One of the more beloved premium cable shows, Dexter, is making a triumphant return to Netflix—and all eight seasons will be included. As part of a new deal between CBS and Netflix, the serial-killer drama, which chronicled the life of Dexter Morgan as he dealt out vigilante justice, will be available for instant-streaming starting Thursday, Oct. 31.
