Dexter Renewed for Seventh and Eighth Seasons

After months of drawn out contract negotiations with the series’ star Michael C. Hall, serial killer drama Dexter has been picked up for two more seasons by Showtime, taking its total run to at least eight seasons. Whilst there is no official word of confirmation, it seems likely that the eighth outing would be intended as the show’s last, giving it a likely end date of December 2013. 

Showtime president David Nevins said: "Dexter's enormous success is a real tribute to the great achievements of its cast, producers, and the powerhouse performance of Michael C. Hall. 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." Hall added: "On behalf of the entire Dexter family, we relish the invitation to delve ever deeper into Dexter's world."

Production for the seventh season is expected to begin sometime in early-to-mid 2012 for the usual September-October premiere and the sixth season continues to air Sundays 9PM EST.
