'Dexter,' 'Under the Dome' Announce Summer Premiere Dates


dexterYou read that right: Dexter is moving to the summer. For the first time in its eight year run, Dexter will bow not in September, but in June: June 30th, to be exact. It will remain on Sundays at 9pm, which also happens to be the same time slot as True Blood, which runs on HBO, but carries a similar fanbase.  At this weekend's last day of TCA panels, Showtime president David Nevins would neither confirm nor deny whether this season would indeed be Dexter's last: "We’re not making any announcements today about when Dexter will end.... We have clear end game in place,  I can’t talk about it just yet."

Also getting an official premiere date for the summer is Under the Dome, a 13-episode "serialized drama" based on the novel of the same name by Stephen King. Under the Dome is about a small town that is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by a giant, transparent dome. It will air on CBS Mondays at 10pm, beginning June 24th.
