I’m going to be honest with you. I stopped watching Dexter halfway through season 7. The feeling that the thing should have been wrapped up already just started to overwhelm me. And if you’re going to be honest with yourselves, you’re probably going to reach the same conclusion.
But like every wickedly hilarious, extremely original and outside the box written series that (maybe) comes out once every five years, the producers simply didn’t know when to stop. Fortunately, the long overdue finale is finally scheduled for later this year. Better late than… far too late, right?
The 2013 ending is not yet official, but CBS Corp. chief executive Les Moonves did already tell investors that the killing spree is to go on for 12 more episodes. The episodes are scheduled for the summer for the first time in the show’s history, with the season 8 debut to air on June 30 on Showtime and the final chapter on September 15.
But the news brings us to the dreaded morality-filled questions of the series’ finale. Should Dexter die, considering, you know, he killed more people than the plague? Or should he survive, because two wrongs make a right and a murderer of murderers is a hero? Your ball, Michael C. Hall.
