Jennifer Carpenter Books Post-Dexter TV Gig on New ABC Drama Pilot Sea of Fire Although some Dexter fans are still mourning the loss of Deb Morgan, Jennifer Carpenter is ready to put the role behind her, with the help of a new ABC pilot, Sea of Fire. Get the scoop.
Whether or not you agreed with how "Dexter" ended in the series finale, something that all fans can agree on is that the drama was one iconic show ... and star Aimee Garcia, who played Dexter's nanny and Angel's sister Jamie, knows it."It's really nice to be a part of a show that got such critical claim but also has such commercial success," Garcia told Zap2it at Elyse Walker's Ninth Annual Pink Party on Saturday (Oct. 19). "I joke about how we have more facebook fans than 'Modern Family' or 'American Idol.' I went deep sea fishing in the Cook Islands and the fisherman didn't have a TV but he knew about 'Dexter.' It has that global reach."Garcia is very outspoken over how lucky she is to have been a part of such a huge pop culture phenomenon. "At Comic-Con we had 6,500 screaming fans," Garcia says.

Dexter Morgan’s story of a serial killer with a heart of…well less evil than one would expect for a serial killer, came to an end on Showtime this year after eight seasons. That was the end of Dexter ‘s tale, but for those who prefer to bingewatch television (and perhaps have cut their cable cord), they can relive every visit from Dexter’s dark passenger again on Netflix beginning this Halloween, Thursday, October 31st. Although Showtime has their own streaming service available to subscribers, the channel’s parent company, CBS Corporation struck a deal with streaming giant Netflix to provide Dex with a new home. Seasons one through four will be available to watch instantly on Halloween. Seasons five through eight will follow on January 1st, 2014. It’s a rare deal in an age when premium content providers like HBO and Showtime are increasingly reserving their series for their own exclusive streaming sites.

The Dexter series finale enraged many fans for many reasons; chief among them was the fact that Dexter lived — and became a logger? — despite having driven his boat into a hurricane. "How about that finale?" said Dexter producer John Goldwyn at the NYFF premiere of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty this weekend, when we asked how the writers decided on that ending. "They won't let us kill him," he told us. "Showtime was very clear about that. When we told them the arc for the last season, they just said, 'Just to be clear, he's going to live.' There were a lot of endings discussed because it was a very interesting problem to solve, to bring it to a close. People have a relationship with Dexter , even if it doesn't have the size and the ferocity of the fan base for Breaking Bad . But it has a very core loyal following." Yes, and a mostly disappointed one. Read More.... http://www.vulture.com/2013/10/dexter-writers-werent-allowed-to-kill-dexter.html

"Dexter" came to an end Sunday night (Sept. 22) with an appropriately sad, dark ending. Is there any room for a spinoff? Spoiler alert -- this article will talk about the series finale, so don't keep reading if you haven't watched it yet. In the run-up for the final episode, the "Dexter" cast and creators were asked about possible spinoffs and some of them, now that we've seen how the show ends, are obviously not going to come to fruition. There were mentions made of a Deb-centered spinoff, or a Deb-and-Quinn spinoff. But now that Deb has met her untimely end and is floating dreamily in her white sheet out off the coast of Florida, we don't think those are very feasible anymore. Obviously, the cast or creators pitching those ideas didn't want to give anything away.Likewise, Yvonne Strahovski pitched to The Hollywood Reporter that Hannah McKay could have a spinoff where she starts her... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/09/a-dexter-spinoff-about-masuka-and-other-ideas---whats-your-favorite.html
