A 'Dexter' spinoff about Masuka and other ideas - what's your favorite?

"Dexter" came to an end Sunday night (Sept. 22) with an appropriately sad, dark ending. Is there any room for a spinoff?

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... //

'Dexter' series finale: The cast reflects on the past 8 seasons, picks their favorite moments, and pitches possible spinoff ideas

We've spent eight seasons riding along with Dexter's Dark Passenger, and come this Sunday (Sept. 22), we will have to say our final goodbyes as the "Dexter" series finale airs at 9 p.m. ET on Showtime. We have watched Dexter transform from a true psychopathic murderer into a semi-functioning, real human being with emotions via his connections with his family and loved ones --though he still can't shake that pesky need to kill. But when the series first aired eight years ago, none of the stars ever imagined the show would continue on for this long and come this far."I thought that if we got the tone right it would develop some sort of cult following, but not as big of a cult as it's become," series star Michael C. Hall tells Zap2it. "I had just done a series that was very successful that went on for five seasons and I couldn't imagine 'Dexter'... //

Dexter: Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Carpenter Look Back on 8 Seasons of Kills and Thrills

After eight seasons, over 100 kills and more blood than we can imagine, Dexter will sign off for good on Sunday. From the beginning, Dexter Morgan ( Michael C. Hall ) was a serial killer incapable of having emotions or a true human connection. But over the course of eight seasons, he's faced love, loss, heartache and even friendship with his foul-mouthed sister Deb ( Jennifer Carpenter ), proving that he may have the capacity for feelings. Will that be Dexter's downfall in the series finale? We'll find out Sunday (9/8c, Showtime). Before then, however, Hall and Carpenter look back at eight seasons of kills and thrills... //
