Variety broke the news seconds ago that Showtime has renewed “Dexter” for another two seasons. They were able to add additional seasons because star and exec producer Michael C. Hall has inked a new deal to remain with the show. His previous contract expires at the end of the current season. The upcoming seventh and eighth seasons will consist of 12 episodes each.
Last year’s season five took a nosedive, while the ongoing sixth is actually pretty entertaining (even though absolutely nothing happened in this past Sunday’s episode). The biggest complaint I’ve heard is that Deborah (Jennifer Carpenter) should have caught Dexter (played by Hall) in last season’s finale. I couldn’t agree more. But for the sake of argument, I believe that Showtime needs to set a finite END to the series. The writers need to know when that is so they can begin developing for the series finale. I would prefer a solid two seasons of set up jam-packed with payoffs than an extra few years of the cabler dragging their feet. END STRONG.
