The seventh season of the serial killer show and the sophomore season of the psychological thriller series will both debut on Sunday, September 30.
Summer is yet to come, but Showtime has unveiled the premiere dates for two of its fall programs. The network announced that both "Dexter" and "Homeland" will return on Sunday, September 30, with the veteran show leading at 9 P.M. ET/PT and the sophomore series following at 10 P.M. ET/PT.
Both "Dexter" and "Homeland" will start production this spring. The former will continue to shoot in Los Angeles, while the latter will shoot on location in Israel and in North Carolina.
The upcoming season 7 of "Dexter" will feature "fundamentally different dynamics" now that Deb has learned a shocking truth about her brother. Executive producer Manny Coto has said, "Debra has a big decision to make: 'Do I turn him in? What do I do about this? I've just seen him kill somebody.' That's the first thing we're going to be dealing with."
As for "Homeland", its second season will pick up where the first season finale left off. The last time people saw Claire Danes' Carrie Anderson was when she underwent intense electroshock therapy for her bi-polar disorder. Meanwhile, Damian Lewis' Sgt. Brody infiltrated the government as a terrorist.
