With Dexter's finale scheduled for September, spoilers and speculation have been released regarding how the series will end.
Executive producer Sara Colleton talked to TV Line, in a report published Wednesday, about their take on the series finale and what she thinks fans' reception will be.
"This has been the ending that we [executive producers] have talked about for years now," Colleton said. "So to us, it feels right for our show and how we feel about it."
Despite Colleton and her fellow producers thinking it will be a fitting ending, she knows the show's viewers won't entirely feel positive about it.
"There will be people who hate it," she revealed, "but we can't try to anticipate that or put it through the lens of any other show's finale - because that was another show. This is our show. This is Dexter."
The executive producer concluded, "at the end of the day, we would rather go down with what we feel is right than try to figure out how to make everybody happy. We feel that we've pulled off what we wanted, and that is what we needed to feel."
