‘Dexter’ Going Back To The Basics

Sometimes, when a show gets popular, it makes the mistake of changing a lot of the stuff that made the show popular in the first place – like when they started giving all the good storylines to Po on “Teletubbies.” Who wanted more Po? Not me.

So it is with “Dexter” starring Michael C. Hall, but Showtime president David Nevins has some good news for the fans, which I’m sure is totally true and not at all a piece of marketing hype:

Dexter this season will be in some ways a return to the Dexter that you’ve seen in the early seasons. There’s a really interesting story and journey that he’s going to be on this year. There’s going to be some degree of getting back to his roots.”

I remember when they said the same thing about”24.” Here are more Nevinsisms about the future of”Dexter,” including the increased emphasis on Dexter‘s sibling relationship, and season 6′s lack of a singular villain:

“There will be a microscope on the Deb/Dexter relationship this season. Over time you’re going to see that relationship evolve and change, no questions about it.”

“It is not one big bad. There’s one interesting story that will move through the season, and it will be cast very interestingly, but it’s not exactly that one person.”

Well, there you have it. Are you excited for the sixth season of “Dexter” yet? You better be – I hear David Nevins had something of a bloodthirsty gleam in his eyes when he made these remarks. (TVLine)
