'Dexter' Future Uncertain As Michael C. Hall, Showtime Hit Contract Stalemate
 

 
EXCLUSIVE: Showtime’s flagship drama Dexter opened its sixth season on Sunday with a stellar 2.2 million viewers, up 24% from last year to mark the hit series’ highest-rated premiere ever and Showtime’s best original series opener in at least 14 years. But the prospects of the hit drama going to a seventh season are now uncertain as negotiations between Dexter star Michael C. Hall and Showtime have broken down. I hear that the two sides reached an impasse yesterday, the same day Dexter‘s big Season 6 premiere ratings came out. Hall’s contract for Dexter is up after the current sixth season, which is about to wrap production. He has been negotiating with Showtime for a while, but I hear talks broke down after the two sides couldn’t bridge a $4 million gap in proposed salary for a new deal, with Showtime offering $20 million for two more seasons and Hall’s team asking for $24 million. Either figure would make Hall one of the highest-paid actors in cable. Sources indicate that the network brass remain hopeful about reaching a deal, with signing Hall for one more season vs. two also an option. Hall jumped on Dexter immediately after finishing Six Feet Under and, after working on a TV series for 10 straight years, the actor had been looking to do other things, including a Broadway musical. He won a Golden Globe for his role on Dexter last year.

If season 6 goes well, I'd love for 2 more seasons. If 6 is so-so, do one more and go out with a fu*king bang.

Literally the only show I watch on Showtime and I'm sure I'm not the only one. They would be absolutely stupid not to pay him.

Funny how this sh*t happens... He was a nobody before Dexter and still basically is, what else has he done worth mentioning? But anyways, he would have given his left nut to be in this show 6 years ago and now he is nitpicking over 4 million dollars when they are willing to give him 20.

I would tell him smd and off him this season and have him pass the torch to his sister or kid. The show is basically done. Nobody is believing a serial k!ller that works for the cops is going to get away with all this for 8+ years. Show is just comical at this point.
You're actually the only moron who believes ANY of this

Michael C. Hall was one of the best actors in one of the greatest televlsion dramas of all time for five years before Dexter. It was called Six Feet Under. If you've never seen it, perhaps you should watch it. If you have seen it, and you're still going to make such asinine comments, then perhaps you should shut the fu*k up.

And let's not pretend like Michael C. Hall isn't the reason for this show's continued success. The supporting cast is a snooze and the writing has, more or less, gone to the toilet. Hall IS the reason that Dexter is still a success.



Just drop the Mic and say thank you we love you. The show is over the curtains are coming down. Nothing else is left to be said

Yes showtime has better shows to me right now than HBO. And I used to only watch HBO shows and they have stepped their game up.

Sorry, I had to stop you right there. You have no clue what you're talking about. The Sopranos was already 2 seasons deep before Six Feet Under started. If it wasn't for the success of the Sopranos a show like Six Feet Under would have never been given the green light, FACT.
Actually, not a fact, as the script, casting, directors, etc, would have taken more than two years to get ready. Six Feet Under wasn't given the "green light" because of Sopranos. How many times do you want to get schooled in one thread. I'd just stay away from this thread all together. You've already missed once, now twice, why try to make it three times?
