'Dexter' season six trailer is here!

As usual, the cast and writers of Dexter were generous with teasers for the next season, which returns Oct. 2. Here’s what they spilled during their Comic-Con panel today in San Diego. (Check out the trailer with the awesome use of Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus” song after the jump):

    • Dexter (Michael C. Hall) begins the season with worries that the apple won’t fall far from the tree when it comes to his son, Harrison. Will the little guy be a killer, too? “That’s a fundamental fear that Dexter has, that’s where he’s at,” Hall told the crowd. “He knows he doesn’t want his son to show those traits and he doesn’t want to encourage them. That’s a constant fear and consideration.”  That’s where religion comes in! “His son is only going to get older and more in need of guidance, and Dexter feels ill-equipped to provide that. As a result he is motivated to find ways to do that, including giving him spiritual grounding .. something that Dexter hasn’t cared about.” Executive Producer Sara Colleton would like to add to that. “Dexter knows what he doesn’t want to pass on to Harrison, so he starts this journey that snowballs into a huge evolved plot for the season. It’s initiated by his desire to define faith … which is by it very nature, undefinable. It’s done in true Dexter style so it’s a lot of fun.”
    • Mos Def showed up but unfortunately, didn’t tease much about his new character Brother Sam. Dang. However, he’s dang glad to be here! “I’ve been a fan of the show since day one. I bought the DVDs. If I wasn’t here, I’d be out there asking the same questions. `What happened to Rita?'”
    • Colin Hanks, however, teased a little more about his new character, Travis. A little. “I really can’t give away too much. We want to keep it a fun surprise. But the one thing I can say is you’re gonna see some stuff this season that you have not seen in previous seasons. It’s exciting and I may or may not be a part of that.
    • C.S. Lee said his character Masuka has some shenanigans in store. “Interns are coming up this year.  Women and men. He probably gets into some trouble with some interns.” What about a real romance? “We all know him as a flaming crotch but there are other signs to him,” Lee said. “You’ll see more this year this season.”
    • What’s next for you, Hall, when Dexter is over? (Don’t worry, fans: No one said anything about ending the show yet). “I didn’t know Dexter was in my future back when I was a funeral director,” he said. “Hopefully it will be something I can not quite imagine.”

    wow!! I have high hopes for this season

  • Ashley

    That was awesome!

  • dave blahan

    Um, you do realise that it was the Marilyn Manson version of “Personal Jesus” playing in the trailer, don’t you? A reasonably important distinction, I’d say

    • DarkPassenger

      October is so long to wait, especially after a trailer as killer as that one. I’m looking forward to Dexter himself, back to his real self, I hope, the most.
      And yes, Personal Jesus is Depeche Mode’s song (and any connection between them and Dexter is my own personal ecstasy), but that wasn’t them. I appreciate the Dexter info, but as a Modey, I had to point out the error.

      • MCS

        I thought the trailer was awful, especially compared to Showtime’s usual trailers which are excellent.

      • Dream Out Loud

        that should be the theme song.

    • eSmitty

      I agree, that was the Marilyn Manson version (and way more appropriate for Dexter)

    • MattS

      Thank you for pointing that out. Definitely NOT Depeche Mode. LOL.

      • Brad H

        Not to get nitpicky… but they just referred to it as an “awesome use of Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus” song…”. While they could have said “the Marilyn Manson version of Depeche Mode’s ‘Personal Jesus’ song”, I think that is a little bit wordy. You got the point, you knew the song… RELAX. lol.
        One important note, it was Depeche Mode that wrote it, and made it famous.

  • Warsaw

    looks good, but the show needs to have an end date.

    • Dexterina

      Totally agree. I want it to end while it’s at the top of its game…though it’ll be hard not to see our favorite serial killer in action!

    • Valley Girl

      Ditto… Can’t wait until this season starts!

  • Zo

    God, Oct 2?? It gets later and later every year…. I yearn for when it used to begin in August!

    • Don

      It never used to start in August. It has always been either late September or October. Sorry, you’re wrong.

      • Alex F

        well neener neener.

  • Rob


  • Sarah


  • dee

    Looks good & yeah, it was the Marilyn Manson cover. Amazing how he’s covers of 80’s songs works so well.

  • Summer

    Um… what other 80’s songs has Marilyn Manson covered?

    • dee

      Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) & Tainted Love.

  • shoshone

    Luv DEXTER!
    Can’t wait!

  • Anne

    The scenes went by too fast!!! No fair! Can’t wait!

    • mazie beth

      all the more to tease you, my dear…and all of us, too.

    • Ron

      Horrible trailer, fast jerky shots with no connection to any story line. Worst trailer they have ever made. If you don’t read the bi-line first its just a modge podge of rapid fire bits and pieces. Definitely no clues or spoilers hidden in that pathetic mess. What was that supposed to be, a Bourne Identity rip off copy? October is sure a long ways off but the earliest they have ever started is only about a week sooner.

      Wouldn’t it be appropriate to end the series with Dexter dying to save his son’s life by killing and getting mortally wounded by a, would be, vengeful assassin who had tracked down his identity and was stalking all of his family members. They could even bring back the gal from last season coming back to find him dying. He asks her as a favor to clean up the trail of clues that reveal his dark side and would be a stigma on his son’s life. That would be cool without leaving a bad taste.

      Either that or have him totally walking away from his dark side for his son’s benefit. That would be by far the coolest way to end it all

  • timelord

    i’m looking forward to homeland too. so glad to have damian lewis back on tv

  • Matthew Moore

    Mos Def is a huge fan who has been with the show since the beginning and still asked “What happened to Rita?”.. really? I am not a fan of his music, but every interview I have seen has given me a pretty favorable opinion of him. But “What happened to Rita” is a major story arch that basically spans two seasons..

  • dusty

    Did i see Keith from Six Feet Under? If so….WOW!
