Everyone Looks Less Orange In 'Dexter' Season 8 Trailer

The end begins Sunday, June 30th. Several teasers later, we now have an official look at the eighth and final season of Dexter. From the look of things, Dexter's been getting the cold shoulder from his sister who has chosen the comforts of awesome sex and recreational drugs over eating steaks with her creepy murderer brother who wears a lot of peach. Meanwhile, everyone in Miami who is not a homicide detective are suspicious that Dexter may be the Bay Harbor Butcher making it more and more difficult for him to track down and eliminate whoever is going around town removing people's brains. All in all, the once creepy show looks much more palatable. By that, I mean at least they've scaled back on the bronzer from last season.

A Look At The New Blood In 'Dexter' Season Six

Damn you, Dexter. You've pulled me back in. This behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming season of Dexter-season-five-killer-details/" target="_blank">Dexter gives us a preview of who the players will be. We've got Edward James Olmos and Colin Hanks as a creepy religion professor and his creepier disciple. It's not clear what their plans are but we can see that it involves big knives and the name of God. That's a bad combo. Also, joining this season is Mos (formerly Mos Def) as Brother Sam. At first he' Dexter's target before a common interest reveals itself. Miami Metro is bringing in a moody new detective played by Billy Brown. He's a no-nonsense Chicago native who sees working homicide as a business and doesn't have time for department hijinks or detectives dressing like members of Smashmouth. Boy, he picked the wrong town. And then there's Aimee Garcia, who plays Batista's hot sister and new nanny to Harrison. More importantly, she can be seen in a scene with Deb saying, "I came in here to give you a kiss goodnight. Not to look at pictures of dead bodies." A) Fire that nanny. B) Is Deb in a same-sex relationship this season? Or perhaps a polyamorous couple?? I can so see Quinn being into that. The new season of Dexter premieres October 2nd on Showtime.


You Can Watch The Season Premiere Of 'Dexter' Online For Free

Click here to do so... Showtime is continuing its programming model of putting the first episodes of its original series online in their entirety for free with the season 8 premiere of Dexter. It's a bold move, but one that I guess has worked for Showtime in the past. The episode must be pretty good stuff, since they're hoping it will make you want to watch the rest of the season. You can see it for yourself above. And subsequent episodes can be seen on Showtime Sunday nights at 9 PM EST/PST.


Showtime Gives Us A Teaser For Season 8 Of 'Dexter'

Spoiler alert: He's going to live a double life!!! I'm not able to presume too much here without giving away some significant season 7 spoilers, and I just invented a policy where I won't spoil anything that happened in the previous season until the first episode of the next one airs. You know, for the sake of the Netflixers and bootleggers and procrastinators at large. Anyway, Dexter, Deb, etc. This is rumored to be the final season, but seeing as how last season was the first one in a while that wasn't terrible, I wouldn't rule out a season 9 or later.


The Bodies Pile Up In 'Dexter' Season 7 Trailer

Featuring the Deftones. In the past few seasons, Dexter has lost the quality level that defined it and made the early years so much fun to watch. But there's hope yet for season seven. For one, the plot is likely to be more interesting because SPOILER we'll see how Dexter reacts now that Deb is on to him and his secret life. Secondly, they used the Deftones in the trailer. That deserves our watching the first three episodes at least. They've earned that much.


'Dexter' Has Some 'Splaining To Do In Bloody Season 7 Teaser

It's not that Deb's mad. Just really disappointed... For those not up-to-date with Showtime's Dexter, read no further. SPOILERS AHEAD. Are you gone? Okay. At the end of last season, Dexter was revealed to be a martian. Now, with the government hot on heels he must hide with a suburban family and constantly wrestle with his lust for cat meat. Are you really gone now? Okay. Actual SPOILERS. Season six of Dexter ended with Deb discovering her brother murdering the Doomsday Killer in his macabre ritual. This season, we'll see how both Dexter and Deb deal with his secret being in the open. This teaser plays up that angle rather than focusing on Batista's midlife crisis and his purchase of a vintage muscle car. I think they made the right move. Dexter returns September 30th with Ray Stevenson and Yvonne Strahovski joining the cast.


‘Dexter’ Season 6 Promo Reminds Us Of Fonder Times

It completely forgets season 5 existed. Remember the last season of"Dexter?" Yeah, I don't really either. The guy from Trainspotting was in it, right? This new promo for season 6 of the Showtime series doesn't seem to remember it either. It concentrates wholly on the big bads in seasons 1-5, and seems to promise we can expect the same in the upcoming season. Praise the TV gods! Let's get Dexter back on the right track, chasing down one truly disturbing, horrific killer as opposed to five "meh" guys with a shared partnership in a sex dungeon. Huh, I guess I do remember season 5. But I promise, only the sex parts. What do we think of the promo? Excited?


'Dexter's' Dark Passenger Has An Announcement

Dexter Morgan and Showtime would like you to know that the new season is not going to suck. Dexter Morgan and Showtime would like you to know that the new season is not going to suck as much as last. After a shaky fifth season, Dexter is back to his old self and that doesn't just mean a renewed interest in Pearl Jam. It also means killing Mos Def and Colin Hanks. I love the show and am ready for a return to form, but it bodes poorly that the new promo is essentially a direct rip-off of the "Teen Wolf" promo that has been airing everywhere these past few months.


'Dexter In 60 Seconds' Saves You A LOT Of Time

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? If you're like me, you have no real tolerance for Showtime's"Dexter." It's not bad, it's not great, but it can be VERY grating. I think the show would be a lot more palatable if it was 1 minute long, and so does Landline.tv, who produced this absolutely spot on parody of the serial-killer-who-kills-serial-killers-series (say that even ONE time fast). Why slog through four seasons of this show when you can get the gist in the same time it takes to make rice in the microwave? (Warming Glow)
