Dexter Returns for Season 8 in June!
This is one I didn't see coming, but according to Showtime boss David Nevins' announcement at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour, the hit drama will debut three months earlier than usual on Sunday, June 30 at 9/8c, where it will lead into a brand new Showtime original drama.
Dexter and Ray Donovan Summer 2013
The return of Dexter and the premiere of Ray Donovan Sunday, June 30th only on Showtime.
Check out this NEW Video (above) that catches you up with Dexter's NEW schedule as well as the Liev Schreiber vehicle, 'Ray Donovan.'
The Showtime hit is moving to summer for what could be its final season. Dexter season 8 will debut June 30 at 9 p.m. to serve as a lead-in for Showtime’s new series Ray Donovan, which stars Liev Schreiber as a professional “fixer” for the rich and famous.
Showtime's entertainment president assures that the Dexter team will still have plenty of time to create a strong season. “They had a lot of advance warning [that this was happening] and they know where they’re going,” he said. “No less production time; a little less vacation time.”
Dates released for more NEW and returning Showtime Original Programming:
In addition to the big news that Dexter fans have only to wait five more months for season 8 to commence, Nevins announced that Showtime's Golden Globe & Emmy award-winning thriller Homeland, will return for its third season Sept. 29 and will be paired with the new Masters and Johnson period drama Masters of Sex.
