IT'S OFFICIAL - DEXTER RENEWED FOR SEASON 7 & SEASON 8! - Press Release

Wow! Read the official press release below!

DEXTER® TAKES A STAB AT TWO MORE SEASONS

SHOWTIME® Renews Its Hit Drama Series For 7th And 8th Seasons

LOS ANGELES, CA — (November 18, 2011) SHOWTIME has ordered two more seasons of its award-winning, top-rated drama series DEXTER, starring Golden Globe® award-winning actor Michael C. Hall, it was announced today by David Nevins, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc. On the heels of Hall and SHOWTIME closing a new, two season deal for Hall to return to the series, production will begin on season seven in 2012 in Los Angeles. Seasons seven and eight will consist of 12 episodes each.

The Emmy®-nominated DEXTER opened its sixth season in October and continues to earn impressive ratings, most recently delivering its fifth consecutive week of growth. Season-to-date, the series is averaging 5.12 million weekly viewers on all platforms (including On Demand, replays and DVR), making it the highest rated season yet. Season six of DEXTER is executive produced by John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, Scott Buck, Manny Coto and Michael C. Hall.

"DEXTER's enormous success is a real tribute to the great achievements of its cast, producers, and the powerhouse performance of Michael C. Hall,” said Nevins. “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. 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.”

Michael C. Hall added, “On behalf of the entire DEXTER family, we relish the invitation to delve ever deeper into Dexter's world."

One of the most acclaimed shows on television, DEXTER stars Hall, who has earned multiple Emmy nominations as well as a SAG award for his role as a complicated and conflicted blood-spatter expert for the Miami police department who moonlights as a serial killer. The show has received multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for best television drama series, as well as a prestigious Peabody Award in 2008, and was twice named one of AFI’s Top Ten television series. The series also stars Jennifer Carpenter, Desmond Harrington, C.S. Lee, Lauren Vélez, David Zayas, and James Remar.

  1. Definitely Wow! Its Amazing news and I guess this deal will make Dexter one of cables longest running drama series! What I also love about the anouncement is that the producers know where they are taking the show in the next two seasons! Unlike other shows (like Lost) where they had no idea what to do and ruined the series! MCH and rest of the csst, CONGRATS! You deserve all the success.

  13. Awesome! I really hope that Deb finds out at the end of Season 6. One of the very best moments in the novels is that point when Deb asks Dexter to kill someone... and he does it "as a gift" on a special occasion. They kinda imitated that moment in season 5 of the show when Dex gives Lumen the slide, but it would mean so much more ominious and freakin cool if it was Deb. It's that moment when you realized she is Harry's Daughter after all. Ha Ha. Totally twisted!
