TORONTO (September 18, 2013) – After eight seasons, 95 episodes, 25 Emmy® and 10 Golden Globe® award nominations, only one question remains: how will it all end? Bell Media’s The Movie Network (Eastern Canada) and Corus Entertainment’s Movie Central (Western Canada) conclude an iconic series with a monumental final episode of DEXTER, airing Sunday, Sept. 22 at 9 p.m. ET/MT, day-and-date with Showtime in the U.S.

Last Sunday’s penultimate episode saw Dexter (Michael C. Hall) preparing to leave Miami with son Harrison (Luke Andrew Kruntchev) and soul mate Hannah (Yvonne Strahovski), confident that his dark passenger will finally find the light. Meanwhile, viewers were left gasping as Dexter’s nemesis, Oliver Saxon (Darri Ingolfsson) was freed by a duped U.S. Marshall, allowing him to escape and shoot Deb (Jennifer Carpenter), leaving Dexter’s sister bleeding out on the floor of an abandoned mental hospital. With a literal storm brewing in Miami, the stage is set for a thrilling finale.
