Showtime officially renews Dexter

Showtime has made it official: Dexter will be renewed for a sixth season:

“DEXTER is the best suspense drama on television,” said David Nevins, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks. “To grow its audience so significantly in its fifth season is an enormous accomplishment by this amazing cast and crew. This is the easiest decision I’ve made since I got to Showtime.”

The renewal comes as last week’s episode — the 11/28–numbers for last night’s episode are not yet available — delivering the second-highest ratings ever for the series: 2.537M viewers, 1.1/3 A18-49 rating/share.

Dexter season five is currently averaging 1.942M viewers and a 0.9/2 A18-49 rating/share and is on pace to post its highest-rated season ever.
