LOS ANGELES — America's favorite serial killer, Michael C. Hall of the hit TV show Dexter, says he is undergoing treatment for cancer. But good news for now: The disease is in remission, according to a spokesman.

"I feel fortunate to have been diagnosed with an imminently treatable and curable condition, and I thank my doctors and nurses for their expertise and care," Hall, 38, said Wednesday in a statement.

According to AP: "The actor has been diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system, which is part of the body's immune system. The disease is considered highly treatable with the potential for full recovery.

"Hall plans to attend Sunday's Golden Globe awards and the upcoming Screen Actors Guild ceremony with his wife, actress Jennifer Carpenter, who plays his sister on Showtime's Dexter. Hall is a nominee at both awards shows for his role as Dexter Morgan, a serial killer working as a blood-spatter expert.

"Hall will return to production on the drama's fifth season later this year."
