Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(PASADENA, Calif.) — The Showtime series Dexter will likely end after two more seasons.

Speaking at the winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif., on Thursday, the cable network’s entertainment president, David Nevins, said Dexter’s eighth season will be “the likely endpoint, but I’m leaving open the possibility that plans could change.”

Two of the show’s main stars, Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter, had their divorce finalized last month, but Nevins said their professional relationship hasn’t changed.  He said their real-life split “makes for an interesting ripple in the show.”

Carpenter plays Deb, the adoptive sister of Hall’s titular character.  The sixth season of the show ended last month with Deb coming to terms with the fact that she’s fallen for Dexter.
