“We’re excited to expand our relationship with Netflix’s premium service with this groundbreaking SHOWTIME series,” said Scott Koondel, Chief Corporate Content Licensing Officer, CBS Corporation.  “SHOWTIME has created one of the signature programming brands on television, and this agreement for ‘Dexter’ further demonstrates the value of this content in the marketplace while expanding the show’s passionate fan base to a whole new online audience.”


I'm going to give you my own personal opinion...you can really stop watching after season 4. The series definitely peaks then, and seems to become a little repetitive, and predictable. I know you're not going to listen to me, and end up watching more, so I have to say this. Skip the last episode. If you find yourself watching the last episode, DO NOT WATCH the last 3-4 minutes. For real. You'll only end up with anger in your heart.

The first 4 seasons though, the show was fantastic, fresh, and fun.
