Dexter Is Getting The Ax! Officially Ending After Season 8!

The Ice Truck Killer, The Skinner, Trinity- no one can stop Dexter!

Oh, except maybe Les Moonves!

The CBS CEO, who also runs sister network Showtime, let the body parts out of the bag at an investor conference in Palm Beach on Monday.

When discussing the future lineup for the edgy premium network, Les said:

"We have Ray Donovan coming on with Liev Schreiber, which comes on with Dexter's last season starting in June, and then we have Masters of Sex."

We can only assume Masters Of Sex is a more fun version of Masters Of Horror, but the most important word in that sentence was the one he may not have meant to say — last!

It seems the serial killer serial is wrapping up like one of Dexter's kill rooms after season eight! Bummer!

But hey, at least we have a whole season to tie up all the loose ends! We're hoping for one crazy amazing finale!

    The show has been terrible ever since its peek in season 4. They should have ended it then. Season 6 was soooooooo bad , just terrible writing. Seven was slightly better but, it has jumped the shark long ago. Sad.

    This show has not gotten "the ax." Michael C. Hall knew that Season 8 would be his last 2 years ago.

    It was announced forever ago that season 8 would be the last. I think right after season 6, they said 2 more seasons and it's done. No news here.

    Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter have been pretty adamant about Season 8 being the last for a long time now. They have not played along with Showtime boss David Nevins' coy suggestions of a Season 9. Nevins would love for "Dexter" to continue playing mid-wife and wet nurse to all his new shows like it did with "Homeland". He doesn't give a shit if the integrity of the show is compromised coz it was never his baby. I'm glad the stars have pulled the plug.
