We hit the "Evening with Dexter" event last night, which was hosted by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences at their Leonard H. Goldenson Theater in North Hollywood, California, to see the cast and crew chat about the show and take in a preview screening of "That Night, a Forest Grew," the next episode (which includes a scene between Dexter and Doakes that will make you jump out of your seat shouting, "Holy s--t!"), but we unexpectedly came away with some excellent news!
When the panel moderator, Us Weekly critic and friend of WWK John Griffiths, asked the assembled actors and producers about the likelihood of a pickup for season three, they immediately turned to the crowd and punted the question to one particularly influential audience member: Showtime president Robert Greenblatt. Greenblatt, bless him, immediately shouted his response with absolutely no hesitation and lots of enthusiasm: "Yes!" Woo-hoo!
We'll see you all there! In the meantime, check back for Monday's chat for more Dextery goodness!
