Showrunner Scott Buck gives us a rundown of the upcoming, hopefully awesome sixth season.
Dexter Morgan and Showtime would like you to know that the new season is not going to suck.
Remember the name Brea Grant. Or not, you can always look it up later.
Meet Miamo Metro’s newest detective.
Dexter, scarring his cheek will only be redundant.
Trejo joins “Sons of Anarchy,” Def joins “Dexter,” and I join The Intrigued Club.
I have always viewed Colins Hanks as more of a “murder victim” than “murder committer.” Maybe he charms his victims to death.
It completely forgets season 5 existed.
This means more Dee Dee and not so much Mandark.
He’s starring in ‘Peep World’ this weekend and returning to ‘Dexter’ soon.
Why slog through five seasons of ‘Dexter’ when you can get the gist in the same time it takes to make rice in the microwave?
This is a touchy subject whenever I bring it up around here, but “Dexter” is an uneven show. Now, Scott Buck is ready to wash the turd-like taste of Season Five out of our mouths.
Good news for people who like serial killers and ridiculous plots (I kid because I love). Showtime has renewed “Dexter” for its sixth season.
I'm providing this for all you folks who are unfortunate enough to have to steal cable from a person who doesn't subscribe to Showtime. The first episode of the new season of "Dexter" may have moved slower than some prefer, but I guarantee you it's setting up awesome stuff to come. I've seen through episode three. You won't be disappointed. Let me know what you think in the comments section.
The print campaign for "Dexter" has always been eye-grabbing and awesome, and the new poster art for season five does not disappoint either. We already reported that the new season will follow in the footsteps of The Karate Kid 2, Halloween 2, and the Back To The Future sequels by picking up right where the action ended last season. Looks like this poster is doing the same. So much for spoiler warnings. This baby will soon be seen on billboards, bus stops, subway platforms, baseball stadiums, tramp stamps, magazines, banner ads, and the lunchboxes of the criminally insane.
This new "Dexter" promo trumps the "Blue's Clues" style one we posted last week. It doesn't give away too much, unless you're naughty and haven't caught up on last season. If that's the case, leave the office right now and camp out in front of your TV all day. Then when you're finished, come back and watch this promo. It'll get you totally amped for next season, as Dexter is in for a world of sh*t. It's going to be fascinating to watch him deal with the spoiler that I can't discuss because you've got more important things to do than stay up to date on one of the best shows on television.
"Dexter" returns September 26th on Showtime.
Check out the promo after the jump…
Dexter's world literally turns upside down in this new promo where Michael C. Hall moves into a spacious fully-furnished cement mixer with an ocean view. The new season premieres with Dexter squaring off against Robo-Cop on Sunday, September 26th at 9pm so expect the Showtime hype-machine to go into overdrive. Dexter on buses, billboards, and on magazines. Just don't expect to see any ads on Awesome Husband and Dad Quarterly.
Have a look at the lazily green-screened promo after the jump…
We finally have a look at the fifth season of "Dexter" and it looks crazy. I don't want to spoil too much for those ignant enough to have not checked out the show yet, but I will say the fourth season finale left the series at an inspired crossroads. Here we have two looks at the new season that pick up exactly where season four left off with Dexter experiencing guilt for the first time in his life. No sign of Robocop or Julia Stiles in these promos, just a whole lot of gut-wrenching drama. On Sunday, September 26th at 9PM, I plan on shrink-wrapping myself to the couch as to not miss a single second of the highly-anticipated premiere on Showtime.
Get your first look after the jump…
Dexter Morgan is an unstoppable killing machine. And what better way to fight an unstoppable killing machine than with America's favorite insatiable law-and-order cyborg? No, not Vincent D'Onofrio.Peter Weller, the star of the classic 80's sci-fi film Robocop has joined the cast of "Dexter: Season 5." According to Dread Central, he will appear in eight episodes, and will play a "troubled" Miami Metro police officer, as if there's any other kind.While there's no mention of the character of Robocop, I'd be surprised if they didn't use him in some capacity. The show never came right out and said that John Lithgow was supposed to be the character of Dr. Dick Solomon from "3rd Rock from the Sun." But once he dropped the C-Bomb at Thanksgiving dinner, everyone knew it was him.
