Showtime sets date for return of 'Homeland' and 'Dexter'


The wait’s far from over, but at least now fans of Showtime’s “Homeland” and “Dexter” have a date to mark on their calendars: Sept. 30.

That’s when we can expect to see the second season of the fall’s breakout hit — premium cable division — about the cat-and-mouse game between a U.S. Marine (Damian Lewis) who returned from captivity as a hero and the bipolar CIA agent (Claire Danes) who suspected he was a terrorist.

“Homeland” episodes will premiere at 10 p.m. Sundays, preceded by the seventh season of “Dexter,” which stars Michael C. Hall as a sympathetic serial killer with a code of conduct all his own.

Production on both begins this spring, according to Showtime, with “Homeland” shooting in North Carolina and Israel — where the show that inspired first aired — and the Miami-set “Dexter” continuing to film in Los Angeles.

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
