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.”
