On Blu-ray Disc and DVD August 14


HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (May 30, 2012) – America’s favorite serial killer is back for a new season of thrilling drama and unexpected twists when DEXTER: THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON arrives on Blu-ray Disc and DVD August 14 from Showtime Networks,
CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution.  Featuring gripping performances from special guest stars Emmy
® and Golden Globe® nominee Yasiin Bey, Colin Hanks (King Kong) and Academy Award® nominee Edward James Olmos (”Battlestar Galactica”), catch up on every suspenseful episode of the Emmy-nominated sixth season before new episodes premiere on SHOWTIME on September 30.

Golden Globe winner* Michael C. Hall continues to captivate audiences with his portrayal of mild-mannered, yet grisly serial killer Dexter Morgan.  It has been a year since the fifth season’s emotional conclusion, and Dexter has finally come to terms with his identity.  As he tries to move on, his existence is shattered when he crosses paths with an enemy unlike any that he’s faced before.  The new adversary, a delusional religious zealot with unflinching convictions, draws Dexter into a dangerous game that could end in disaster.  With powerful performances by series stars Jennifer Carpenter, Desmond Harrington, C.S. Lee, Lauren Velez, David Zayas and James Remar, DEXTER: THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON is a killer good time.
