It's Official: 'Dexter' Gets Renewed for Sixth Season
“This is the easiest decision I’ve made since I got to Showtime,” entertainment president David Nevins says.
Dexter has been renewed for a sixth season, Showtime confirmed Monday.
The Hollywood Reporter first revealed last week that the network was about to pick up the show again after it earned its second-highest ratings ever on Nov. 28, delivering 2.5 million viewers, up 43% from the fifth season premiere.
“Dexter is the best suspense drama on television,” said David Nevins, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks. “To grow its audience so significantly in its fifth season is an enormous accomplishment by this amazing cast and crew. This is the easiest decision I’ve made since I got to Showtime.”
Season six of the Michael C. Hall starrer, which received seven Emmy nods this year, goes into production next spring in L.A.
