Showtime are splitting their successful pairing of Dexter and Homeland this year. Dexter's eighth and (presumed) final season will now begin on 30 June, helping to launch the network's new drama Ray Donovan (starring Liev Schreiber as a fixer to the rich and famous). Homeland will retain an autumn premiere on 29 September for its third season, to support new drama Masters of Sex (which stars Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan as sex researchers).
This is great news for fans of Dexter, who will be seeing new episodes three months earlier than usual. Happy?
