The actors, who met while filming Showtime's drama series, have been married for two years.

After nearly two years of marriage, Dexter stars Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter are getting a divorce.

Representatives for Hall and Carpenter told Entertainment Weekly that the couple's split was amicable.

"Having been separated for some time, Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall have filed for divorce," the reps said in a joint statement.

The couple met while filming the Showtime drama, which on Sunday concluded its fifth season with an estimated 2.5 million viewers and ratings on par with Season 4.

Dexter, on which Hall and Carpenter play brother and sister, has been renewed for a sixth season set to air next year.

The couple married Dec. 31, 2008, and separated earlier this season. Hall, who picked up a Golden Globe and SAG Award for his performance as Dexter's likable serial killer, completed treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma this year.
