dexter season 6 promo 1 New 'Dexter' Season 6 promo pics: Have a killer day“Dexter” comes back for its murderous sixth season in a little over a week. The theme of the season is religion, with several new faces joining the cast as recurring characters that have religious leanings, like Mos Def and Edward James Olmos.

In these new promos, star Michael C. Hall is definitely working the religious imagery, with the above Jesus pose and the below angel/devil thing happening. The Angel of Death? Is that Dexter Morgan?

We also like the last one, which isn’t religious at all, but certainly is the tongue-in-cheek humor we’ve come to expect from the show. “Dexter” returns Sunday, Oct. 2 at 9 p.m. on Showtime. Are you getting excited? We are.
