Netflix and Showtime parent company CBS have signed a deal to make all eight seasons of the recently ended Dexter available for streaming. The first four seasons of the show will start streaming in the U.S. starting on October 31, and seasons five through eight will be available on January 1, 2014.

Dexter just wrapped up its eighth and final season on September 22. “We’re thrilled to have Dexter, one of Showtime’s highest-rated shows, on Netflix, and so quickly after it completed its record-breaking run,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer, said in a statement.

CBS used to make a bunch of Showtime shows — including Dexter, in fact — available for streaming on Netflix, but in 2011 it pulled them from the service in the U.S. The renewed availability of Dexter suggests that CBS is open to licensing these shows again but may do so one by one.

    Awesome!

  2. Great! It’s time to start watching.

  3. The first four seasons were wonderful. Afterwards it was not able to recuperate. But when it was good, it was good. Surely a grand coup for Netflix!

    Wonderful post and Happy Fandom!

  4. Great now I can quit purchasing the seasons on dvd!

  5. Thank You Netflix! Great acquisition! I don’t know the terms of the deal but I hope it is on Netflix for years to come. I know “Dexter” was on Netflix before but the previous deal expired in summer 2011. I hope more fans watch this show, its a really great show. You will find yourself “addicted” before the first season is over, and its very deep.

  6. Love this!!! After seeing the end of season four on Netflix I am shocked!!! Awesome show and I cannot wait to see seasons 5 thru 8!!!
