Dexter to Make Like The Da Vinci Code

at . Comments

As has been made evident via multiple quotes, teasers and videos, season six of Dexter will tackle the issue of faith and religion.

But, no, Showtime President Mark Nevins joked today at the Television Critics Association press tour: "Jesus will not be on Dexter this year."

Instead, Dexter Morgan will wrestle with the question “what does it mean to raise a child given the Dark Passenger I’m carrying around with me?" Nevis said, while saying he'd find clues of a large criminal story that involves Colin Hanks and Edward James Olmos.

"The killings Dexter is following [unravel] in a Dan Brown sort of way, where there are clues to be followed.”

Might season six mark Dexter's final killing spree? It's unlikely, according to the executive: "There are things that happen this year that will set up new life for the show.”
