"Dexter" addicts jonesing for a spinoff of the popular Showtime series, now in its eighth and final season, may find a glimmer -- but just a glimmer -- of hope in the announcement Tuesday that series showrunner Scott Buck had signed a development deal with the premium cable network.

"Draw your own conclusions," Showtime president David Nevins said during a press conference at the Television Critics Associations summer meetings in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Afterward, he offered no more guidance than that.

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
