A drama focused on a serial killer who also works for the Miami Metro Police Department as a blood spatter analyst.


Orphaned as a young child, Dexter was adopted by a police officer who took notice that he was displaying sociopathic tendencies. To give Dexter an outlet for his twisted urge to kill, he teaches him to target only people who deserve it.

Dexter's victims are those who have slipped through the cracks of the justice system, out free and unpunished in society. Dexter works close to the justice system as a blood spatter analyst, which allows him to cover up his own crimes while hiding in a role where the least people would think to look.

The key point immediately obvious to me for the show is that Dexter is not a sociopath. He is simply damaged by his past, which can be overcome. I've yet to see the end; and I hope the writers and creators remember that. There's no need to end the show on a severely dark note. I hope I'm not disappointed. I appreciate everyone here voicing their opinion, and not letting out any spoilers. One way or the other, Dexter could not go on killing; it's just not in him *if* like normal people, he is able to overcome his affliction, even if the public as a whole cannot. Mankind has some growing up to do even still.

I thought the ending was good. A bleak kick in the guts.
Appropriate for this dark series.

While I hated the ending, I think they were wise to call it quits when they did. The last two seasons weren't up to the standards of the previous seasons. I predict at least one Dexter feature film some time in the future - possibly more.

I wish that Dexter would continue because this is one really great show. It keeps me on the edge of my seat. Hope there is a change in plans.

What a shame this is the last series, not enough quality shows on the airwaves.

THE LAST SEASON.What am I going to do without Dexter?! I realise how tragic that sounds (I'm English - that's why I spell realise that way.)

I sure hope Dexter goes on for years to come. We look forward to a show that is actually interesting. So sick of reality shows!!! Keep Dexter.
