So long, "Dexter" — it's been nice watching you dispatch the bad guys.
Showtime confirmed Thursday that the upcoming season of its vigilante serial-killer drama will be the last. The premiere of Season 8 is scheduled for June 30.
The series stars Michael C. Hall as the title character, a troubled forensics investigator who goes to elaborate lengths to torture and kill people he thinks deserve it.
The show helped establish Showtime as a serious contender in original programming after years of laboring in the shadows of HBO.
