A possible Dexter spin-off could be in the works at Showtime, home of the American television drama series, it has emerged.
Digital Spy reports that Showtime’s president, David Nivens, when asked about the possibility of a spin-off from Dexter, he referred to the fact that they’d recently signed a two-year contract with Dexter executive producer Scott Buck.
“We announced a deal with Scott Buck today. Draw your own conclusions,” Nivens said.
Nivens was speaking at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, about the final season of Dexter, which commenced broadcast on 1 June.
Later, when pressed further by the Hollywood Reporter, Nivens added, “It's not necessarily a spinoff," Nevins told reporters after the panel. "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.”
Dexter began in 2006. Season 1 was largely based on the Jeff Lindsay’s book, Darkly Dreaming Dexter, the first in his Dexter novel series. The TV series has since departed from the book series, however. It stars Michael C Hall in the eponymous role and Hall’s ex-wife, Jennifer Carpenter, as Dexter’s sister, Debra Morgan.
By day, Dexter Morgan is a blood-spatter-pattern analyst working for the Miami Metro Police Department. By night, he is a serial killer.
In April, after confirmation was made that Season 8 of Dexter would be the last, Nivens told the Hollywood Reporter that he wouldn’t “rule out” a potential spin-off built around Jennifer Carpenter’s foul-mouthed detective.
