Dexter may have exited airwaves this year, but Showtime’s serial about a serial killer cop is getting a new lease on life when all eight seasons arrive on Netflix. The first four seasons arrive on Halloween, with the following seasons expected by January 1st, 2014 — two drops perfectly timed with mass video consumption around national holidays. Smart! Looks like Showtime’s Anytime app isn’t the only streaming option anymore.
The announcement is the latest in a long line of partnerships Netflix arranged with various content owners and creators, from the folks behind Damages to Disney. And that’s to say nothing of the company’s recent in-roads on original content creation: House of Cards, Orange is the New Black and Arrested Development are but a few recent hits in that department. Call us crazy, but we expect even more content announcements from Netflix before the holidays kick into full swing.
