In what may be the earliest announcement for fall premiere dates I have ever seen, Showtime has announced the the seventh season of Dexter and the second season of Homeland will premiere on Sunday September 30th.
First up is Dexter, with the show’s seventh season premiering at 9/8c. Dexter stars Michael C. Hall as a complicated and conflicted blood-spatter expert for the Miami police department who moonlights as a serial killer. The series also stars Jennifer Carpenter, Desmond Harrington, C.S. Lee, Lauren Vélez, David Zayas and James Remar. John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, Scott Buck, Manny Coto, Tim Schlattmann, Wendy West and Michael C. Hall are the executive producers of the series for season seven.
That will be followed by the second season of critically acclaimed series Homeland, which will premiere at 10/9c. Based on the original Israeli series Hatufim, Homeland stars Clare Danes as Carrie, a CIA officer dealing with bi-polar disorder, who becomes convinced that the intelligence that led to the rescue of Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis), a U.S. soldier who had been missing and presumed dead for eight years, was a setup and may be connected to an Al-Qaeda plot to be carried out on American soil. The series also stars Morena Baccarin, David Harewood, Diego Klattenhoff, David Marciano, Navid Negahban, Jamey Sheridan, Morgan Saylor, Jackson Pace and Mandy Patinkin.
