Showtime’s Entertainment President dropped the mother of all teasers today when asked if there was any chance he’d spinoff Dexter, which ends its run in September.
Pointing to the two-year development deal he just made with Dexter showrunner Scott Buck, Nevins said with a smile, “draw your own conclusions.”
Afterwards, Nevins clarified to a group of reporters that “we are really not dealing with it at all until we are through with this season and maybe a while thereafter.” But he definitely left the door open for some kind of spinoff.
“There are always things that can be done,” Nevins said, when pressed. “We have a deal with Scott and we are going to talk to a bunch of different things with him. I don’t know anything. There is nothing real. There’s no sense of whether it will happen, if it will happen, but I want to stay in business with Scott.”
In a press release, Showtime said Buck is currently in development on a few projects for Showtime, including supervising the script for Matthew Specktor’s novel American Dream Machine, which Dexter’s Michael C. Hall will also executive produce and Specktor will write.
