Tag: Dexter (53-65 of 123)
Happy Friday, friends!
I’ve had a long and exhausting week trolling the sets of your favorite shows in rainy (but completely lovely) Vancouver, and it’s paid off. Not only have I walked away from my travels with a new love for all things (and people) Canadian, but I come back to my motherland with plenty of TV bounty.
And before you dig in, remember to send me your questions about everything you’re watching. From the highly acclaimed (Good Wife?) to the pleasantly culty (Vampire Diaries?), I want to hear what’s on your brains. Send all queries to email@example.com and remember, as always, to follow me on Twitter (@EWSandraG) for the latest.

It’s about that time again.
And I’m particularly excited going into this weekend because I’m days away from making my maiden voyage to Canada. (No, not to track the history of Robin Sparkles.) That’s right, my little maple leaves, I’m headed north to visit the sets of Once Upon a Time, Alcatraz, Supernatural, and The Secret Circle. Exciting, right? So send me your questions for the stars of those shows ASAP!
And remember to be sending me your questions (via e-mail or Twitter!) on shows new and returning, reactions to buzzy episodes of your favorite shows, and your general ponderings! (Y’all had a great batch of questions this week!) Until next week!
‘HIMYM': READER QUESTIONS ANSWERED
It’s no secret I’ve been mildly obsessed with How I Met Your Mother lately. And judging by the caliber and depth of your questions, I’m not alone! So while chatting with creator Carter Bays about last week’s episode, I threw in a few of your questions as well! The fruits of your labors are below! READ FULL STORY
Just because ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX and CW are rolling out all their finest, doesn’t mean all the cable networks have hung out the Gone Fishin’ signs. There are still plenty of good series to look forward to from the likes of Showtime, TLC, BBC America et al. (Well, except maybe Texas Multi Mamas on WE. What the heck is that?) READ FULL STORY

System failing. Too much TV. Abort! Abort!
Anyone else feeling a little overwhelmed by all the amazing television this week? Well, buck up, sissy pants! Fall TV is not for the weak. It’s for the bravest, strongest, most wonderfully reclusive individuals. Together we will conquer.
That said, I need your help. Be sure you’re sending in your scoop requests, sharing your TV ponderings, and telling me your general shows of interest so I can make sure I’m filling your need for scoops during this hectic TV time. (Send e-mails to firstname.lastname@example.org or follow me on Twitter: @EWSandraG) Until next week!
(Side note: In case you missed it, we also had a special Emmy scoops edition earlier this week that you can read here.)
DEXTER REVISITS THE PAST IN AWESOME PREMIERE
Last season of Dexter ended with the door open for anything to happen. Lumen lost her darkness and left, Dexter had taken down the season’s villain, and there was even a small note of optimism on his part that he could one day live without his own darkness following him.
On Oct. 2, we pick up with Harrison starting pre-school and Dexter very much at peace with his darkness. And, dare I say, enjoying it again.
Without ruining too much (because I honestly felt incredibly psyched by the premiere and want you to experience it for yourself), much of the episode centers around Dexter tracking down a potential victim at his 20th high school reunion. There, we not only get a great picture of who Dexter was as a high school student, but also get a good laugh out how his classmates perceive him now. (He’s… popular!)
We’re also introduced to Colin Hanks and Edward James Olmos’ demented characters. I can happily report that the first murder they are responsible for is one of the most disgusting ones I’ve ever seen on the show. Congrats, newbies! READ FULL STORY
The Office meets Dexter?
Yes! Ricky Gervais, the creator of The Office and Extras is teaming up with former Dexter showrunner, Clyde Phillips, for a new show called Afterlife, about an atheist who dies and goes to heaven.
They are writing the pilot episode now and plan to film in early 2012, though no studio is yet attached. Gervais will take a cameo role.
On his website, Gervais wrote, “Dexter has consistently been my favourite show of the last five years. When I first saw Clyde’s name all over it I knew I had to work with him one day. I found out he was also a fan of my work and we became friends on email and through short conversations on various red carpets. We finally started working on an idea this year and we really hit it off. I am so exited about this project.”
The plot has traces of Gervais’ The Invention of Lying, the 2009 film that featured Gervais as a desperate underachiever who introduces the idea of God to a naive society where no one else has yet contemplated the notion of telling a falsehood.
Waiting for season 6 of Dexter is murder, but here’s something to tide you over — a first look at an image from the first episode! (We pause for a SPOILER ALERT.) Witness blood splatter analyst/serial killer Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) squatting by a stitched-up corpse while preparing an evidence bag of… baby snakes? “That is the first mysterious kill linked to Professor Gellar that’s going to cross Dexter’s path and let him know that he’s up against a killer, the likes of which he hasn’t seen before,” exec producer Scott Buck tells EW, referencing the charismatic religious studies professor that will be played by Edward James Olmos. “This is a person who’s sending out a message, and Dexter can’t wait to figure out what that message is.” To see another image from the new season, which debuts this fall, check out the issue of EW hitting newsstands on Friday. (UPDATE: New Dexter image is here!) And to read more from Buck on season 6, click here.

Ready to get up close and personal with a serial killer? Showtime has released a new trailer for season 6 of Dexter, and it’s engaging, entrancing, and quietly disturbing. “I’m feeling like my old self again,” intones Michael C. Hall’s Dexter, sounding like the confident killing machine from earlier seasons. Season 6, which debuts this fall, includes guest stars such as Edward James Olmos, Colin Hanks, and Mos Def. Watch the clip below. READ FULL STORY
Battlestar Galactica star Edward James Olmos has signed on to the sixth season of Showtime’s Dexter.
He’s going to play a “brilliant, charismatic professor of religious studies.” The former Admiral Adama is added to a cast list that includes previously announced guest stars like Colin Hanks and Mos (formerly Mos Def). Production on the next season starts on May 25 and the show debuts this fall.
Here’s a teaser (no new footage, though): READ FULL STORY
Hip hop star-turned-actor Mos (formerly Mos Def) will join season six of Dexter this fall. He’ll appear in a multi-episode arc as Brother Sam, an ex-con who claims to have found religion but is still surrounded by violence.
Production on Dexter begins in June in Los Angeles.
Mos earned an Emmy nomination in 2004 for his work in HBO’s Something the Lord Made. His film credits include 16 Blocks, The Italian Job and The Woodsman.
