For better or for worse, Netflix and CBS worked out a deal to bring all eight seasons of Showtime’s Dexter to Netflix.
Beginning on Halloween (Oct 31, 2013), the first four seasons of the award-winning series will be available to watch instantly; seasons 5-8 will begin on Jan 1, 2014.
Starring Golden Globe winning actor Michael C. Hall, Dexter tells the story of Dexter Morgan, America’s favorite serial killer. As a Miami forensics expert, he spends his days solving crimes, and nights committing them. But Dexter lives by a strict code of honor that is both his saving grace and lifelong burden.
Dexter came to an end on Showtime last night and everyone has something to say about the series finale.
In my opinion, as a longtime Dexter viewer from the beginning, I thought it was garbage. Inconsistent, sloppy and silly, the show went out with a whimper instead of the bang it deserved.
Characters were unceremoniously sent off without a proper farewell…and that Masuka/daughter thing? What the hell was that and where did it lead? Nowhere.
E! spoke with Clyde Philips, showrunner on the series. His term took him through to the end of the Trinity killer storyline which is, arguably, the last “good” season of Dexter.
The BloodCast officially welcomes Clarke Wolfe as its co-host!
As Wolfe and co-host Ryan Turek make the transition into a promising future for the podcast, they use this episode to riff on topics such as The Wolfman remake, Tobe Hooper’s Poltergeist and why it remains one of the best haunted house films.
They also delve into their thoughts on the upcoming remake or reboot (whatever you want to call it), this week’s episode of Dexter, True Blood, Breaking Bad (holy crap!), and more.

Paramount and CBS Home Entertainment have revealed plans for its Dexter: The Complete Series Collection, arriving on DVD and Blu-ray November 5th.
The complete series includes all eight acclaimed seasons in an ultra-collectible recreation of the actual blood slide box used by Dexter Morgan to catalog his victims on the show. Also designed and included specifically for this collection, ‘Grafix: The Art of Dexter’ is a collection of photography, fan artwork and iconography and images used in the series’ cutting edge promotional campaigns.
It was a fond farewell to Showtime’s acclaimed drama Dexter to close out the Hall H festivities at Comic-Con on Thursday.
The cast, which wrapped the last episode of its eighth and final season just last week, was tight-lipped about how the series would end, although speculation remains high that the body count will go up. That’s not much of a stretch given that over half of the eight actors on the panel had already met their doom.
The closest anyone came to spilling the beans regarding the rest of the final season, which is currently airing on Showtime, was Yvonne Strahovski, who plays Hanna McKay.
Comic-Con is nearly upon us and, for this episode, The BloodCast’s Ryan Turek along with guest Clarke Wolfe look at what hot TV shows are heading to the San Diego event.
And, as you know, The BloodCast veers wildly off topic, so expect a discussion about the works of Wes Craven, an assessment of Under the Dome and Dexter and more!
