One of the enduring mysteries in TV now has a final answer: "Dexter" will end, after next season, its eighth. (And believe me, there was a time when it looked as if "Dex" would go on forever -- or until every last monster, serial killer and evildoer in South Florida was dispatched by the blood-splatter specialist with a secret ... ) 

 The eighth and final season begins June 30 at 9 p.m.

"'Dexter' is a landmark franchise for our network, and we cannot wait to unveil the conclusion of this series, as we know it, to the millions of passionate fans who have supported the show season after season," said David Nevins, president of entertainment of Showtime Networks Inc. "We'd like to thank Michael, Jennifer and 'Dexter 's' indomitable cast, executive producers, writers and crew for eight incredible seasons."
