Dexter returns to The Movie Network and Movie Central

It’s been a killer couple of years for Dexter Morgan, but he’s back and feeling like his old self until he delves into unfamiliar territory: spirituality.

Astral’s The Movie Network (Eastern Canada) and Corus Entertainment ‘s Movie Central (Western Canada) present Season 6 of the award-winning, critically acclaimed drama Dexter , premiering Sunday, October 2 at 10:00 p.m. ET/MT .

The new season opens with mild mannered criminologist-cum-grisly serial killer Dexter Morgan (series star and executive producer, and Golden Globe ® – and Screen Actors Guild Award-winner Michael C. Hall ) feeling renewed, re-energized and re-focused on putting deserving criminals on his table.

But his existence is shattered when he crosses paths with an enemy unlike any he’s faced before: a delusional religious zealot with unflinching convictions. This new adversary soon draws Dexter into a dangerous game that causes him to explore the nature of faith, something he never thought he had use for.

Joining the cast as guest stars for Season 6 are Emmy ® and Golden Globe Award-winning actor Edward James Olmos as a brilliant, charismatic professor of religious studies; Emmy ® and Golden Globe nominated actor Mos (formerly known as Mos Def) as Brother Sam, a hardened ex-con who claims to have found religion, yet seems to continually find himself surrounded by violence; and Colin Hanks as an expert on ancient artifacts who gets linked to a series of grisly murders in Miami. Dexter also stars Jennifer Carpenter, Desmond Harrington, C.S. Lee, Lauren Vélez, David Zayas, and James Remar.
