Dexter’s ‘End Game’ Towards Series Finale Begins In Final Two Episodes Of This Season. Hell Yeah.

Dexter. Sort of a bore these days. You know nothing truly terrible can happen to the Morgan. The whole show feels like its been in a holding pattern, waiting to be waived in. Bored fans, rejoice. The final descent into the Bay Harbor Butcher begins soon.


When Showtime  recently renewed  Dexter  for two more seasons, fans wondered: Is this the beginning of the end for the acclaimed serial killer drama?

Though plans could still change, Showtime entertainment president David Nevins tells EW the working assumption is indeed that  Dexter  will conclude in the eighth season. Moreover, the creative endgame starts sooner than you think – the remaining episodes of the current sixth season will set into motion events that will resonate through the remainder of the series.

“Coming back for two more years gives us clarity about how and when it will go out,” Nevins said at Showtime’s annual holiday party in Los Angeles on Thursday night. “There’s things that are going to happen [this season] that will set up a very clear endgame that will take two seasons to tell. You have got to be there for the last two episodes.”

I love this. Love this. With the end in sight, the show can begin taking chances and forgetting about consequences. Knowing that the show is launching into its final act and that anything can happen  is an electric shock to the tepid show’s grundel.
