Showtime Renews Dexter for Seasons Four and Five

Dexter to Slay Showtime Twice More

Dexter Morgan's got a little more killing to do on Showtime. The network has just picked up two more seasons of Dexter, ensuring it will be around at least through season five.

The third season is airing right now on Showtime. Season four will start shooting in the Spring in Los Angeles.

Dexter's already broken a ton of records for Showtime: It's the network's highest-rated drama, and on DVD, it's the network's best-selling show. It's also gotten boatloads of critical acclaim and nabbed five Emmy nominations this year. In a statement, Showtime entertainment president Robert Greenblatt said:

"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."

So, Dexter fans, are you glad you won't have to say goodbye to your favorite serial killer anytime soon? Do you think the show has enough good material for another two seasons?
