Dexter season 6 is currently in production, and I'm very much looking forward to seeing where Dexter and these characters go from season 5. There is some new information on the season which will set Dexter at a new point in his life. Season 6 will not start from where season 5 left off, the upcoming season places Dexter a year after the events that took place in season 5. Executive producer Sara Colleton explains this decision,
We thought a clean start to this season would be to jump ahead a year, so he's not getting over Lumen [Julia Stiles], and he's not still in the throes of dealing with the Rita [Julie Benz] thing. We wanted to jump ahead a year and find that Dexter has gotten his groove back. He's gotten over Rita and Lumen.
I was hoping that Dexter would get back to his old self, and it's been looking like we are going to see that. Colleton continues saying,
When we open up Season 6, we find Dexter in a very positive place in his life. It's like the Dexter we know and love is back, and he still wants to play.
As for his son Harrison, this is something that he will obviously still have to deal with. Here's some insight on what we can expect to see from Dexter and Harrison's relationship.
There are things in life that Dexter's dealing with and one of them is that Harrison is now 2 years old and he has to go to school. There are things that he has to start thinking about with his son, and he's been keenly aware of what it is that he doesn't want to pass on to Harrison, namely his Dark Passenger, but Dexter has no idea what it is that he does want to pass on.
This sounds like it's going to be one hell of a great season, and I can't wait to throw myself back into to the crazy world of Dexter! What are your thoughts on these new season 6 details?
