After a simple Thanksgiving tweet off the Official Dexter Twitter account, fans began rejoicing that the 8 season show, that ended with not so pleasing ending for fans, was returning and continuing the story of Dexter Morgan, the serial killer who kills bad people.

However, Showtime has now come forth and confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that they have no intentions of bringing back Dexter at this time.
According to The Hollywood Reporter,
“We continue to talk about it,” Showtime topper David Nevins told reporters in January 2014. “If we were to do it, we have to have a very good reason to do it. It has to feel like it’s a new show. I’m not interested in doing it if it’s just a continuation. If we were to do it, I would only do it with Michael.”
In April 2013, Nevins said that “all options were on the table” when THR asked if Showtime would explore rumblings about a Dexter spinoff built around Jennifer Carpenter’s now dearly departed Debra Morgan. Talks of a potential spinoff also heated up after Nevins inked Dexter showrunner Scott Buck to a two-year development deal with the network.
