Not ready to say goodbye to Dexter? Then get ready to overreact to this news.
After revealing that Showtime had signed a "rare" two-year overall deal with Dexter showrunner Scott Buck, network president David Nevins was asked whether a spin-off series was still being considered.

"Of course," Nevins told reporters at the Television Critics Association fall previews Tuesday. "We announced a deal with Scott Buck today. Draw your own conclusions."
Pressed for details after the panel, Nevins clarified that nothing is actively in the works and that no deals with cast members have been extended. (The Hollywood Reporter previously reported rumblings of a spin-off centered on Jennifer Carpenter's Debra.) "We have a deal with Scott and we're going to develop a bunch of different things with him," he said. "All options will be explored. We're really not dealing with it at all until we're through this season and maybe for a while thereafter. It's all about the satisfying ending to the show."
To that end...
Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese are at it again.
The duo next team up in The Wolf of Wall Street, the biopic based on the life of Jordan Belfort, a stockbroker who scammed $200 million from investors in the '90s. DiCaprio — who has been directed by Scorsese in The Departed, Shutter Island and Gangs of New York, among others — will play Belfort, joined by Matthew McConaughey, Kyle Chandler and Jonah Hill.

Friday Night Lights may be long over but many of the cast reunited at the ATX Television Festival over the weekend in celebration of the beloved show, to spill some fun secrets and share some heartwarming memories from the five seasons.
Showtime is ending The Borgias earlier than anticipated.
Imagine a world in which the NFL, the NBA and Major League Baseball all decided to move their seasons to the same time of year. It would be chaos, for fans and the professional sports business alike. And yet, in television, that's essentially what happens during pilot season.
The broadcast networks traditionally order pilots during the first few months of the year. From there, it's a race to find the best actors, hire a crew, build sets and produce a show before May, when the upcoming fall schedules are announced. The field has always been crowded, but this spring, several cable networks and online retailer-turned-programmer Amazon are also developing new shows that they hope will go to series (cable networks typically produce pilots throughout the year, usually avoiding the spring).
