Dexter to Be a Wanted Man, Help Raise His Kids on Season Five

by at . Comments

Dexter returns to Showtime in September.

Following the shocking murder that concluded season four, it's already been confirmed that the show will NOT jump months or years into the future.

How come? Because (spoiler alert!), Dexter will be considered a suspect in Rita's brutal slaying, which will be a prime focus of the new season.

Dexter and Deb

There will be other key issues at stake in the fall, as well: Harrison, Cody and Astor. What will happen to these children in the wake of their mother's death?

They'll move into Dexter's former apartment, along with Aunt Deb.

“It’s partially funny and partially not,” producer Chip Johannessen said to Michael Ausiello. “Deb is not exactly the most maternal person. Nobody quite knows what they’re doing, so there’s a certain kind of struggle to cope."

Dexter is one of our favorite shows on TV. We can't wait for its return.

Dexter Quotes

I love Halloween. The one time of year when everyone wears a mask... not just me. People think it's fun to pretend you're a monster. Me, I spend my life pretending I'm not. Brother, friend, boyfriend - All part of my costume collection. Some people might call me a fraud. Let's see if it will fit. I prefer to think of myself as a master of disguise.

There are no secrets in life, just hidden truths that lie beneath the surface.
