Dexter’s producers have confirmed drama series Season 8 will be its last.
In a post on the show’s Facebook page, producers said they wanted fans to be the “first to know” that the upcoming series will be the finale.
Dexter, about a forensics expert who moonlights as a serial killer, began in 2006.
In 2010, Dexter‘s star, Michael C. Hall, won the Golden Globe for best actor in a Drama.
The show, which airs on cable network Showtime, has been one of its most successful programmes, with steady ratings throughout its run.
Dexter Season 8 will debut on June 30.
The new season will feature British actress Charlotte Rampling as a neuropsychiatrist specialising in serial killers.
Speaking before the announcement, Michael C. Hall told Entertainment Weekly: “I don’t imagine I’ll jump right back into something, but such amazing things are happening on television, to rule it out entirely would be silly.
“I look forward to finding out what life feels like without Dexter.”
