dexter renewal

Big news for Dexter fans. Showtime just picked up the series for two more seasons (in addition to the one in progress). Seasons 4 and 5 will each have 12 episodes. This is great news for the show, and a big vote of confidence from the network.

Here's quote from Showtime president:

"Dexter's enormous success is a tribute to the great achievements of its cast, the producing team, the author of the original book [Jeff Lindsay], and the gifted Michael C. Hall," says Showtime president of entertainment Robert Greenblatt. "I thought at best we would attract adevoted 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."

If you're not watching this show, you're in luck because it's actually much more fun to watch on DVD because you cannot stop watching once you've started. Get on it. Admittedly, I'm not caught up this season because of my lack of premium channels, but I'm hearing Jimmy Smits is a stellar addition to the cast.

Gossip Sidenote: Word on the street is that Michael C. Hall (Dexter) and Jennifer Carpenter (Debra) are officially dating. I know they are actors, but the brother/sister thing is still weird.
