Dexter Producer Comments on Show Extension, Jimmy Smits

by at . Comments

As previously reported, Dexter has been picked up for two more seasons.

Executive producer Clyde Phillips told E! Online that the news was "really a sign of affirmation for us."

He then went on to heap praise on Jimmy Smits for his work this season:

"I have to tell you, when Jimmy and [Michael C. Hall] do a scene, we all go down and watch just because it's like watching two amazing actors on a stage. As far as we're concerned, when we're sitting in the editing room, those guys are winning Emmys everyday," he said.

So, will Smits will be hanging around beyond this season?

"We only have a deal with him at the moment for this season," Phillips said. "We just got the pickup news this morning, so now we can start planning what to do for the next two seasons."

Dexter Quotes

I love Halloween. The one time of year when everyone wears a mask... not just me. People think it's fun to pretend you're a monster. Me, I spend my life pretending I'm not. Brother, friend, boyfriend - All part of my costume collection. Some people might call me a fraud. Let's see if it will fit. I prefer to think of myself as a master of disguise.

There are no secrets in life, just hidden truths that lie beneath the surface.
