Showtime's entertainment president David Nevins has said that Dexter could continue beyond season eight.

The series, which just concluded its sixth season, was renewed in November for two more seasons. At the time, Nevins said that the show was likely to end after its eighth season.

However, the Showtime president has now teased that the show could return for a ninth instalment.

"This is the likely endpoint, but I'm leaving open the possibility that plans could change," Nevins said while at the TCA press tour.

"I think there's a very clear trajectory now of where they're going. I think it's going to help to write with that endgame in mind," he continued. "I've been pushing to shake up the formula a little bit. I think there should be fundamentally different dynamics now."

Dexter stars Michael C Hall and Jennifer Carpenter recently finalised their divorce The couple, who play siblings on-screen, split in December 2010 after less than two years of marriage.

Carpenter has since insisted that the pair put the show first, claiming their relationship history does not affect the series.
