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):

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.

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.
