In anticipation of the fifth season, "Dexter" has given fans five weeks to catch up with the fourth season by releasing the DVD and Blu-Ray on August 17. A release party was held on Saturday, August 14 at National Hotel, Miami Beach, Florida.
Stars from the acclaimed series such as Lauren Velez, C.S. Lee, and David Zayas were in attendance, accompanied by two models wearing Dexter's signature plastic wrap and police line each. To set the mood as well, a puddle of blood was placed where the stars took pictures for the press. Spotted coming as guest are Vincent DePaul and Lee's wife Lara Cho.
The fourth season of "Dexter" took viewers by surprise with its twisted ending. Michael C. Hall earned Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series - Drama at the Golden Globes while John Lithgow nabbed Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.
Dexter is now a family man, and Rita has given birth to a baby boy named Harrison. The family has moved to the suburbs, where Dexter struggles to reconcile his new life with his killing urges. Special Agent Frank Lundy returns to hunt down the "Trinity Killer" who he believes always murders three people in a very specific sequence: a young woman in a bathtub, an older mother of two falling to her death, and a father of two bludgeoned to death.
Showtime did not specify the special features included in the DVD and Blu-Ray versions. But according to NewsDay, there are sample episodes of Showtime series "The Tudors", "Californication" and "Lock 'N Load" plus the discs can be used to connect to Internet cast interviews.
"Dexter" returns to Showtime on Sunday, September 26.
