'Dexter' renews for Season 6
In a move that should surprise no one, Showtime announced Monday morning that it will be renewing "Dexter" for a sixth season.
“Dexter” is the best suspense drama on television,” said David Nevins, president of entertainment for Showtime Networks. “This is the easiest decision I’ve made since I got to Showtime.”
"Dexter" had its second-highest ratings ever with this season's 10th episode (Nov. 28), delivering 2.54 million viewers, up 44% from the Season 5 premiere (1.77 million). The telecast came behind the Season 4 finale (2.57 million).
There is no word yet on when the new season will premiere or which guest stars will be appearing. Season 6’s episodes will go into production next spring in Los Angeles.
The “Dexter” Season 5 finale airs Sunday at 9 p.m. Pacific time.
