A Showtime rep told The Hollywood Reporter later Monday that there was "nothing confirmed" regarding Dexter's fate. At January's Television Critics Association winter TV previews, Showtime President David Nevins was equally coy about the show's future.
Which TV shows should end?
"I'm not making any announcements about when Dexter will end," Nevins said. "Before Dexter goes on the air for their next season, there will be a clear end game in place, but I can't talk about it. The decision of when Dexter will end is ultimately a creative decision and made on creative reasons."
Season 8 of Dexter will premiere on Sunday, June 30 at 9/8c on Showtime.
