Oh man is tonight a busy TV night. My DVR will be working overtime to record the season premieres of the Emmy winning Outstanding Drama Homeland’s second season, along with the return of Once Upon a Time, now with 100% more magic in present day, and the show that I anticipate most week to week, Dexter. Spoilers will follow on Dexter‘s shocking season 6 finale. You sir, have been warned.

When we last left our favorite vigilante serial killer Dexter, he was literally caught red handed by his sister (and police lieutenant) Debra. For six seasons we have seen him do everything in his power to avoid this moment, lying, pitting the blame on others, and even killing to protect his secret. What will he do now that he has been exposed? And what will she do? I’m sure the wounds that Dexter’s serial killer brother left on Debra in season 1 will resurface as she battles with herself about turning him in or not. This is just the sorta twist that the show needed to stay fresh and after season six split the audience with love and hate (I personally loved it), the show might have a lot it needs to prove to old fans.

The series costars Michael C Hall, Jennifer Carpenter, Lauren Velez, Desmond Harrington, James Remar, and David Zayas. Joining them this season will be special guest stars including Yvonne Strahovski from Chuck, and Ray Stevenson from Punisher: War Zone. Tune in tonight on Showtime at 9pm if you subscribe. If not, there are a lot of other shows for you to check out tonight.

Dexter is not only one of the best shows on television (with a Best Drama Emmy Nomination to prove it), but it also has one of the most clever advertising campaigns every season also. Zap2It has a new article showcasing all of the posters revealed at Comic-Con, and they are AWESOME!

Showtime has gone ahead and picked up Dexter for two more seasons, ensuring that “America’s favorite serial killer” will be keeping bad guys off the streets for a forth and fifth season.

Currently airing its third season, the show has become Showtime’s highest rated program. The series focuses on Dexter, portrayed by Michael C. Hall, a Miami Police Department forensics specialist who uses his special skills and department connections to identify criminals who have fallen between the cracks of the justice system, then uses his blood lust and serial killer urges in a positive way (well, positive compared to the alternative) to take them off the streets permanently.

Dexter has a lack of remorse for his actions that makes him even more intriguing. He is never trying to get the audience on his side. He never sways us with lies or sugar coats what he does. Yet for a reason even I don’t know, I can’t help but get behind him and root for him.

Dexter airs on Sundays at 9pm on Showtime.
