Just in time for Halloween — and two days after Ted Sarandos’ throwdown with theater owners — Netflix has struck a deal with CBS to stream Showtime‘s serial killer drama Dexter. The first four seasons will be available for instant viewing starting October 31, with Seasons 5-8 following on January 1. Dexter‘s series finale wrapped up in September drawing record ratings for Showtime. “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,” said Sarandos. The Halloween debut invites binge viewing on a Thursday leading into the moviegoing weekend. Will Ender’s Game, Free Birds, and Last Vegas fall victim to Dexter Morgan?
