dexter season 6 promo Dexter Season 6 Teasers Show Off Upcoming Guest Stars

The long-awaited sixth season of Dexter is just under a week away, and Showtime is looking to share some insight into the characters that guest stars like Edward James Olmos, Colin Hanks and Mos Def will play, and how they will affect Dexter Morgan’s search for faith.

Leading up to this newest installment of Dexter, fans have been treated to an unprecedented amount of pre-season information, detailing just how the beloved serial killer plans to carry on, and what legacy he intends to leave his young son, Harrison. It appears as though Dexter is searching for some kind of faith, which – having been teased earlier this year – suggests the benevolent taker-of-lives again sees himself as an agent of good (like he briefly did in season 2).

Unlike season 2, however, the sixth installment of the series features a bevy of big names that will not just be popping in to play villain, but possibly steer Dexter down the path of righteousness or damnation.

As evidenced in the featurette, one side – the seemingly righteous one – is led by rapper/actor Mos Def as Brother Sam, a former criminal who appears to have found redemption through a higher power – a transformation he’s looking to share with Dexter.

On the other side, however, is the increasingly creepy relationship between Professor Gellar (Edward James Olmos) and his young associate Travis (Colin Hanks). Though many details surrounding Professor Gellar’s association with Travis will thankfully have to wait until the season unfolds, the pair seem to share an affiliation eerily similar to the one Dexter had with his father Harry Morgan (James Remar) – albeit a far more menacing one. It will be interesting to see what (if any) parallels the series draws between the two.

Check out the featurette below:

One of the more unexpected additions to Dexter’s crew is that of Jamie Batista (Aimee Garcia), little sister to Sgt. Angel Batista (David Zayas) and new nanny to Harrison. Though Garcia’s role is not so clearly defined in the featurette (possible romantic interest?), her arrival and position beg questions like what do we not already know about Angel’s background? And what happened to Harrison’s former nanny, Sonya (Maria Doyle Kennedy)?

While Hanks (with the exception of The Good Guys) and Def have primarily been seen on the big screen, for fan-favorite Edward James Olmos Dexter means not only a return to a popular television series, but the show also means a trip back to Miami – which served as home to Olmos for his five seasons on Miami Vice.

Both Showtime and we here at Screen Rant have said that Dexter season 6 will be a true return to form for the character and series. So, for those viewers wistful for the days of the heroic serial killer unburdened by an exceeding amount of personal responsibility, the sixth season may just be right up your alley.

Here’s a brief clip showing some of the nastier business that’s in store for Dexter:

  1. I haate Mos Def. I was very disappointed to find he was in season 6. I really hope this is a return to form after season 5, which while not being awful, never really found its feet or connected with me at all.

    That’s the problem though, when you have somehting as good as season 4 of Dexter, one of the best seasons of televsion ever made, how do you top that? Where do you go?

    • Mos Def was really great in season 6 and I was really sorry that he was killed. How can anyone hate Mos? I think the worst episodes were when Dexter was married. I still don’t like having a kid in the story. It seems an unnecessary waste of valuable screen time. A kid just doesn’t fit or belong in this type of serial killer script.

  2. I’m excited for Dexter’s return. While I’ll admit it was a bit of a mess at times I enjoyed season 5 and I thought it was a smart move on the part of the producers to not try and top season 4 with another Trinity type of villain. Like DSB says above it was almost impossible to do.
    I’ve said it here a few times before but I will say it again that I think Dexter has 2 good seasons left. I’d like to see Deb find out Dexter’s secret at the end of this season and deal with the aftermath in season 7. Stretching it out much longer will lead to the dreaded shark jumping that most people dread. And yes I do realize how ridiculous it sounds to worry about a show like this jumping the shark and staying believable…

  3. Exactly right man. They couldn’t go anywhere but down. My biggest beef with last season was how badly they insulted the intelligences of the viewer. The cops are always suppose to be a bit slow and a few steps behind Dexter anyway but last season was ridiculous. I mean closing cases with main suspects missing, not knowing Jordan Chase use to go by another name until they were told about it…Come On! I really hope this season is better because I really love the show.

  4. Oh my son and I can’t wait till Sunday!!! We both love Dexter and he comes over to my house on Sunday night and we watch it together! Gonna be a pizza and two people in front of the TV Sunday night!!! Oh I listened to the new theme song preview…. please tell me you are not going to use that!!!! Love Dexter’s Theme Song the way it was! Do not like some guy making all that annoying noise to the music!!! Very annoying!! Love the show!!!

  5. Sherry you don’t have to wait till Sunday. I saw it already on ch131.com
    The first episode was awesome!

  6. I can not wait. This is by far my favorite show. Last season couldn’t touch the fourth but not much can even come close to that. I am just excited to see this next season. My Dark Passenger is chuckling with anticipation.

  7. Saw the first episode and i’m not too sure about it. I think it’s pushing its luck now. A crazy serial killer every series… I mean come on. Couldn’t they have come at it from a new angle? it’s getting a bit stale now.
    Relatively speaking, it’s still a brilliant TV show, it’s just i’m a tad concerned with the direction its heading. And what was with that ridiculous kevlar armoured, gun toting, loon conveniently shooting up a bar where 2 main character are. I hate it when a narrative relies on cheap coincidence to drive a story!

    • Season 1 – Crazed serial killer

      Season 2 – Nope

      Season 3 – Yes, but not really the main plot

      Season 4 – Yes but it was one of the greatest seasons of television ever

      Season 5 – Not really. Couldnt call them serial killers exactly

  8. Aaaaw, I already love Jamie, Angel’s sister. She is sooooo cute! :) My type of girl!
    I was really sceptic about the new Dexter season but the trailer looks good. Let’s see what they have to offer. Maybe it’s not so bad as I’ve expected it to be.

  9. Cannot wait—had to DVR it, but looking forward to see where they go, but hopefully-not too disrespectful to Christianity–that is my one worry. But as a series fan from Day 1, I don’t think they will overdo it.

  10. Can someone pleeease explain why maria doyle kennedys not in this season another blog said that a report said that her character was either fired quit or that she died???i mean a bit of continuity would be nice if not just a little explaination appreciated!!!!
