In the title coordination polymer, [CdI2(C12H12N2)]n, the Cd2+ ion lies on a twofold rotation axis: it is six-coordinated in a distorted cis-CdN2I4 octahedral geometry by two N atoms from a chelating 5,5′-dimethyl-2,2′-bipyridine ligands and four bridging iodide anions. The bridging function of the iodide ions leads to a chain structure propagating in .
