. We have worked that out and know where it's going to end. Next year will definitely be the last year of Dexter. Absolutely.
"

Which seems pretty comprehensive, given who it's coming from- yet there has still been no official confirmation.

Last month however, the CEO of CBS (who also runs Showtime) said this:

""We have Ray Donovan coming on with Liev Schreiber, which comes on with Dexter's last season starting in June, and then we have Masters of Sex," Moonves replied with a laugh as if to acknowledge something that Showtime has yet to do."

That is then followed by:

"Showtime executives have been mum on what the future holds for Dexter. A spokesperson for the network told The Hollywood Reporter late Monday that there was "nothing confirmed" about if the series could and would continue beyond season eight."

So quite frankly, **** knows

Has any specific reason been given why it's being shown so early in the year BTW, I've always been used to the season finales being just before Christmas?
I believe it's so they can use it as an instrument to launch the new series 'Ray Donovan'. It makes sense, Dexter has had high viewing figures and so would be an excellent lead-in for a new show. It certainly seemed to work well with Homeland, anyway. Why move Dexter and not Homeland? Beats me, although as I write this I think I recall reading that they're planning to run something else alongside Homeland now. I'll have a look.

EDIT: Ah, Masters of Sex is the other new show. Presumably they're going to use Homeland as a lead-in for that.

Apparently Dexter is back early this year for Showtime to use it to launch new shows. Not entirely sure how that'd work because I thought most new shows in the US start around Septemer, but there you go

As mentioned in the first post, it returns on June 30th. Shows don't specifically have to start in September, that's just considered the start of the TV season for the major networks.

The cable and subscription networks like HBO/Showtime/AMC work to their own schedules, hence why they tend to have fewer episodes per season and run at differing times throughout the year. Even on ABC, Fox, NBC et al, some shows are held off until January (which I believe is known as a mid-season show) and then some will even start after the main season is over (Summer shows, such as AMC's Breaking Bad or Hell on Wheels).

If everything ran between September and May, there'd be an incredibly boring three months inbetween!

It was to be expected based on everything the cast and producers etc have said prior.

Hopefully it will end on a high, not polarising like other season enders recently.

So do we think Dex has to die?
