Damn, I love DEXTER, such a great freakin show! Kinda bummed that this upcoming season is supposedly the last but we’ll always have Blu-ray and with that perfect segue I bring you news of the upcoming release of Season Seven on Blu-ray and DVD. The press release drives the news home so lets take a look, shall we:
Shocking secrets are revealed to potentially deadly consequences in the pulse-pounding newest season of the acclaimed original SHOWTIME series, DEXTER: THE SEVENTH SEASON, arriving on Blu-ray Disc and DVD May 14 from Showtime Networks, CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution.
Highlighted by performances from guest stars including Ray Stevenson (“Rome”), Yvonne Strahovski (“Chuck”), Jason Gedrick (Backdraft, Iron Eagle) and Santiago Cabrera (“Heroes”), the gripping seventh season begins in an explosive fashion as Dexter’s sister Debra (Jennifer Carpenter) witnesses his ritualistic slaying of a killer. Now she knows the secret of his “Dark Passenger,” his undeniable thirst for blood, and the Code that their father Harry (James Remar) instilled in him as a young boy. But as she tries to reconcile the unfathomable idea that her beloved, mild-mannered brother is Miami’s most notorious serial killer, Dexter is still pulled by his natural impulses to seek out the guilty and exact his brand of vigilante justice, leading him on the trail of a brutal Ukrainian mobster (Stevenson). Along the way, Dexter meets Hannah McKay (Strahovski), a strong, independent woman with a dark past that she’s struggled to put behind her. As a turn of events leads Miami Metro Homicide to ask for her help in solving some old cases, Dexter works with her and begins to wonder if there’s more to this woman than she’s professed.
Season 7 also stars series regulars Jennifer Carpenter, Desmond Harrington, C.S. Lee, Lauren Velez, David Zayas and James Remar. Catch up on every episode of DEXTER: THE SEVENTH SEASON before new episodes premiere on SHOWTIME on June 30.
