Yup, That ‘Dexter’ Spinoff Is Probably Going To Happen

Dexter premiered on Showtime on October 1, 2006. That same week, The Departed and the Oscar-winning Employee of the Month were released in theaters and Justin Timberlake’s “SexyBack” continued to be the number-one song in the country, edging the title track to the Grammy-winning Employee of the Month soundtrack. Point is, Dexter has seemingly been on TV for as long as our TV-riddled brains can remember, stalking us like some kind of killer, and if Showtime’s entertainment president David Nevins has his way, it’ll be on a bit longer.

Dexter showrunner Scott Buck is staying in business with Showtime. At TCA today, the pay cable network announced that it has signed a rare overall deal with Buck for new projects as Dexter is wrapping its eight-season run. “We made the deal to keep him in the family,” Nevins said. He later hinted at what Buck may be tackling under his overall deal. Asked whether a Dexter spinoff is still in the works, Nevins responded, “Of course. We just signed a deal with Scott Buck, draw your conclusions.” (Via)

Nevins later added, “We’re really not dealing with it at all until we’re through this season and maybe a while thereafter…I don’t know that there will ever be a spinoff. It could well never happen,” which is just his cagey way of saying, but not saying that coming fall 2016, it’s Masuka Family Fun Hour, only on Showtime.
