NEW YORK – August 16, 2012 – Season six of DEXTER concluded last fall with one of the series' most shocking moments – Dexter got caught by none other than his sister Deb. As season seven kicks off on Sunday, September 30th at 9 p.m. ET/PT, DEXTER's devoted fan base wonders – what will he do, and what will she do? The wait is almost over as SHOWTIME unveils a sneak preview of the exciting upcoming season on its website: and on YouTube:


DEXTER stars Michael C. Hall in his Golden Globe® Award-winning role as Dexter Morgan, a complicated and conflicted blood-spatter expert for the Miami police department who moonlights as a serial killer. The series also stars Jennifer Carpenter, Desmond Harrington, C.S. Lee, Lauren Vélez, David Zayas and James Remar. Season seven guest stars include Jason Gedrick, Katia Winter and Santiago Cabrera, and special guest stars Ray Stevenson and Yvonne Strahovski. The show has received multiple Emmyand Golden Globenominations for best television drama series, as well as a prestigious Peabody Award in 2008, and was twice named one of AFI’s Top Ten television series.


Dexter is the No. 1 rated series on Showtime, watched by nearly 5.5 million weekly viewers across platforms. Season six was the series' highest rated season ever. Season seven returns in dramatic fashion, as Dexter (Hall) is finally forced to confront his greatest fear, as Debra (Carpenter) witnesses his insatiable, ritualistic slaying of a killer. Now Deb knows the secret of his Dark Passenger, as she tries to reconcile the unfathomable idea that her beloved, mild-mannered brother is Miami’s most notorious serial killer. Dexter is still pulled by his natural impulses to seek out the guilty and exact his brand of vigilante justice, leading him on the trail of a brutal Ukrainian mobster (Stevenson).  Along the way, Dexter meets Hannah McKay (Strahovski), a strong, independent woman with a past that she's struggled to put behind her. Produced by SHOWTIME, DEXTER is executive produced by John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, Scott Buck, Manny Coto, Tim Schlattmann, Wendy West and Michael C. Hall.

    Feels like everything’s coming to an end. How are they even going to justify the existence of an eighth season?

  • silvit

    They don’t have to justify it. They will just do another one. They will make up even more over the top plots. Money > art

  • Julie

    Come on. Does anyone really think Showtime originally put Dexter on the air for the sake of “art”? No, they put it on the air to make money – more viewers who wanted to see it = more subscribers. All TV is about money, and Dexter is no exception. You can’t claim Showtime is now being greedy for extending it for longer than you personally think it should go. They are doing what they have been trying to do since season 1 – make money!

    Watch it, Showtime viewers. Take cover. The new season promises to be “explosive!”

  • silvit


    Everything in life is about money. Which world are you living in? But if you have to make a creative product, at least make it good. Tell a story, once the story is told put it to rest. Like Vince Gilligan did with Breaking Bad or Kyra Sedgwick with The Closer. Despite what the network wanted.

    This just reminds me how much cooler BookDeb is…

    btw, they previously announced that the next season starts a 2 season long story arc that brings us to the finale.
