A lot of things to update with! First off, here is a list of confirmed new characters as well as their actors:
- Professor Gellar - Edward James Olmos
- Travis Marshall - Colin Hanks
- Lisa Marshall - Molly Parker
- Mike Anderson - Billy Brown
- Ryan Chambers - Brea Grant
- Louis Greene - Josh Cooke
- Brother Sam - Mos Def
- Jamie Batista - Aimee Garcia
The Season is set to kick off a YEAR after the previous season (rather than a previously rumored 2-3 year jump). This means that Harrison Morgan will be two rather than old enough to attend Pre-School or Kindergarten. With a change in thinkers (to Scott Buck in particular), this Season is going in a new, fresh direction that is sure to please fans. Returning to his roots, Dexter will meet up with Professor Gellar, a religious studies teacher who also happens to be a serial killer teaching his beliefs to others such as Travis Marshall (an artifacts expert) and possibly Brother Sam. Dexter is intrigued by the new serial killer, who feels that his own actions are just and right...but for what reasons is why Dexter aims to discover more.
Nanny Sonya departs (for what exec. producer Scott Buck practically says they "used her up" already, in other words wasting an opportunity) and Angel Batista's little sister Jamie joins the group as her replacement. With her upbeat, happy and can-do attitude vs. Dexter's serious, secretive lifestyle...this will lead to some complications. In addition, Chicago cop Mike Anderson joins the group as what some fans are referring to as "Doakes 2.0" from his description (being a hard-ass cop who takes lip from nobody). Where he will fit in is yet to be seen...but Vince Masuka gets an intern in Louis Greene and possibly partners with Ryan Chambers, a character said "to be seen in a lab coat".
To close this off, how about that infamous promo? The song in the video is End Times by Weekend FYI.
