Production on Dexter season 7 is set to begin this week (May 23rd), and the cast is still growing: Showtime has announced that Jason Gedrick will be joining the series for a multiple-episode arc.

Known most recently for his role as Jerry Boyle on HBO’s Luck, Gedrick’s currently unnamed character is described as an “owner of a Miami-area gentlemen’s club that becomes linked to a high-profile murder case.” Perhaps not the best position to be in when there’s a serial killer vigilante out searching for new “victims.” Has Dexter (Michael C. Hall) found his second big bad for season 7?

 Rome star Ray Stevenson was previously announced for a reoccurring role, playing the leader of a Russian organized crime syndicate. Considering Stevenson’s high-profile upcoming roles in G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Thor 2 (reprising his role from Thor), he will likely play a major part in Dexter season 7. Throw in the phrase “Russian organized crime” and, well, it’s time to prep the plastic-wrap.

With Gedrick now joining the cast, his multiple-episode arc will most likely result in the character serving as a minor nemesis. That being said, Mos Def’s addition to the series last season was originally thought to be a “big bad” – but after Dexter season 6 began, Brother Sam’s true role in the series was revealed.

Brother Sam may not have delivered Dexter unto the Lord, but the Dexter season 6 finale did find our favorite blood splatter analyst saying “Oh God!” as Debra (Jennifer Carpenter) walked in on him killing Travis (Colin Hanks). For the audience, this may have been the second time saying “Oh God!” in the finale: Deb wanting to explore her romantic feelings for her brother was likely the first.

Heading into the seventh season, everyone is waiting to see what’s in store for Dexter and his Dark Passenger; if rumors prove to be true, this will be the penultimate season of the show. With many interesting storylines being established at the end of season 6, it’ll be interesting to see how they’re incorporated into the series going forward. If Dexter really does have only two seasons left, it’s likely that season 7 will be setting up the ultimate showdown.

Then again, with Dexter season 9 still a possibility, the end may not be so close after all. We’ll have to wait and see.


Dexter season 7 premieres September 30, 2012 on Showtime.

  1. End this show, you know that you are running out of story when you make one sibling fall in love with another (yes I know they are not biological, but still that’s disgusting)

    The story these past two seasons since Rita’s death had been very choppy and seems to be falling apart more and more.

    I hope they end the show like they said within the next two seasons.

    • You know what, I kind of agree. Dexter is currently my favorite show on TV. I’ve been a fan since day one, but these past two seasons have been a little disappointing.

      • Honestly i loved season 5, i thought it was one of the very best on the show quite frankly, Season 6, as much as people hated on it, my only problem with it really was that it took a good 4 or 5 episodes to get going, it was far too slow in the beginning, but after that i thought it was solid, definitely not great or anything but definitely a good season overall IMO.

    • It isn’t even the fact that it is disgusting. It is that everyone loved their relationship & they just ruined it. Just the mention of Brother Sam makes me sick. Dude came & went just as fast. And those last two episode. OMG! Still pisses me off. Once a great show. Now I don’t know. Of course I will be back.

  2. Are you nuts?

    The story is still good to me. Yes, it us a little desperate to reach for the cup of incestuous love but look at Bobbi Christina…. Ew…. Double that.
    The show is great, stop b%tching

    • I totally agree. I enjoyed every minute of the last 2 seasons, which people consider dull.

      But, I would really appreciate if they end it in 2 seasons like they plan to, keeping a show because of good viewer ratings is what I dislike the most.

      If a show is supposed to end, it better end that way it should so that everyone remembers it as a good show rather than “the show that became so bad that it had to be cancelled during mid-season”.

  3. Season 5 was great. Season 6 was an abortion.

    C’mooon lucky number 7!!

    • You’re out of your mind! Season 5 was the worst. I hated it. Lumen was the most annoying character ever.

  4. When is there going to be a trailer!!!

  5. This show needs to end. After seeing the Season 4 finale, I was expecting to see a crazy Season 5 but it turned out to be worse then Season 3 (if that’s even possible) and Season 6 was just flat out horrible with the whole “finding faith” storyline. It’s just obvious they are running out of material and all the actors (besides Michael C Hall) are crap.

  6. Show stopped being good after season 4. It’s hard for me to say cause I’m a really huge Dexter fan, but it needs to end with season 8. Even his monologues inside his head is getting annoying now

    • I don’t why people hate on Season 3. I suggest re-watching it. I totally agree with after Trinity the show died. Thought last season would get better but they just whipped the deck clean after Season 5 & it showed even more how weak the writing got in Season 6. Angers me very much & hope the next two seasons kick ass.

  7. There is no such word as reoccuring.

  8. I watched every season, and while season 5 started out very dark, the best episode ever (which was morbidly hilarious) was season 5 episode 6, “Everything is Illuminated.” I couldn’t stop laughing. I feel they could have come up with a better ending to season 5 – it just ended very abruptly. Season 6, well…not going to post any spoilers, but it ended in a way that I really want to see what happens in season 7. I would like to see how Detective Anderson’s and the computer geek’s roles play out. I’m also starting to dislike LaGuerta more and more. Love the show.

  9. End the show, are you crazy?!? Dexter is the best entertainment out there and my husband and I can’t wait for Sunday night just so we can watch this highly addictive program. The acting is fantastic. Love Michael C. Hall. Maybe those who want the show to end just aren’t finding it as scary as it was in the first seasons. To them I ask what will you watch after Dexter is over? “Gold Rush”? Come on people, don’t be so quick to want the very few really great shows out there to end! Love this show.

    • I agree absolutely and completely. The use of religion in a twisted way is utterly blasphemous and horrendous. As a christian I should abhorr this show because of it- But I don’t, because a story is a story is a story. And there ARE fanatics out there like that- so it makes for a very interesting and believable backdrop. Alas, I’m still only at episode 11 at this current point in time, but regardless, I’ll watch Dexter till the day he- i mean it- dies. Not all shows forced to continue because of ratings are bad (Look at Supernatural, it could’ve gone a LOT worse, but its turned out alright)
      So I keep hope for Dexter to follow suit- be good no matter if it ends when it “should” or keeps going.

    • I just started watching Dexter the other night…for the first time 5/25/2012, and i loved it. It was season 5 that i started with, and now i am watching s6 on on demand premium, and i gotta say, i love the whole finding faith storyline. I think it’s creative. I tell you what, the entire show is awesome! it’s original, new and there is nothing else out there like it…no copycats. I gotta say, it has landed in my all time favorite show catogories alone with Merlin, Game of Thrones, The 4400, Eureka, and Monk. Those are the only shows i rushed home to see and could not miss. Also, it makes alot of sense to have a serial killer think of his/herfuture and Faith, especially if he is only killing people who are monsters.
