Showtime's president David Nevins has dropped some hints about the upcoming sixth season of Dexter
Speaking to TV Line
, Nevins suggested that the relationship between Dexter (Michael C Hall
) and his sister Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) will be explored in more depth when the show returns.
"There will be a microscope on the Deb [and] Dexter relationship this season," he said. "Over time you're going to see that relationship evolve and change, no questions about it."
Nevins also revealed that the show will be going back to its "roots", saying: "Dexter
this season will be in some ways a return to the Dexter
that you've seen in the early seasons. There's a really interesting story and journey that he's going to be on this year. There's going to be some degree of getting back to his roots."
He added that Dexter will not be pitted against one "big bad" in the sixth season.
"There's one interesting story that will move through the season, and it will be cast very interestingly, but it's not exactly that one person," he teased.Dexter
