"The series is bigger than it's ever been in its sixth season, both in terms of audience and its impact on the cultural landscape," Showtime president David Nevins said in a statement. "Together with Michael, the creative team on the show has a very clear sense of where they intend to take the show over the next two seasons and, as a huge fan, I'm excited to watch the story of Dexter Morgan play out."

Last month, it was reported that negotiations between Hall and the network had hit a snag. Showtime reportedly offered the actor $20 million, but Hall wanted $24 million. The two sides were able to bridge the gap, according to Deadline. No details were provided.
