New Dexter trailer for season five asks: How does a serial killer survive the murder of a close relative?



Dexter-season5 Fans of Showtime's serial killer drama Dexter at the ginormous Comic Con gathering already got a peek at the trailer for the show's fifth season, which suggests the series picks up right after last season's shocking final scene.

Now I'm posting the trailer here, which contains a huge spoiler for anyone watching the shows on DVD.

In that brutal moment, Michael C. Hall's Dexter Morgan discovered that the serial killer he had just dispatched, John Lithgow's twisted and manipulative Trinity Killer, had made it his home and killed his wife before Morgan caught up with him.

(Fear not, the actress who plays Morgan's wife, Julie Benz, now plays Michael Chiklis' wife in ABC's series about a middle class family which suddenly discovers they have super powers, No Ordinary Family. See the trailer here )

Showtime has finally released the trailer, in time for me to quiz the cast on Thursday when they show up for the TV Critics Press Tour.

Until then, check out this crackling preview and let me know if you've got any questions for this sterling cast. Below the new season trailer, check out the trailer for the animated series Showtime has also built around Dexter.
