Ever since Dexter first aired we wondered how would his life end up? Will he get caught? go to jail? get killed? or live a happy life with no more killing? It looks like we will finally have that answer next year. TV Guide magazie has an interview with executive producer Sara Colleton and she confirms that next season will be Dexter’s last. Season 7 starts this fall so that means we will get a two-season series-ender which will give us plenty of time to wrap up all the story lines nicely.
As a fan of the show since season 3 I can say that this show has had its ups and downs. Many times I felt like they the show is dragging itself out but then it has its moments that remind you why you love this show. I hate to see Dexter end but at least we can expect this show to end with a bang. The quote from this interview that stuck with me the most was this part:
From the very beginning, when I first started developing the pilot, I always knew it would be a seven-year arc for this series. I feel easily that we can be an eight-year show, but I never want it to get old and stale. I want us to go out on a high and everybody on the show is determined to keep the level of it up to the very end. It’s always wise to know when it’s time to leave the stage before you’re asked to leave the stage.
Knowing that the show will end next year gives us this count down to answer what will happen to Dexter at the end? Its a question we been waiting 8 years get answered. You can read the full interview at TV Guide.
