Dexter Season Six Premiere to Make a Time Jump

at . Comments

Ah, so this is why Dexter Morgan will be renewed and recharged when see him again in September:

Executive Producer Sara Colleton tells TV Guide the show wanted its main character to be in a "positive place" on season six. Therefore: "[We'll] jump ahead a year and find that Dexter has gotten his groove back. He's gotten over Rita and Lumen."

New showrunner Scott Buck previously said the new season would focus on a spiritual search for Dexter. Can Colleton expound on that tease?

"There are things in life that Dexter's dealing with and one of them is that Harrison is now two years old and he has to go to school," she says. "There are things that he has to start thinking about with his son, and he's been keenly aware of what it is that he doesn't want to pass on to Harrison, namely his Dark Passenger, but Dexter has no idea what it is that he does want to pass on."

In a few months, we'll find out what the killer decides.

I loved Lumen's character and wouldn't be surprised if that character returned some point before the series ends. I really enjoyed season five, but wished that Johnny Lee Miller's character had been utilized much more. Johnny was incredible on the show, but his character became an after thought due to Lumen's or Julia Stiles character. I would have liked if they'd used a unknown actor to play the lead villain.
I think season 7 will be the last season, and if I had any money, I would place my bet right now. Both producers and Micheal C. Hall have eluded to the series coming to an end sooner rather than later. One made a comment at the 2010 Comic-Con you tub that. And Micheal did an online interview in which he too stated that the series will be ending shorty, and even suggested that he would like to see Dexter be killed off. That death would be the only sensible end for Dexter, based on the life he has lived, and the lives he chose to take.


I get why season 5 was the way it was, it was dealing with grief, guilt, moving on, etc. With this jump, I hope that season 6 will be completely different. Yeah, I was a huge fan of season 5, but the way it carried out was not Dexter at all. I hope they don't bring back Julia Stiles, don't get me wrong, I like her and Lumen, but if they thought about bringing her back, it would ruin the character. Bring on Dexter season six! :D


Season 5 was a bit of a downer but Season 6 may do better than last year and DEXTER will always be DEXTER and I really predict whether Season 7 will be its last.
