'Dexter' executive producer talks about show's last season

HallFor 'Dexter' fans, the end is near. Is it near for Dexter himself?

Sara Colleton is an executive producer on the series and has been since it began eight seasons ago (counting this last one). As production is coming to an end, emotions are getting high on set, she said, saying that it is "all crushing together." 

One of the biggest unsolved mysteries left is what happens with Dexter (played by Michael C. Hall) and his sister Deb (Jennifer Carpenter, Hall's ex-wife). At the end of last season (no spoilers!) something big happened that forever changed their relationship and which finds Deb in a bad place mentally when this season kicks off.

Colleton revealed what she wants to happen to Showtime's most beloved siblings.

"Yes, they both should survive but we have a very involved season ahead of us so it's not something to anticipate at this moment," she said.

She also revealed that the show's creative staff has known how things end for some time now.

"For two years. [Showrunner] Scott Buck and [executive producer] Manny Coto are writing that last script. We have it all beaten out and we know what it's going to be and we've known it for a long time. Hopefully it will be satisfying and give some people something to think about with this eight-year journey Dexter has taken and what he's explored and what he's tried to do and what he's tried to become. Hopefully it will resonate with some insight for our audience. We all know that no matter what we do there are going to be a lot of people who are unhappy with it. We're trying to not think about that and just think of what everyone who has been on the show from the beginning feels is right and that's all we can do. No matter what we do we'll still be excoriated," she said.

Season 8 of "Dexter' premieres this Sunday at 9 p.m. on Showtime. Will you be watching? What’s your prediction for how things end?

i have no doubt they will write a perfect series finale considering how the last 8 years have been nothing but perfect

He may kill himself because he feels so guilty about how his uncontrolable killing has affected Deb and how he can't stop his behavior and is a prisoner to his urges. But, what will happen to Harrison? Maybe they should reconsider and extend the series.......
