Say goodbye to your favorite serial killer! News broke on Monday that the eighth season of Showtime's beloved series Dexter will be its last.
CBS Corp. president and CEO Les Moonves announced the series' finale to investors, Deadline reports, but it came as no surprise seeing as Showtime President David Nevins has been hinting at the show's "end game" since January's TCA's. The beginning of the end for Dexter starts on June. 30, the show's first-ever summer premiere.
Dexter, starring Michael C. Hall, first aired in 2006 and follows a likable Miami police forensics expert who moonlights as a serial killer of criminals that he believes have escaped justice.
Aside from Dexter, Moonves also shared some good news, announcing a new show starring Liev Schreiber titled Ray Donovan. "And then we have Masters of Sex, a story of Masters and Johnson, which is a very exciting show. A show that you wouldn't see on CBS but it works on Showtime," Moonves added. "And that comes behind Homeland in September. And just announced, we're doing a series about the Vatican, which I think is rather timely, which Ridley Scott is directing for us. So we're very excited about that."
