Colin Hanks is going from a killer drama to a killer comedy: The actor who played an apocalypse-obsessed serial murderer on Dexter‘s sixth season will guest-star in an episode of Happy Endings, EW has learned. The body count should be considerably lower on the ABC comedy, as he tackles the role of… Colin Hanks, a new celebrity friend of Dave (Zachary Knighton). What brings Hanks into Dave’s world? The Steak Me Home Tonight truck has become a Chicago hotspot boasting designer drinks. READ FULL STORY »

When Showtime recently renewed Dexter for two more seasons, fans wondered: Is this the beginning of the end for the acclaimed serial killer drama?
Though plans could still change, Showtime entertainment president David Nevins tells EW the working assumption is indeed that Dexter will conclude in the eighth season. Moreover, the creative endgame starts sooner than you think — the remaining episodes of the current sixth season will set into motion events that will resonate through the remainder of the series.
“Coming back for two more years gives us clarity about how and when it will go out,” Nevins said at Showtime’s annual holiday party in Los Angeles on Thursday night. “There’s things that are going to happen [this season] that will set up a very clear endgame that will take two seasons to tell. You have got to be there for the last two episodes.” READ FULL STORY »
Dexter is will return for two more seasons, Showtime just announced.
The serial killer drama was renewed for a seventh and eighth season. Each will consist of the show’s standard 12 episodes. The network also closed a deal with star Michael C. Hall for two more rounds. The deal makes Dexter one of cable’s longest-running drama series.
“The series is bigger than it’s ever been in its sixth season, both in terms of audience and its impact on the cultural landscape,” said Showtime topper David Nevins. “Together with Michael, the creative team on the show has a very clear sense of where they intend to take the show over the next two seasons and, as a huge fan, I’m excited to watch the story of Dexter Morgan play out.”
Here’s a question: Does this mean Dexter will end after eight seasons?

Awwww. Y’all know what I realized this week?
It’s been just about one year since we first started our show-mance (and I mean that quite literally). Our mutual love for television has brought us together and I couldn’t be happier about it. So many thanks for your readership, harassment, and love. Sometimes, it all even came rolled in a single e-mail. Crazies after my own heart — I love it.
So I hope you enjoy today’s installment and the comfort of knowing that you’re now officially my longest relationship ever. Woo!!… I think.
Also, celebrate by sending me more questions and ponderings. (E-mail: SpoilerRoom@EW.com or Tweet: @EWSandraG) You’re great people and I appreciate you. Happy Anniversary!! (Note: It was officially last Saturday, but in the grand tradition of all my relationships, I forgot. So we can celebrate now!)
‘GREY’S ANATOMY’: KIM RAVER TALKS TEDDY’S GRIEF
So, readers, was Grey’s Anatomy not the most heart-wrenching thing ever last night? I was consoled only by the fact that I was sure there were other people somewhere bawling along with me. But aside from leaving me with puffy eyes, the episode also left us all with a burning question: What’s going to happen to poor Teddy? Well, when I spoke with Kim Raver, she weighed in on what’s next. “It’s like the time-bomb waiting to explode,” she says. “I know that she doesn’t just dissolve into a puddle on the floor. It’s not that kind of grieving. I know she will go into ‘Let me try to fix it’ mode. But we don’t know how long that will hold.” READ FULL STORY »
Michael C. Hall, Jerry Ferrara lend voices to powerful 'Vietnam in HD' for History Channel -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
The first time I watched the clip below from the History Channel’s Vietnam in HD, I was jarred by how compelling Michael C. Hall’s voice is even when he’s not narrating Dexter’s crazy thoughts. But it also felt a little like Dexter Morgan was telling me about Vietnam — and I couldn’t get enough.
Hall, who narrates the six-hour docudrama, which kicks off Nov. 8, is just one of the many celebrities whose name is attached to the captivating project that tells the story of Vietnam through the eyes of 13 men and women who were there. Other voice talent includes Adrian Grenier, Blair Underwood, Zachary Levi, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Jerry Ferrara, whose voice is featured below in one of two exclusive clips from the special.

Just kidding. Last night was actually the most baseball I’ve watched since the last time I watched a repeat of A League of Their Own on TBS, so don’t take that declaration too seriously. I don’t care who wins — either way, we don’t get Fringe tonight. Pfft.
That said, I have some scoop today that will hopefully satisfy your need for one more week — or make the delay even more painful. I can’t decide which is more truthful, but let’s try to see the sunny side of things.

‘FRINGE’: WHAT YOU WON’T SEE TONIGHT
As great as last night’s Game 6 was, it was hard to ignore the collective sigh among Fringe fans on news that Game 7 would result in a one-week delay of the new Fringe episode. And I’m right there with you — that sucks. Luckily, before I even knew the outcome of the game, I’d planned a healthy serving of dish for you. READ FULL STORY »
