‘Dexter’ season 8 and ‘Homeland’ season 3: When you can learn more this month

Dexter and Debra MorganAnyone who reads this page regularly likely knows one thing about us already: we are pretty much in love with Showtime’s Sunday-night lineup. After all, there is not much else on TV right now that really provides the same level of intensity mixed with the occasional “holy s**t” moment that you use in order to annoy all of your friends.

So when will we find out some more information about these two magnificent pieces of entertainment in “Dexter” and “Homeland”? While it is not likely that there will be any major plot points dropped major in the week when Showtime president David Nevins speaks out at the Television Critics Association on January 12, we do anticipate a few assorted bits and pieces shared.

The first thing that Nevins will likely do is praise the incredible performance of both shows in the ratings, especially given the fact that each show established new series highs in terms of total viewership. (Since Showtime is subscriber base, they are not as reliant on specific demographics as some other networks out there.) From there, the inevitable question will probably come about whether or not “Dexter” has a future beyond season 8 (which seems unlikely, given the current contract of star Michael C. Hall, along with the desire of producers to have the show end when the time is right).

We know that the writing process has already begun on the presumed final “Dexter” season, and the “Homeland” writers’ room will get together by the end of the month. Nevins may use this panel as a means to talk in the case of the latter show about how much of Damian Lewis we are going to see, in addition to who some of the new writers could be and whether or not much of production will happen overseas.

Do you agree that these two shows are among the cream of the television crop? If you want to see who we think is Dexter’s biggest threat moving forward on the show, be sure to head over to the link here.
