Dexter, Showtime Agree to Two More Seasons
In October we reported that Dexter’s future was in jeopardy because Showtime and Michael C. Hall could not agree over a contract. The original conflict was when Showtime offered $20 million for the next two seasons, the equivalent to $800,000 per episode for Hall, while the actor/executive producer and his representatives asked for $1 million per episode which will total to $24 million.
Now, Deadline reports the premium cable network and Hall have agreed on a two-year contract. This will extend Dexter through eight seasons; both new seasons will be comprised of 12 episodes.
The sixth season currently airs on Sundays at 10 p.m. EST and is scheduled to air its finale on Dec. 18.
