"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.
