Dexter Season 6 Showtime Dexter Season 6 Trailer: Dexter Searches For Faith

Everyone’s favorite killer is on his way. Michael C. Hall and the rest of the Dexter crew were on hand at Comic Con 2011 to discuss the sixth season of Showtime’s hit series. At the same time, a new, full-length trailer also dropped, giving fans their first official look at what the season holds.

Since the end of season 5, it has seemed that Dexter has been on a non-stop marketing campaign – detailing the myriad ways in which the upcoming season will bring the titular character back to his roots and sharpen the edges, which may have dulled as a result of his (briefly) becoming a family man.

Season 6 is no reboot, however. There is still going to be plenty of new obstacles that Dexter will have to face – but in doing so, the killer may finally find himself on the path he was always meant to take.

As teased in last week’s promo, Dexter may be on the path of spiritual enlightenment this season, perhaps transitioning the concept of his dark passenger from insatiable need to doing good work for the man upstairs.

Hall suggests that the character’s interest in divinity may have to do with the fact that his son Harrison is now a little boy, and Dexter is looking to provide a different kind of guidance than was offered by his adoptive father Harry Morgan (James Remar). Hall says, “Dexter feels ill-equipped to provide [guidance], and as a result, is motivated to find ways to do that, including maybe giving him some sort of spiritual grounding, something Dexter has never really cared about, but recognizes his son might need.

The pursuit of enlightenment is not a journey Dexter will have to take on his own, though. Enter the season’s highly-publicized guest stars Edward James Olmos, Colin Hanks and Mos Def. Olmos will play Professor Geller, a scholar of religious history who may share a clandestine connection with Hank’s Travis Marshall. The journey, of course, would not be complete without a visit from someone of the cloth – which, in this case is Mos Def, an ex-con on a mission to set others on the path of righteousness.

Take a look at the trailer below:

Of course season 6 won’t only be about the new faces in Dexter’s life. There’s always the underlying threat that someone like his sister Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) or co-workers Angel (David Zayas) and Vince Masuka (C.S. Lee) will become privy to his extra-curricular activities.

Arguably the tensest moment of season 5 was when Deb stumbled upon Dexter’s kill-room while he and Lumen (Julia Stiles) were in the midst of removing evidence of their crime. Will this be the season that finally crosses that line? Showrunner Scott Buck says the odds are not in Deb’s favor. “Deb is very smart, but Dexter is smarter.”

Watch Dexter hammer his way through season 6 starting October 2 @9pm on Showtime.

  1. first! always wanted to do that.
    this looks so sexy. who’s the girl giving dex a blow job! wtf?! i love him so much! it looks much sexier than the othdr seasons. he’s always so oblivious when it comes to sex.

  2. This season looks amazing looks a lot better than season 5..can not wait!!

  3. Edited like The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, nice.

    I think the whole religion thing might just be for Harrison.

  4. I’ve tried to pause it but I still can’t tell who he was fighting with @ :50 into the clip. It kind of looks like Quinn. This was awesome and I am now officially excited for the new season. It seems like Dexter’s journey torwards faith will be a bumpy road.

    • Quinn? Maybe, almost looks like Harry with all those wrinkles… Maybe its a fight between the dark passenger and the whole religious thing?

  5. Also, is there gonna be voodoo or some rituals involved? I noticed a scene with Dexter holding his side with blood on his shirt and then they cut to the wound on the Jesus statue o_O

  6. In the books, Dexter comes across the nature behind his Dark Passenger and it is tied in with religion, so I am wondering if they are going to be using part of this storyline even though in the books it was a hard sell.

    • I think they said they would not go there. In the books the Dark Passenger crossed the line to becoming supernatural, as in an actual demon or something. I don’t know, I haven’t read the books.
      But I do think they said they wouldn’t cross the same line, and that is a good thing.

  7. They made a point of saying the writers have no read past the first book. So there will be no further connections here.

    • That would be true if they hadn’t of used elements of book 2 in season 2 and the Sante Muerte thing is big in the evolution of the Dark Passneger.

  8. I can’t wait! Dexter seasons are always so much better when he has a villian to catch rather than a sidekick to teach. The Ice Truck Killer and the Trinity Killer were epic. And now we get to see the old dude from American Me as a psycho! I can’t wait to see the job he does. Plus, you know Deb has got to find out about Dexter’s Dark Passenger this season. I got a good feeling people!!!

  9. Looks like an exciting season! I will be ordering Showtime, that’s for sure! I can’t wait to see what happens!!

  10. A good combination of actors and Elmos is always fun to watch…

  11. this season is gonna be crazy!! cANT WAIT YEAAAAHHHHHHH

  12. This season will be incredible. Was he crying I want point in the trailer?,

  13. Season five was great and the only problem I had with the season was the three story lines going on, at one time within one season. There was Lumens and Dexter; Lumen and her Ex; Quinn and Deb; Quinn and the PI; Maria La Guerta and Angle Batista; Quinn and Dexter; Boyd Fowler, Lumen, Chase; Lumen and Dexter. I mean really? it was too much, and then the writers had the nerve to make Lumen and Dexter’s characters hook up, as if their story line wasn’t complicated enough. Why? why so much going in within one season? at any rate despite the madness and confusion, I actually really enjoyed season 5 but I would have loved if the writers could have edited the story lines down and and just focused on Chase character a little more. I thought Johnny Lee Miller did a incredible job and should have had a fuller story line, but was overshadowed by Lumens character. Hopefully season 6 won’t be so complicated. Oh yeah! and at some point the writers will have to hook Dexter up with a lady, or else he’s going to look start looking crazier then he already does-I mean pedeophile crazy, and I know his character is not that way, but he will come off that way because you can’t go around stripping people nude, chopping them up into pieces, and disposing their bodies in the ocean and not have sex on side at some point. Sorry don’t mean to be crude but I’ve got to be real. The mans a serial killer who stalks his prey, he’s already weird enough.

  14. I would like for lumen to return at some point too.
