Showtime President David Nevins: "No One Pitched The Idea Of Killing Dexter"

Showtime President David Nevins attends a Q&A session for the Television Critics Association. During this, he puts to bed one persistent Internet rumor – no, Showtime executives did not pressure the Dexter show runners to keep the protagonist alive at the end of the series.  “It was never even discussed with me. No one pitched the idea of killing Dexter. The only one who wanted to die was David Duchovny [as the character of Hank Moody on “Californication”, which ended its seven-season run earlier this year]. Maybe half-facetiously, but he always thought Hank Moody should go out in a blaze of glory. But neither Michael [C. Hall, who played Dexter] nor the producers ever thought that was the appropriate ending, that Dexter should die. Honestly, it was never discussed.” 

So does this mean Showtime might come back to the character of Dexter at some point? “It’s always a possibility. Worked for Jack Bauer. Worked for the Bluth family.”

  1. Why would anyone pitch the idea of killing Dexter when Showtime had already laid down the dictum that Dexter cannot die?! Nevins is just parsing words.
