"Is it possible... I serve a... higher purpose?"
Showtime have released a minute-long promo for the sixth season of Dexter. There's no footage from the show itself, it's just Dexter (Michael C. Hall) walking down the aisle of a church in his apron, surrounded by religious statues, as his voice-over chews on the idea he's effectively doing God's work...
It now seems incontestable that season 6 is going to tackle the character's religious side, which sounds like rich territory still to explore. At the very least the show will have some fun with religious iconography and spiritual themes. I still think Dexter's best days are behind it, but the eponymous character's so compelling I'll be back for this. Of course I will.
Dexter season 6 premieres on Showtime this autumn, most likely late-September.
