Big changes for Season 6 of Dexter, with a new Showrunner

I have to wonder if the change is due to the very mixed reviews of Season 5. That even though the show garnered it’s highest viewer ratings ever, they may not be taking any chances. I liked Season 5, I actually think it was the perfect style of storyline that needed to follow Rita’s brutal murder and just the right amount of heart that a serial killer needs when his entire world is turned upside down.

In some ways I think the show was a victim of it’s own amazing success. Season 4 was pure perfection in every way (thank you John Lithgow). We already knew it would be an almost impossible feat to top that shocking Season 4 finale. Even still, we can easily forgive this past season for only being “really really good“.

‘Dexter’ undergoing show-runner change for season six

“Dexter” may be one of the most active shows on TV right now in terms of getting headlines — which is a bit of a surprise considering that the series itself ended a week ago. According to a new report, Scott Buck (who has been a part of the series since season two) will be replacing Chip Johannessen as the primarily show-runner for season six, which is slated to air next fall. This is the second time in two years that the Michael C. Hall series has underwent such a change.

So why is “Dexter” suddenly becoming a revolving door?

‘Dexter’: Michael C. Hall open to ‘Glee,’ ‘performs ‘Christmas Carol’ (video)

When you are appearing on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, more often than with other shows you have to be prepared to bust out a few notes. Dexter star Michael C. Hall was just that, and during the interview with Jimmy (which you can see to the left) he was asked to sing one of his character’s favorite Christmas carols.

With that in mind, he started to bust out a rendition of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” that may be the creepest version of a Christmas carol in the history of Christmas caroling. He changed a few lines to give it that serial killer feel, but even with the normal ones there was a tinge of anguish there as the award-winning actor sang along. He then later claimed he would look at being on Glee if he was ever asked, as he does have a musical background.
