The Showtime series Dexter will reportedly end its run after its eighth season.
"This was definite," said executive producer Sara Colleton. "We wanted to end it this year, but the network convinced us that it would be best to do it in two years. In some ways, this is a two-season series-ender. We have worked that out and know where it's going to end. Next year will definitely be the last year of 'Dexter.' Absolutely."
The series stars Michael C. Hall as a police forensics expert who moonlights as a serial killer.
Colleton also discussed the character played by Yvonne Strahovski.
“She plays this woman named Hannah, who took off from this small rinky-dink Florida town and ran off with this older guy and they went on this wild killing spree,” Colleton said. “So when they got caught, she turned state’s evidence on the boyfriend, he went to jail for life and she started a new life. Years later, she’s in her 30s and she will intersect with Dexter. I would say Hannah is a still water that runs very deep and is quite unlike any woman Dexter has ever known.”
Another Showtime series set to end after its eighth season is the comedy series Weeds.
That series focuses on a widow (played by Mary-Louise Parker), who begins selling cannabis to support her two sons following her husband’s death from a heart attack. She and her family become more involved in illegal activities during the course of the series.
