Dexter Morgan has at least two more seasons of killing left in him. Showtime announced that the blood-splatter analyst by day, serial killer by night series has been renewed for a seventh and eight season.
“Dexter‘s enormous success is a real tribute to the great achievements of its cast, producers and the powerhouse performance of Michael C. Hall,” Showtime president David Nevins said in a statement. “The series is bigger than it’s ever been in its sixth season. Together with Michael, the creative team on the show has a very clear sense of where they intend to take the show over the next two seasons and, as a huge fan, I’m excited to watch the story of Dexter Morgan play out.”
Season 6 is currently airing on Showtime. Season 7 will begin production in 2012.
