“Dexter” on Showtime
Along with the preview clips of the upcoming second episode of “Dexter” Season 6 we posted earlier today, we now have three behind-the-scenes videos that include (i) writer and showrunner Scott Buck discussing Dexter’s spiritual search , (ii) the cast and crew discussing creating the Joe Walker kill room, and (iii) the writers discussing creating each season’s big bad; a fourth video of cast members answering fan questions posted on Facebook and Twitter; and an update on prospects of the hit drama going to a seventh season.
Let’s start with the Season 7 update. According to Deadline negotiations between “Dexter” star Michael C. Hall and Showtime have broken down. Hall’s contract for Dexter is up after the current sixth season, which is about to wrap production. He has been negotiating with Showtime for a while, but talks [apparently] broke down after the two sides couldn’t bridge a $4 million gap in proposed salary for a new deal, with Showtime offering $20 million for two more seasons and Hall’s team asking for $24 million. Either figure would make Hall one of the highest paid actors in cable. Sources indicate that the network brass remain hopeful about reaching a deal, with signing Hall for one more season vs. two also an option. Hall jumped on “Dexter” immediately after finishing “Six Feet Under”, and after working on a TV series for ten straight years, the actor has been looking to do other things, including a Broadway musical.
