Showtime boss David Nevkins officially announced the returning dates of Dexter and Homeland on Saturday during the winter TV previews.

The serial killer drama Dexter will debut its season eight premiere on Sunday, June 30th at 9/8c. While Emmy-winner Homeland stays put on the fall lineup next year on Sunday, Sept. 29th.

Though there had been rumors that Dexter season 8 will be the final run of the show, the network boss isn’t confirming anything at this point. He shared his thoughts on this matter during the event:

“I’m not making any announcements about when Dexter will end. Before Dexter goes on the air for their next season, there will be a clear end game in place, but I can’t talk about it. The decision of when Dexter will end is ultimately a creative decision and made on creative reasons.”

The summer airing of Dexter will be used to promote Showtime’s new series, Ray Donovan. Homeland, despite of the season 2 backlash it gained concerning some of its outrageous plots, will also serve as a launchpad for its fall season newbie, Masters of Sex.
