Showrunner Scott Buck weighs in...
In an interview with Vulture, Dexter showrunner Scott Buck spoke about the season seven finale and if the eighth season will be the show's last.
On if season eight will be the last: "It might be the last. That hasn't been announced yet. We've been picked up for one more season, but whether that is the last one or not has not yet been determined."
On if he thinks it should be the last: "Well, honestly, because we were picked up for two seasons, and the understanding was it may be the last, we're certainly moving in that direction. But until Showtime tells us one way or another we're not making any more definitive decisions."
On if he knows how the series will end: "Oh, absolutely, I know how it ends. But whether it's this season or the next season or further down the line will remain to be determined."
On if Dexter will have a happy ending: "Dexter is a serial killer and serial killers only end in so many ways, and none of those ways seem to be particularly happy or encouraging. I think if we're true to who Dexter is, we're not going to end with Dexter walking off into the sunset."
