‘Dexter’ executive producer dishes on next season

Still. Can’t. Breathe.
If you saw Sunday’s “Dexter” season finale, it’s possible you’re still breathing into a paper sack because the thing that was this close to happening is perhaps the biggest game-changer we can imagine. But here’s what you don’t know: It might still be on the way.

So where does Showtime’s gripping serial-killer series go from here? Here’s what executive producer Sara Colleton spilled to me:
Deb will find out Dexter’s secret

At least, it certainly sounds like that is the over-arching plan, based on what Colleton told me about Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) coming (fuzzy) face to (fuzzy) face with her bloody-knife-weilding vigilante brother in tonight’s season ender.

When asked if Deb will ever find out about Dexter’s (Michael C. Hall) secret, Colleton replies: “At some point that is an inevitable thing, and that will be an important season in Dexter’s history for that to happen.” Based on the near heart attack many of us suffered when Deb busted in on Dexter and Lumen’s crime scene tonight, that’s a pretty good bet!

Dexter & Deb are Calling it Quits!

Don’t worry. They will both be back for season 6 of Dexter as the odd sibling pair we so dearly love.

However, the actors who portray them have filed for divorce.

Michael and Jennifer, who wed in Dec 2008, are calling the split amicable and have reportedly been split up for an unspecified amount of time.

One can only assume they wanted to wait until the season finale to make the official announcement.

Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall are calling it quits.

The Dexter stars, who play brother and sister on the Showtime series, are ending their two-year marriage, their reps tell Entertainment Weekly.

“Having been separated for some time, Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall have filed for divorce,” the reps say in a joint statement.

Wonderful LA Times article about the Dexter finale

‘Dexter’ executive producer discusses the fifth-season finale’s heartbreak and healing

The genius of this Showtime series and Michael C. Hall’s Emmy-nominated performance has always resided in how much viewers love and root for this serial killer. Last season, we were punched in the gut when Dexter discovered his wife murdered in their bathtub. Now, after a season of mourning and grief, again there is pain. But this time, it’s arguably more profound.

We’ve spent five years hoping that Dexter indeed will be able to experience human connection, and to love and be fully loved. And he came so close with Lumen, played spectacularly by Julia Stiles in her first TV role. But the death of Jordan Chase (the strikingly creepy Johnny Lee Miller) brings Lumen closure and a realization that she is not like Dexter and cannot be his life partner. Their goodbye scene was absolutely heartbreaking.
