Showtime's President: "I think there's a lot of life left in Dexter"!

With Showtime's Dexter leaving Season 5 with record ratings and getting picked up for Season 6, many fans are wondering (considering how close Dexter comes to being caught) how much life is left in the series? How much longer can Dexter run? Today, at the Television Critics Association Press Tour, Showtime's President of Entertainment, David Nevens, talked about his feelings surrounding the Bay Harbor Butcher's longevity.

"I think there's a lot of life left in Dexter," Nevins said. "Just, from the numbers, it's up 11% in its fifth season which defies the usual physics of television ratings. I think the audience is still coming to it. It's not a plot driven show. It's, fundamentally, a character-driven show. A lot of the show is the tracking of his evolution and in the maturation of Dexter he's barely an adolescent. In the way I watch the show. It's been picked up for one more year, but I personally believe there's life beyond that."
