DEXTER's Body Count Rises By 24
SHOWTIME RENEWS ITS TOP-RATED DRAMA SERIES FOR 4th AND 5th SEASONS
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 21 -- SHOWTIME has ordered two more
seasons of its award-winning top-rated drama series DEXTER, starring
Emmy(R)- and Golden Globe(R)-nominated actor Michael C. Hall ("Six Feet
Under"), it was announced today by Robert Greenblatt, Showtime President of
Entertainment. The Best Drama Series Emmy(R)-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."
One of the most acclaimed series on television, DEXTER stars Michael C.
Hall (two-time Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R)-nominee) as a complicated and
conflicted blood-spatter expert for the Miamipolice department who
moonlights as a serial killer. The show was nominated this year for five
Emmy(R) Awards including Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead
Actor in a Drama Series. The series also received a prestigious 2008
Peabody Award and was twice named one of AFI's top ten television programs.
DEXTER is SHOWTIME's highest rated drama and was the network's highest
rated show in 2007. Additionally, DEXTER has been the most successful
SHOWTIME DVD title to date and continues to be one of the top selling
titles for the network on iTunes.
John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, Clyde Phillips and Charles H. Eglee serve
as executive producers for season three. Michael C. Hall, Scott Buck and
Melissa Rosenberg serve as co-executive producers for season three.
