Show File: Dexter Season 6 (Spoilers)


May 28

  • This great Dexter news blog has reported that Dexter Season 6 is filming in front of a local preschool. This is in keeping with Michael Ausiello’s theory of a time-jump which would see Dexter’s son Harrison a bit older and in pre-school.
  • Screen Junkies also has picked up on the fact that Brea Grant has joined the cast of Season 6… she has also hinted that she will be in a white lab coat.

What do we know?

The core cast will remain intact, and here it is;

Michael C. Hall as Dexter Morgan

Dexter’s Family

Jennifer Carpenter as Debra Morgan 

James Remar as Harry Morgan

Preston Bailey as Cody Bennett 

Christina Robinson as Astor Bennett 

Dexter’s Colleagues – Miami PD

Lauren Vélez as Lt. Maria LaGuerta 

David Zayas as Sgt. Angel Batista 

C.S. Lee as Vince Masuka 

Desmond Harrington as Joey Quinn

What’s New?

As has come to be the norm, there are some tantalising additions to the cast;

  • Edward James Olmos (“Battlestar Galactica”) – A brilliant and charismatic professor of religious studies (Source: TVLine)
  • Mos Def (“Be Kind Rewind”) – Unnamed antagonist
  • Colin Hanks – A “highly intelligent young expert on ancient artifacts” (Digital Spy). Will be playing a “villain” in the series, however, given that producers have stated that there will not be a “big bad” such as Miguel or Trinity. it is likely that he won’t be the central focus, nor the only major antagonist.
  • Aimee Garcia – The new nanny (replacing Maria Doyle Kennedy)
  • Billy Brown – (“Lights Out”) has joined the cast as Chicago Mike (Hollywood Reporter)
  • Brea Grant – (“Heroes”) Unknown role, will be appearing in a white lab coat.

There are also some new characters, TVLine reports:

Jamie: Described as an outgoing and fun Latina in her mid-20s, this Florida native relocates to Miami for grad school.

(Possibly Aimee Garcia’s role?)

Chicago Mike: (HAS NOW BEEN CAST) New thirtysomething African-American homicide detective who possesses a finely turned BS detector. The Windy City native does not play well with others.

Louis: A buddy of Masuka’s (C.S. Lee) who joins MMP as a new lab intern. Role calls for a Caucasian actor in his 30s who is “attractive in his own way.”

Also, “… An elementary school teacher.”

Number Crunch

Production on the sixth series started May 25 in Los Angeles.

The show will premiere September 25. 2011.

There will be 12 episodes in Season 6, bringing the total up to 72 episodes.

Rumour Mill (Unconfirmed)

  • Screenrant reports on speculation that Vince Masuka will die in the premiere episode.
  • Many have stated that Debra could finally find out about Dexter’s secret life, especially when you look at the tagline:

“This fall… all hell breaks loose”

And the quote on TVLine:

“There will be a microscope on the Deb/Dexter relationship this season,” Nevins revealed. “Over time you’re going to see that relationship evolve and change, no questions about it.”

  • TVLine also floats the possibility of there being a time-jump of a considerable period of time (ie. more than a couple of years).
  • Television Blend believes the season could be centred around the theme of “religion”.

And here’s the teaser trailer:
