Thanks to an continuous stream of teasers, trailers, and casting updates, we already have some idea of what we can look forward to from the new season of Dexter. Now, a new behind-the-scenes video spills still more details on the upcoming season, which will hit Showtime this fall.
The previous promos have all pushed the religion angle pretty hard, and the new one finally provides some context for Dexter’s (Michael C. Hall) sudden interest in the topic. Additionally, we get a really good look at Edward James Olmos and Colin Hanks, two of the more exciting recent additions cast. Check out the video, plus a gallery of Season 6 stills, after the jump. (Be forewarned that major spoilers for Seasons 1-5 follow, as well as some more minor reveals about Season 6.)

Showtime premiered a new trailer for the upcoming Dexter season at Comic-Con last night, just like it has for the past few years. There’s lots of new footage in the trailer, but unfortunately it’s mostly a jumble of quick cuts that fails to set up what the series is aiming at in the next season. At this point I’m worried that the next season will be mostly more of the same for Dexter — a shame, because the show could be vastly improved with a well-placed injection of creativity. But hey, it features a Marilyn Manson cover of Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus” — so I suppose that’s something new.
I couldn’t make it to the Showtime panel at Comic-Con, but as EW reports, that trailer song choice wasn’t an accident. Dexter will apparently be exploring the notion of faith this season as he tries to find a suitable moral compass for his son Harrison, Michael C. Hall said at the panel. Read More »

Who’s ready for the fall television season? I, for one, am not — I’ve still got a ton of catching up to do, for one thing, and it means the end of summer, for another — but I suspect I may be alone in this. At any rate, the networks would like to remind you to start preparing yourselves for the upcoming season. We’ve got great new teasers for the sixth season of Dexter and the fourth season of Fringe, plus a clip and a poster from Season 2 of The Walking Dead, all after the jump.

Showtime’s Dexter keeps rolling, and the channel promises that this upcoming sixth season will bring the character, played once again by Michael C. Hall, back to his roots. There are new cast members like Edward James Olmos, Colin Hanks, and the recently cast Molly Parker (Deadwood) to add a little extra flavor, too. Now we’ve got some new info on the show. After the break you’ll find:
- An enjoyably creepy teaser clip in which Dexter explains just what to expect this season.
- The nature of Molly Parker’s role.
- And, perhaps more interesting, the possible nature of the character played by Edward James Olmos.
Some of what follows is potentially spoilerish, so if you want to let the show deliver the surprises, just watch the teaser and move on. Read More »

Dexter creator James Manos, Jr. will be making his first stab (ha) at feature film directing with Love, Scotch and Death, from a screenplay he wrote about a character based on himself. And to play his cinematic stand-in, he’s picked a familiar face: everyone’s favorite serial killer, Dexter Morgan himself. Or rather, Michael C. Hall, the actor who plays Dexter Morgan on the Showtime series. Hall will be joined by Vera Farmiga, who’s also signed on to the project. Read more after the jump.

Despite an impressive, eclectic ensemble cast of comedic and dramatic actors, Peep World failed to generate much enthusiasm when it premiered at TIFF last year, garnering some middling reviews from a select few outlets and otherwise not making much of an impact. Nevertheless, IFC picked up the film for distribution and have now released an official trailer.
The film centers around a dysfunctional Jewish family that turns on each other when its youngest member writes a bestselling book exposing all their most intimate secrets. Michael C. Hall, Sarah Silverman, Rainn Wilson and Ben Schwartz comprise the four main siblings, and they’re accompanied by such talents as Kate Mara, Taraji P. Henson, Judy Greer and Ron Rifkin as their father. Barry W. Blaustein (The Ringer) directs. Watch the trailer after the break. Read More »
