It looks like TV's favorite serial-killer-of-serial-killers will be pretty busy for the forseeable future. Showtime has renewed 'Dexter' for two more 12-episode seasons, after the network agreed to a contract extension with star Michael C. Hall.

Contract talks between Hall and Showtime reportedly stalled in October, the day after the Season 6 premiere of 'Dexter' aired to series-record ratings. But now that the two sides have come to terms, Hall is thrilled to be staying with the show. "On behalf of the entire 'Dexter' family, we relish the invitation to delve ever deeper into Dexter's world," he said in a statement.

"'Dexter''s enormous success is a real tribute to the great achievements of its cast, producers, and the powerhouse performance of Michael C. Hall," David Nevins, Showtime's President of Entertainment said. "The series is bigger than it's ever been in its sixth season, both in terms of audience and its impact on the cultural landscape. Together with Michael, the creative team on the show has a very clear sense of where they intend to take the show over the next two seasons and, as a huge fan, I'm excited to watch the story of Dexter Morgan play out."

Season 6 of Dexter has featured guest-stars Edward James Olmos and Colin Hanks as the Doomsday Killers, twisted religious zealots who carry out grotesque murders in hopes of bringing about the apocalypse.
