Published 5 years ago by , Updated February 10th, 2012 at 7:39 am,

Season 3 of the the TV show about your friendly neighborhood serial killer, Dexter, has finally got a DVD and Blu-ray release date. Dexter: The Complete Third Season 4-disc DVD and 3-disc Blu-ray sets will be released together on August 18, 2009.

No news yet on the special features included with the DVD and/or Blu-ray, but we do have the front cover artwork for them both. Check out Michael C. Hall looking sharp and slick-as-hell in a gray suit as Dexter (click image for larger size):

[Warning: the following contains SPOILERS about the events of Dexter seasons 1-3]

Dexter is one of those shows that, in my opinion, hasn’t changed much in terms of quality throughout the seasons. Each season had its highlights – Season 1 introduced the idea of a “friendly serial killer”; Season 2 had the Miami Police Department unknowingly hunting Dexter (who works from them himself); and for Season 3, it was Dexter unwisely trusting someone he barely knows. The quality of the show is consistently high – think about how rare that is.

And, since he totally deserves it, I must make mention of the fact that Michael C. Hall is utterly brilliant as Dexter.

[End of  spoilers]

I’m digging the artwork for the third season of Dexter: It gives off the feeling of him being a professional at what he does. It’s simple, clear, and most importantly, it’s not too cluttered.

With regards to Dexter in general, if I had to choose a favorite season I think it would have to be season 2, simply because, to me, it was the most compelling as far as “what’s going to happen next?” However, that certainly doesn’t take away anything from either the first or third season.

If you haven’t had the chance to watch Dexter yet, I recommend you do so ASAP. If you enjoy compelling, exciting, unpredictable, well-acted and well-written TV, I promise it won’t let you down.

What is your opinion on the artwork for the third season DVD and Blu-ray of Dexter? Are you a fan of the show? If so, what’s been your favorite season so far?

Dexter: The Complete Third Season DVD and Blu-ray will hit stores in the U.S. and Canada on August 18th, 2009. Screen Rant will be sure to update you when news of special features gets released. No word yet on an overseas release date.

  1. I loved the first two seasons of DEXTER, season two being my favorite.

    But I thought season three was weak sauce. Started off good, but went downhill 3 or 4 episodes into it, and couldn’t get back up IMO. Not enough of Dexter doing what he does best, a little too far on the “soap opera” element, and events moved very slow in comparison to the previous two seasons. Especially re: the final “show down” between Dexter and the season three antagonist. The overall plot seemed convoluted near the end too.

    That said, I’ll probably still pick this up, lol. DEXTER <3

  2. @DeAnte,

    It’s interesting to hear you say that – most people I’ve talked to about season 3 thought it started off slow and then got better and better as the season went on. I didn’t get that soap opera vibe at all, I thought it injected A LOT of heart into the show, with it having a few of the most “touching” episodes, if you could say that about such a show :P

    As I said in my post, I feel the show has been consistent with it’s quality. Of course, that’s just me.

  3. August?? WTH? Didn’t it end like a few months ago? Oh well, guess I’ll have to wait… Don’t have showtime, so I watch it when it comes out on DVD, lol.

  4. I prefer the books to the show. Michael C. Hall is perfect as Dexter, but otherwise I don’t care much about it.

  5. Does he not just scream Riddler? He’d be perfect.

  6. @ Ross Miller, you’re right. I seem to be in the “minority” re: season 3 of Dexter. Early on ppl were saying the season was slow, but then got better. I had always thought that the beginning of season 3 was great, but then got worse. Interesting.

    Who knows, maybe my views will change when I watch it again…

  7. I’m definitely gonna buy the dvd but season 3 was weak.
    I was sooo disappointed. the miguel-dexter scenes were great but it took them so lang to get the story going!!
    I LOVE SEASON 1 TO DEATH but since then the show has been on a continuing downfall (for me), I hope season 4 is better or at least more enjoyable for me!

  8. I too was a little dissapointed with season 3. Don’t get me wrong, I love Dexter, but in comparison the first 2 (2 being my favourite) I found 3 just a little frustrating to watch. I thought it was slow and drawn out. Plus I didn’t enjoy watching our Dexter losing so much control over his life, so unlike his usual clean and methodical self. Oh well, that has in no was turned me off the show. It almost felt like it was building up to the next season instead of focusing on the current season. So I’m haning out for season 4!!

  9. I just rented season 1 after hearing about how great the show it and after just the first episode I declare this show AMAZING!!! Hopefully by the time I’m done with season’s 1 and 2 I’ll be ready to rent 3 or the release date will at least be close.

  10. @Stephen

    Yah, it’s a pretty good show, enjoy it. Rent Rome next, you won’t be disappointed.

  11. DEXTER iS AMAZiNG… i FELT THAT SEASON 3 WAS GOOD iN THE BEGiNNiNG, HE DiDN’T KiLL ENOUGH PEOPLE iN MY OPiNiON, BUT THERE WERE REASONS WHY HE DiDN’T… iT SLOWED DOWN THROUGHOUT MiD-SEASON, BUT THEN PiCKED UP TOWARDS THE END AND i THiNK, ALL CAME TOGETHER NiCELY iN THE END, i DON’T KNOW WHAT SEASON 4 WiLL BE LiKE, iM EXCiTED TO SEE IF THE BABY iS GONNA COME, HOW HE’LL KiLL BEiNG A MARRiED MAN.. WE’LL SEE. SEASON 3 COMES TO DVD/BLU RAY AUGUST 18TH AND SEASON 4 PREMiERS SEPTEMBER 27TH.. COUNTiNG DOWN THE DAYS… i FiNG LOVE DEXTER!!!

  12. I haven’t watched that show because the head writer for that show also did the book to screen adaptation for Twilight, which as most of you know, I absolutely hated.

    I see though that maybe this thinking is a mistake. I think I will give it a try.

  13. First episode of season 4 had leaked online a mth an dI watched it and I must say pretty good!!! I thought the first season was the best, 2nd the 2nd best, and 3rd the 3rd best…and I thought that this trend would continue with the 4th but so far it looks like I was wrong. First episode of the new season is very raw and has a lot of new things in the works and yet it still maintains the same happy-go-lucky/sinister feel of the previous seasons. In this season Dexter’s foe (John Lifkow) is revealed to us within the first 10 min of the episode in one of the most gruesome scenes the show has ever witnessed. It looks like it is going to be a good season!!

  14. I personally didn’t like season 2 that much. For me I would rate them best to worst:
    season 1
    season 3
    season 2

    But even the “worst” is still WAY better than 95% of the shows out there…

    The reason I didn’t like the 2nd season was that woman was just so freakin annoying!!! She had to aaannuuuunnnciiiiiaaaate eeeeveeeeereeee wooooord soooo saaaayiiiiing aaaaa siiiiingllleeee seeeeenteeeeeence toooook foooooooreeeeeeveeeerrrrr. I swear if she opened her mouth any bigger when she spoke Dexter could have shoved a triple whopper down her throat without resistance… I was so glad when the end came and he finally killed her, thank freakin goodness…
