Michael C. Hall Signing New Deal for More Dexter After Season 6; How Much Longer Can the Series Go?

It’s hard to believe that a weekly series about a serial killer is entering its sixth season, but that’s where we stand with Dexter. Hall’s contract is up after season 6, which seems like a natural stopping point for a show with a finite premise. However, Dexter is the centerpiece of Showtime’s lineup, and the network isn’t ready to let go anytime soon. According to Variety, Hall is in negotiations for a new deal beyond season six. It is not clear how many more seasons Showtime wants from Hall, but they will have to pay for the privilege. Hall became an executive producer in season four, which granted him a share in ancillary revenues like DVD sales and merchandising, so his yearly income is already very large. To extend the contract will require a major pay raise, though of course Hall deserves every penny (at least relative to the million-dollar negotiations of television). The drama would be nothing without Hall. Who else could sell that ironic narration?

Considering the subject matter I think it can go on for some time. I happen to love this show. The only thing is that he is going to get caught some day and that's when he'll die or go to prison so that's how they will end the show when they decide to end it.

I wouldn't be surprised if another Serial Killer, with somewhat similar type of ideology ends up killing him. It would be a pretty nice twist.. Either Way its an awesome show.
