Maybe it's time I started watching...
Here's the press release:
SHOWTIME has ordered two more seasons of its award-winning top-rated drama series DEXTER, starring Emmy®- and Golden Globe®-nominated actor Michael C. Hall (“Six Feet Under”), it was announced today by Robert Greenblatt, Showtime President of Entertainment. The Best Drama Series Emmy®-nominated DEXTER premiered its third season three weeks ago to widespread critical and audience acclaim plus record ratings as it surpassed 3 million viewers in its premiere week and ranks as SHOWTIME’s top-rated drama series. Seasons four and five will consist of 12 episodes each, with production on season four set to begin next spring in Los Angeles.
"DEXTER's enormous success is a tribute to the great achievements of its cast, the producing team, the author of the original book, and the gifted Michael C. Hall,” said Greenblatt. “I thought at best we would attract a devoted cult audience but soon realized that, ironically, this show is so thematically rich and layered with humanity that audiences of all kinds have flocked to it."
