As the new season of DEXTER fast approaches, details have finally started to leak on what fans can expect from its Sixth year…

First comes the news that popular hip-hop star and (arguably less popular*) actor MOS DEF is joining the cast for a multi-episode arc as “a hardened ex-con who claims to have found religion yet seems to continually find himself surrounded by violence”.

Another major addition to the cast is Colin Hanks (Gump’s kid) who is rumoured to be playing the season’s Big Bad – a “highly intelligent ancient artifacts expert who is linked to a series of murders in Miami.”

As lovers of the show will be aware, these guys certainly have big shoes to fill considering the many fantastic turns by previous season guest stars – John Lithgow was magnificent as the terrifying Trinity Killer; Jimmy Smits compelling as a District Attorney seduced by his secret desire to kill; hell, they even got a decent performance out Julie Stiles!

Our favourite serial killer will return to our screens this September.

* At least around these offices anyway - his horrible turn in HHGTTG was unforgivable!

What do you want from this new season? Maybe an explanation as to why Miami is home to an inordinate amount of serial killers? Will Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter be awkward around each other now they’ve separated but still have to play brother and sister? Let us know with your comments below!

Really excited for this. Dexter is consistently excellent. Mos Def isn’t too jarring as a guest star (House), and was pretty funny in The Hard Way (Frog Dog! Tasty!). Time will tell if he’s got the chops to go head to head with Hall in a multi episode arc. Not sure about Hanks as the big bad but who knows? I was underwhelmed when I heard Jonny Lee Miller was central in Season 5 and that turned our pretty darn well!
