Showtime renews 'Dexter' for two more seasons




For those of you wondering if Michael C. Hall's serial killer-killing blood-spatter analyst will ever be found out, it'll take at least two more season. Showtime has reupped the show to give Jennifer Carpenter's Deborah Morgan some time to finally figure out her brother carves bad guys up like Thanksgiving turkeys.

"Dexter's enormous success is a real tribute to the great achievements of its cast, producers, and the powerhouse performance of Michael C. Hall," Showtime entertainment president David Nevins told Reuters in a statement. "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."

Each season, which will be numbers seven and eight for the popular drama, will have 12 episodes each. Dexter-watchers here at tbt* aren't really digging this year so much, so maybe things will rebound nicely.
