"When it debuted in 2006, 'Dexter' redefined the genre, by taking the anti-hero to new heights and pushing the boundaries of the television landscape," said Matthew C.

"'Dexter' paved the way for the next generation of award-winning hit Showtime series, and its cultural impact will be felt for years to come."
