Here’s all we know about season five of “Dexter,” so far: Julia Stiles, Peter Weller, Jonny Lee Miller, and Chris Vance (“Prison Break”) will all appear in the next season. I kind of hope that Weller isn’t the villain — he’s always the villain. I’d prefer to see Jonny Lee Miller in that role. No clue what role Stiles will have, though I’m assuming she’s too young to be much of a new love interest for Dexter.
There was also an image from the upcoming season released:
The assumption, of course, is that it’s Debra’s coffin. But we also know that somehow Debra will have a role in the next season, perhaps as a ghost, like “Dexter’s” father, or maybe the coffin is from a dream sequence and somehow Debra survived. I’d feel a little cheated by that.
If you’re wondering what direction the show will go next season, however, this new promo won’t provide any answers. But it is cool. And it does get us sufficiently excited for the show (and I’m hoping J.K. Barlow will return with recaps).
