Dexter is a crime/thriller drama series about a likeable forensics expert for the Miami Metro Police Department who moonlights as a serial killer with his own brand of justice - he kills people he believes deserve it.
Orphaned at the age of four and harboring a traumatic secret, Dexter was adopted by a police officer who recognized Dexter’s homicidal tendencies and guided his son to channel his gruesome passion for human vivisection in a constructive way - by killing perpetrators that are above the law or who have slipped through the cracks of justice.
A respected member of the police force, a perfect gentleman and a man with a soft spot for children, Dexter's world reveals an unusual exploration into the mind of a sociopathic killer.
With an unflinching drive to kill, Dexter struggles to emulate normal emotions he doesn’t feel so that he can keep up his appearance as a caring, socially responsible human being.
Six months after killing LaGuerta, a shattered and guilt-ridden Deb has quit her job at Miami Metro and joined a private investigation company. In her absence, Batista has returned from retirement and become Lieutenant.
Miami Metro investigates a new serial killer, the "Brain Surgeon", and receives unexpected help from psychopath expert Evelyn Vogel (Charlotte Rampling), who appears to have a special interest in Dexter.
The series also stars Desmond Harrington, C.S. Lee, Aimee Garcia, David Zayas, Geoff Pierson and James Remar.
Produced by Showtime, Dexter is executive produced by John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, Scott Buck, Manny Coto, Tim Schlattmann, Wendy West, Jace Richdale and Michael C. Hall.
