Before Netflix Instant became the streaming giant it is today, the first two seasons of Showtime’s serial killer drama series “Dexter” were available to stream, but none of the following seasons were ever made available through Netflix outside of the DVD mailing service. But that all changes this Halloween.
Netflix and CBS have announced a new agreement that is bringing all eight seasons of the hit series to Netflix in the United States beginning this Thursday, October 31st. The first four seasons will be made available on All Hallow’s Eve, while the last four seasons will arrive on January 1st, 2014 to kick off a bloody new year.
This comes just after the series came to an end this past summer, and while many fans seemed to be fairly disappointed in the outcome (maybe because the final season of “Breaking Bad” was vastly superior), this will allow a whole new audience who doesn’t pay for Showtime to find the series.
For those who aren’t familiar with it, “Dexter” follows Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall), a Miami forensics expert who spends his days solving crimes, and his nights committing them. But Dexter lives by a strict code of honor that is both his saving grace and lifelong burden. Torn between his deadly compulsion and his desire for true happiness, Dexter is a man in profound conflict with the world and himself.
The series also stars Jennifer Carpenter, James Remar, David Zayas, C.S. Lee, Julie Benz and features some great guest stars like John Lithgow, Jimmy Smits, Colin Hanks, Edward James Olmos, Julia Stiles, Yvonne Strahovski and many more. They don’t all make it to the end, but you’ll have to watch the show to see who survives. “Dexter” had its ups and downs throughout the series, but when the show was good, it was really good. It’s definitely worth watching, so make sure you give it a shot when it hits Netflix this week.
