Michael C Hall Dexter Contract The future of 'Dexter' is in jeopardy.

According to Deadline, Showtime's long-running serial killer drama may come to a close all because of money.

Contract talks between the network and series star Michael C. Hall reportedly broken down on the same day as the strong 'Dexter' Season 6 premiere ratings posted.

With repeat airings included, the 'Dexter' Season 6 premiere was watched by about a total of 2.8 million viewers. It was the highest season opener for the network in 14 years.

Negotiations between Hall and Showtime have been ongoing, but the talks are rumored to have broken down over the $4 million gap in new salary deal. Hall's team is asking for $24 million for two more seasons of 'Dexter' while Showtime is offering $20 million for two additional years. The contract dispute won't affect Season 6.

As an alternative, there's an option for Hall to do one more season as opposed to two.

Hall won a Golden Globe for 'Dexter' and has been nominated for four Emmys for the role.

Below, check out a clip from the 'Dexter' Season 6 premiere:
