Dexter : Season 3 Will "Change His Life Forever"

Are you wondering what is in store for our loveable serial killer by night Blood Spatter Analyst by day Dexter? Clyde Phillips who is the executive producer for the darker than most series has spilled the beans. He hints that Dexter might not be able to stay under the radar in Season 3....
"Dexter inadvertently sets in motion a chain of events that will change his life not only for this year, but change his life forever"
But that means we won't be going over old ground of the Season 2 manhunt.
"We’re done with that, but that doesn’t mean he’s not in great jeopardy. For Season 3, we had to basically start it all over. We really had to cut [the storyline] from whole cloth."
As reported earlier Jimmy Smits is joining the cast but not as an adversary to Dexter.
"He plays an assistant district attorney who is a rising star in the city of Miami. His brother dies in the first episode and he and Dexter form an alliance. That’s basically all I can tell you, other than the fact that Jimmy Smits is going to go, I believe, places he’s never explored before as an actor."
Julie Benz (Rita, Darla [Buffy & Angel]) returns in Season Three and Phillips says:
"[She will be] pivotal to what goes on in the year and is part of what changes Dexter’s life."
But Dexter won't find his soul, reports Phillips. If we did that the series would die and no one wants that.

I'm very much looking forward to the return of Dexter later this year.


News: Moonlight's Sliver Bullet

Its official, Moonlight will not be returning to our screens. No networks were interested in picking up the show and the sets have been pulled down. A true shame...

It’s officially one and done for fan favorite vampire drama Moonlight. We were told today that all last ditch efforts to save the show were tried, but ultimately no takers were found for a second season. Direct TV, TNT, SCi Fi etc etc etc all passed. The sets have been taken down and the soundstage has been given over to new CBS series The Mentalist. The cast has been let go to pursue other projects. I know the CBS brass loves Alex O’Loughlin so I’d bet he lands on another project soon. Just my two cents. What CBS top rated drama could use an interjection of youth and is in need of bringing a different demo to the series?? How about CSI? Wouldn’t Alex make a great addition to the team?

News: New Amsterdam's Fate Sealed?

A show I really enjoyed earlier this year was New Amsterdam. But it would appeal that Virtuality" and has been cast in the lead role.

Seeing that Nikolaj has secured continued work it would appear he would be commited and unable to resume the role of John Amsterdam.

It was great while it latested, thanks for the memories.

News: Dexter Morgan is coming to Oz!

Dexter Morgan is coming to Australia. One of my favourite Television Series Dexter is finally coming to Australian Television in all its uncut glory.

On the 6th of July Channel Ten will be showing Dexter which is one of the modern day gems of television which seem to be few and far between.

Do yourself a favour and give this series a go. You will not be disappointed!

Dexter is an American television drama series based on the novel Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay and adapted for television by Emmy Award-winning screenwriter James Manos, Jr.

When Miami blood splatter expert Dexter Morgan is not solving murders, he's a serial killer committing them.

Orphaned at the age of four and harboring a traumatic secret, Dexter is adopted by a police officer who recognises Dexter's homicidal tendencies and guides his son to channel his gruesome passion for human vivisection in a constructive way - by killing those heinous perpetrators who are above the law or who have slipped through the cracks of justice.

A respected member of the police force, a perfect gentleman and a man with a soft spot for children, it's hard not to like Dexter. Although his drive to kill is unflinching, he struggles to emulate normal emotions he doesn't feel, and to keep up his appearance as a caring, socially responsible human being.

DEXTER is based on the compelling novel "Darkly Dreaming Dexter" by Jeff Lindsay, a South Florida native.
