After the cliff-hanger season finale last year, fans of the hit television show Dexter have been like 5-year olds waiting in the bathroom queue – legs crossed and hopping up-and-down on one foot. Though there’s still plenty of time before the September 30th premiere of season 7, at least hope is finally in sight. This 7th season is, if the reports are to be believed, the second-to-last of Dexter.
All the classic characters will be back for the new season, of course, most notably the loveable killer Dexter (Michael C. Hall) and his adoring (perhaps too much?) sister Deborah (Jennifer Carpenter). In addition, Louis Greene (the creepy computer hacker from season 6) is supposed to be taking a more prominent role in the new season, which promises some interesting results.
Those in charge have even decided to throw out some tidbits to get fans’ mouths watering in anticipation of how the new season will develop. It has been stated that Dexter will no longer be the “lone wolf” he was in previous seasons, now that Deb has found out his dirty little secret. They also plan on delving deeper into the Deb-loves-Dex storyline, which, while bordering on incest, should be immensely entertaining.
Despite some criticism from fans that the show has been lacking lately, Dexter is currently Showtime’s #1 rated series and nominee of countless awards. With the 6th season rated higher than any of those previous, the show is gaining momentum as it winds down to the inevitable conclusion. Hopefully, the new season will silence the naysayers and give loyal fans an amazing build-up to the grand finale of season 8.
