No, they’re not going to stop him before he kills again.
Answering the question that’s been on a lot of viewers' minds this fall, Showtime yesterday renewed “Dexter,” its drama about a serial killer with a conscience, for Seasons 7 and 8, after reaching a deal with star Michael C. Hall to return for two more 12-episode seasons.
Counting the various ways people watch (live, On Demand, in replays and on DVR) the show’s averaging about 5 million viewers a week, making this its most-watched season yet, according to Showtime.
And, yes, ratings do sometimes trump common sense, for those of you wondering just how long a guy who kills people he thinks need killing can go on without getting caught or degenerating into a less-than-sympathetic character.
But will it eventually be played out? And how?
I guess we’ll have to stay tuned.
