Fans of the hit Showtime series Dexter may be a little saddened that Season 8 of the show will be its last, but they may be happy to know that the network is not ruling out a spinoff series.

"All options are on the table as to where it could go after this," David Nevins, Showtime executive said. "There's nothing actively happening, but you never know what the future holds. We need to get through this season and see how the dust settles and then see where we go from there. I won't rule it out, but I'm not actively planning anything."

The spinoff would star Dexter's brash sister, Deb, played by Jennifer Carpenter.

Nevins also said that the show would "change it's formula" this year.

"The consequences are already starting to hit him. It's jeopardized his most important relationship on earth, which is with his sister; his other relationships on the show will be touched this year, and he's still changing," Nevins said. "Here's a lot of different things in play. Part of what you need to do in a finale is start bringing some of the different threads together: his sister, his son, his love life, his professional life and his childhood trauma."

Dexter Season 8 premieres June 30.
