The end of "Dexter" might not mean the end of the franchise for Showtime.
At the TCAs on Tuesday, the network's president, David Nevins, gave press a glimmer of hope for a "Dexter" spinoff.
You see, Showtime has a two-year deal with "Dexter" executive producer Scott Buck - and he told reporters to "draw your own conclusions" as to what may come out of that.
Likely sensing that he just opened a can of worms, Nevins then clarified that the first priority is to finish out the eighth - and for sure final - season of "Dexter," regardless of the possibilities up ahead with the Buck collaboration.
“There are always things that can be done,” Nevins said. “We have a deal with Scott and we are going to talk to a bunch of different things with him. I don’t know anything. There is nothing real. There’s no sense of whether it will happen, if it will happen, but I want to stay in business with Scott.”
The ending of "Dexter" has been emotional enough to make Jennifer Carpenter cry, so this might be seen as good news for fans of the series. The saga of Michael C. Hall's serial killer Dexter Morgan comes to an end on September 22.
