Homeland and Dexter to return in September, relieve long summer drought of terrorism and incest
For those who are already dreading a long, hot summer free of incest—provided that itch hasn’t already been scratched by Game Of Thrones, of course—Showtime has confirmed that your day of relief will be September 30, when serial-killer drama Dexter finally picks up from last season’s cliffhanger and begins the long labor of justifying how it’s going to drag this out for at least two more years. Slightly more interesting and far less predictable, Homeland will return the same night, picking up the gloriously shattered pieces of its first-season storyline and doling out even more conspiracy and crazy talk. No plot details have been released yet, obviously, although Deadline did report recently that Jamey Sheridan had been upped to a series regular, so his Vice-President Walden character will obviously be playing an even larger part in aiding Brody’s political career while furthering his own. The press release also notes that the show is filming in both Israel and North Carolina, suggesting the season will explore some of the bitter struggle and omnipresent sense of danger that comes from living in a powderkeg region such as North Carolina.
