Michael C. Hall’s Salary Jeapordizes ‘Dexter’ Season 7

Michael C. Hall talked up Dexter’s season 6 all summer and we glued ourselves to the television Sunday night for the premiere, making it the highest rated in the show’s history. Only one episode in and the drama is high both on screen… and off.

E! Online’s inside sources have reported that Hall is still negotiating his salary with Showtime for a potential season 7. If these two don’t play nice, our favorite serial killer might not live past the current season!

But Hall, seen here in Venice, Ca., is no stranger to difficult battles, so let’s hope that he and Showtime will move past this stalemate and give us another season… or two.