The Saturn Awards brought Screen Junkies some great T.V. scoops last night, including additional details on the fifth season of "Dexter." James Remar, who plays Dexter's dead father Harry and constant subconcious reminder of "The Code," stopped on the red carpet to discuss what's in store for the sympathetic serial killer. We've previously reported on plot and casting details for the upcoming season, but how will Harry help Dexter get through these troubled times, and keep him from sliding off the deep end? Or I suppose the DEEP deep end, since he kind of already murders people. GET THE HARRY DETAILS AFTER THE JUMP…
Yesterday we gave you news that Julie Benz would be returning to the fifth season of "Dexter." And today we have more big casting news. But you gotta pay. Only the first hit's free. So go ahead and give me all your money and — oops. I spilled the beans in the headline, didn't I? FUUUUUUUUUUUU**!!! What's that, Ausiello?Sources confirm to me exclusively that Julia Stiles is in advanced talks to play a major, top secret role in the show’s upcoming fifth season. There's no word yet on who Stiles will play. According to showrunner Chip Johannessen she won't play a serial-killing rival to Dexter. “We’re not going to have a single Big Bad this season. We don’t want to try and top John Lithgow, so we’re going to change up the forces that Dexter’s going to be dealing with.” My theory is that she'll play a cat-faced FBI Agent who discovers Dexter's murderous secrets.
Welcome back.**SPOLER ALERT: DON'T READ FURTHER UNTIL YOU'VE WATCHED THE FOURTH SEASON OF 'DEXTER'**Turns out that Julie Benz will return for the new season of "Dexter." Aussiello got the scoop that Benz will reprise her role in the season premiere despite the fact that Rita's blood is now on the outside of her. Though everyone's being tight-lipped about how she will return.As she told us a few months back, Sara Colleton reaffirmed that Rita won't be brought back as a ghost a la Dexter's father, “We reserve those for Harry. If you have too many things like that it becomes gimmicky.”I hear what she's saying. It's like when "RoboCop: The Series" introduced that hologram-ghost as a recurring character. Totally pulled me out of the tightly-woven narrative.
I'm not ready to say goodbye to this picture.Entertainment Weekly has new details about the fifth season of Dexter in the latest issue. If you're not caught up with the show, there are SPOILERS AHEAD. Bold and all caps. My ass is covered.It looks like Dexter will be packing up the kids and returning to his old bachelor pad to crash with Deb in the new season. Suburbia never really felt right and dropping deuces where his wife was murdered doesn't really appeal either. New showrunner Chip Johannessen had this to say about the new living situation, “It’s partially funny and partially not. Deb is not exactly the most maternal person. Nobody quite knows what they’re doing, so there’s a certain kind of struggle to cope.” In other words, these kids would be better off left in the woods to fend for themselves.The interesting story detail however pertains to the investigation of Rita's murder. Neither the police nor the FBI believe Trinity was responsible and consider Dexter the prime suspect. If Nancy Grace has taught me anything, it's usually the spouse in these cases. Especially the ones that play with blood for a living.
The season four finale of Dexter knocked the wind out of us and made me want to punch John Lithgow (something I swore I'd never do). Though it also served to reinvigorate a slumping storyline. So we were more than eager to chat with executive producer Sara Colleton when we caught up with her on the red carpet at PaleyFest 2010. If you're not caught up on the series, stop reading now as there are SPOILERS AHEAD. Here's what she told us we can expect in the new season.Dexter's not really one to wear his heart on his sleeve. What can we expect as he learns how to grieve?He is going to have to deal with a lot of feelings that he's never felt before, so it'll be interesting. He's going to approach it all, we hope, in a way that is unique and feels authentic to the audience. You'll see him go through all of those things and it will be different. I don't want to telegraph exactly what we're going to do because we want to present what anyone would be going through in that situation in a very unique Dexter-like way.SEE WHAT ELSE COLLETON HAD TO SAY, INCLUDING NEWS ABOUT THE SEASON'S BIG BAD, AFTER THE JUMP…
Courtney Ford is one hot little number. She's been starring as reporter Christine in this season of Dexter, and she's been nakey a lot of the time. Niiiice. She's also married to Superman Brandon Routh, but I don't think anyone's intimated by that.A word from Courtney: "Oh my gosh, I hear theories every day!"Me too! Let's get together to discuss them. Drinks then dinner? Pick you up at 7? Lock Superman in a closet or something.
I don't want to ruin last week's episode of Dexter by telling you everyone dies in it, so I'll just say it was the best episode in a stellar season of the show about a domesticated serial killer. Fact: John Lithgow makes everything better. If you're not watching Dexter you need to start RIGHT NOW. Okay…go! Here are a couple clips to settle the monster down inside of you that can't wait until Sunday's new episode.
Bryan Singer is in talks to bring a big screen version of Battlestar Galactica to theaters. Originally he was set to develop the television series reboot in 2001 but was c-blocked by the Taliban. The gig later went to Ron Moore and the rest is history. No word yet on the creative direction of the feature but let's hope it wraps up a little tighter than the new series did. I find it kind of odd that Universal is already rebooting a franchise that practically just completed its successful run. If this is the new norm, can we get a do-over on Transformers 2?
