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."

Idris Elba, Luther
Talking to Idris Elba can be disorienting. No matter how often he references his acclaimed roles as Baltimore drug lord Stringer Bell on The Wire ("That part spoiled me and catapulted me onto the radar," he says) or Dunder Mifflin big boss Charles Miner on The Office ("I can't believe I got paid to have so much fun"), it doesn't jibe with the East London inflection coming out of his mouth. Can this be the same actor?

One of the funniest bits on 30 Rock's recent live episode was Jon Hamm's cameo as a guy whose hand transplant goes awry (a classic horror-movie staple). This week, it's Allison's turn to play it a bit more straight, as she gets a skin graft on her hand and it begins acting up as if the other hand doesn't know what it's doing. The episode is titled "Talk to the Hand." Good to know moving to Fridays and a different network didn't rob the series of its sense of humor.
The line between genius and insanity can be treacherously thin, which makes for electrifying viewing when our TV heroes turn out to be basket cases.
