[TV] No “Dexter” Spinoff Talk Until Series Finale Concludes…

There’s been a ton of talk about a potential spinoff to Showtime’s “Dexter,” but conversations won’t begin until the popular series concludes later this summer.

At the end of Showtime’s panel at the Television Critics Association Press tour, Showtime Entertainment President David Nevins was asked about the proposed “Dexter” spinoff and he responded with “we announced a deal with Scott Buck today. Draw your own conclusions,Crave reported. It was an early tease that would end with a door slamming, at least until the series finale.

There’s nothing actively happening,” said Nevins, adding he’s made no deals with any “Dexter” cast members for another series.

He adds, “Of course all options will be explored…We’re really not dealing with it at all until we’re through this season and maybe for a while thereafter.

Part of Nevins’ hesitancy to go into detail appears to be a desire to keep the series finale unspoiled as to who lives or dies.

The original series is everything. I just dropped a hint or a tease,” offered Nevins. “It’s all about the satisfying ending to the show. We have a deal with Scott and we’re going to develop a bunch of different things with him. There’s nothing else to be concluded at this point. I don’t know anything. There’s nothing real. There’s no sense of whether it’ll happen, if it’ll happen but I want to stay in business with Scott.

Nevins concluded by speaking on the finale: “I think it ends with great satisfaction. That’s all I’ll say. I haven’t seen it yet but I have read it and I think it’s quite brilliantly built to.

    I’m very curious how this is going to end. I’m really hoping it’s not predictable.

    Dear lord… does Dexter have the most inept writers, runners and plots in popular TV history?

    Nothing discussed = we have plans and have discussed it at length.

    So from this we can assume no-one dies at the end and we can look forward to Debs spin off. Though personally the idea of the Angel/Quin show where nothing happens in every episode and their character arcs consist of ‘I Quit’ ‘I opened a restaurant’ ‘look food’ ‘restaurant was a bad idea’ ‘i’m back!’

    i can’t see any spin off whatsoever with any of these characters. i worship Jennifer/Deb but i don’t want to see a spin off of her just going around living life. it won’t make sense if Dex isn’t there & vice versa. just end the show and be done with it. come up with something NEW and stop trying to milk EVERY single drop out of this show.

      Yeah it would essentially just be another cop show without the twist of one of them being a serial killer. Let it be done when it’s done.

    One of the best things, I thought, about season 6 was the weird sub-plot…thing going on with Quinn and Batista. It was like a hilarious buddy-cop setup, but with characters that I’d already been familiar with for several years, so it was even funnier. If they did a spinoff series that was a buddy-cop comedy/drama starring Quinn and Batista, I’d TOTALLY watch that!

    …at least it’d be more interesting than the bullshit that’s been season 8 so far.
