Dexter season 6 Showtime Dexter Season 6 Teaser Video

Dexter Morgan is set to return for season 6 of the his Showtime series, as usual, in the fall – with production scheduled to begin at the end of the month.

While we’ve seen Dexter (the character and the show) go through a lot of changes over the years – Showtime wants to remind viewers that the empathetic serial killer is still miles away from becoming a normal family man. To that end, the network has released a new season 6 teaser video for the upcoming season.

The season 6 teaser contains mild spoilers for Dexter seasons 1-5 and recounts the character’s journey thus far – from a simpler time, merely solving crimes by day at Miami Metro (and dispatching fell0w serial killers by night) to stepping into the role of dutiful suburban family man (and dispatching fellow serial killers by night).

Interestingly enough, the season 6 teaser does not cover the events of the most recent season – either because it didn’t add as much to the overarching drama or, more likely, because Showtime doesn’t want to spoil the season for anyone who is planning on catching it on DVD/Blu-ray.

Check out the Dexter season 6 teaser promo below:

It goes without saying that the rest of this post will contain MAJOR Spoilers for Dexter seasons 1-5, so if you’re still getting caught-up on the show – enjoy another peek at the teaser and then read on at your own risk.

Considering that next season is supposed to be a “return to Dexter’s roots,” the teaser trailer does a good job of reminding fans of the set-ups in prior seasons (The Bay Harbor Butcher investigation, Miguel Prado’s impulsive killing spree, and the Trinity Killer killer fallout) – without offering-up any finite conclusions for anyone who hasn’t been watching.

It’s certainly interesting to see the network highlight the ever-suspicious Doakes – since, following his untimely demise in season 2, Showtime seems poised to replace him with a nearly identical character in the form of season 6 homicide detective Chicago Mike.

Given that season 5 came-across as more of a buffer, following the earth-shattering season 4 finale, it’s safe to say that the new season will need to be a little more inventive – and take a few more risks. Many fans felt as if season 5 was finally going to see Deb uncover Dexter’s double-life – but were let down with a somewhat anti-climatic non-faceoff between the two in the final episode.

Hopefully the featured teaser tagline “all Hell breaks loose” delivers on that promise and audiences are treated to some tense but satisfying character developments.

  1. This is my favorite show on television but I have to say that the show is on track to run it’s course. I really hope that they end the show this season and give us a great finale, unlike last season’s season finale which was pretty lackluster.

    This season we need some bold changes.
    Most important thing is that Deb should know about Dexter. Its about time.
    Also what angle are they going to play? It looks like we have looked at this character from every angle. I think that this season shoudl play out as more of a murder/mystery. Give us a big death at the beginning and then try and solve it throughout the season.

    What not to do: Dexter dating people. This is not where the substance of the show lies and we need to move on from this.

    What to do: Kill off some of the main cast, have Dexter revealed, have Dexter lose his grip on his life

  2. Is returning is returning! Wow that’s some excitement or maybe someone who’s English teacher didn’t tell them that some people aren’t interested in reading stuff with poor grammar or typos.

    • Apologies. Typos happen but, if you’re going to call us out, maybe you should check the proper grammar form of “who’s” – spoiler alert: “whose” is the possessive form not “who’s” (which is a contraction for “who is” or “who has”).

    • Fail troll is fail.

    • Itwork4me,

      And someone’s mother didn’t teach them any manners.


      • Yeah she skipped manners went for grammars. All the same… your folks, I assume, are compensated to post here…so it would be nice if they at least re-read their stuff. I know this isn’t a newspaper, but I’d hope a post like this would be reviewed if the author was looking for a profession, so his employer would know he doesn’t re-read his post. Things occurring twice on a line are not typos but evidence of unclear thought. Who’s, instead of whose is a typographical function of a product ~ autocorrect.

        • Itworkforme,

          Maybe you could go through the 100 articles we’ve published this month so far totaling probably 50,000 words and tell us how many mistakes you can find.

          Every article goes through an editor (two of which have degrees in journalism), which is more than most sites out there do, but still, once in a great while, a mistake slips through. Not even your perfect self is immune, it seems.

          We appreciate when folks point out minor errors and we fix them immediately – my point is you don’t have to be an ass about it.


  3. Yikes! I hope the grammer police don’t read any of my posts because they are a mess. I do love when a troll gets owned though so thanks Vic & Staff.
    Back to Dexter. The 1st comment here mentioned ending the show after this season but I think 2 more would be perfect. Have Deb find out at some point this year and have Season 7 deal with the aftermath. But that’s it. Dexters my favorite show but I don’t want to see it drawn out.

    • Dexter is my favorite show as well, but I for one would not like to see it come to a close. I feel that a good, give or take a few, 10 seasons wouldn’t be so bad. That would be long enough to completly finish out his story without it feeling rushed and still short enough so it doesn’t feel like we are beating a dead horse.

  4. excited about the new season, I just hope that dexter gets a satisfying conclusion, as in a happy ending, although im not sure its in the cards.
    anyway, i’m excited!

  5. “The video you are trying to watch cannot be viewed from your country or location” :( i searched on youtube, but i couldn’t find a recently uploaded one. I’m guessing this is a quite new promo?
