A new season of Dexter? Seriously? That would be great! Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like it will happen any time in the near future – despite the rumors running wild on social media. It’s a hoax, ya’ll. While we’ve recently reported on Michael C. Hall has been doing recently, it doesn’t appear that a new season of Showtime’s hit show and cult favorite is in the cards at this point.

Via Daily Mail:

The popular crime drama Dexter may have ended with the titular character faking his own death. Unfortunately for fans of the show, no such luck will be had when it comes to its own revival.

A viral poster seen online hinting at a ninth season of the crime drama has been exposed as a fraud.

A recent Facebook post from Euforia Studios showed Dexter and costar Yvonne Strahovski with a boat in the foreground and the logos of Netflix and Showtime beneath. The post has since garnered more than 20,000 likes, 73,000 comments and 171,000 shares.

Given how real looking the poster looked and Netflix’s penchant for revivals of popular shows, fans quickly got their hopes up.

Unfortunately, those hopes were soon dashed after fans realized that a revival of the popular crime drama would be all but impossible due to the current filming schedule of the show’s main actors.

A representative of Showtime finally quashed the rumor for good, telling IGN that ‘there is no truth to this rumor’ that a new season of Dexter would be filmed. Read more here
