'Til the end of time!

OK, fine, that's just our wishful thinking. But Showtime has renewed Dexter for a seventh and eight season (season six is currently airing), and as uberfans we see this as a sign that Dexter Morgan still will be Saran-Wrapping his prey when he's old and grey and stalking via walker. Count on it.

Last month, reports surfaced that Michael C. Hall's contract negotiations had hit a stalemate, and the fate of Dexter was in jeopardy. According to Deadline, Showtime had offered M.C.H. $20 million for two more seasons, but the star wanted $24 million. No word yet on what number they reached, but thankfully they were able to iron out the details.

Dexter has been holding strong in the ratings: The season six premiere was the show's highest-rated premiere ever, drawing 2.2 million viewers. That's a 24 percent bump up from season five.

Anyone else looking forward to Dexter: The Golden Years? Or do you think two more seasons will be enough?
