As everyone’s favorite serial killer-killer bows out of the TV limelight, fans must be wondering where they can get their dose of vigilante justice. The show is set to end this September, but Showtime may have already started filling the Dexter-sized hole that will be left in our hearts, as they’ve signed on showrunner Scott Buck for another two-year contract.
According to TheWrap, when Showtime president David Nevins was asked about a spinoff at the Television Critics Association press tour, Nevins gave a simple response. “We announced a deal with Scott Buck today. Draw your own conclusions.” While it seems the company are keeping their lips mostly sealed on details of the new series—as to not spoil the ending of their current one—it does seem that this won’t be the last we see of these characters.
While Nevins didn’t confirm that there would definitely be a spin-off, he did mention that it’s still something being tossed around. So while the series won’t necessarily end as a jumping-off point for a potential Deb spin-off as rumored, there’s still potential for more stories from the deeply troubled Morgan family.
Buck is still working on developing other projects for Showtime as well, including an adaptation of Matthew Spektor’s novel American Dream Machine, to be executive produced by Michael C. Hall.
