Season 4 Overview:
Last season concluded with Dexter marrying a pregnant Rita (Julie Benz) and admitting to himself that his weddings vows “to be the best husband and father he could be” are absolutely true. In season 4, Dexter appears to have everything he could possibly want except the one thing he actually needs —which is time to kill.

Although diaper duty appears to have pushed Dexter’s little killing hobby to the backseat, that’s not to say that he won’t be giving in to his urges. After all, season 4 has a new villain on the loose and he comes in the form of John Lithgow. As reported in the past, the 3rd Rock from the Sun star will be playing a prolific serial killer known as the “Trinity Killer”-he kills in threes- and leads an unassuming double life similar to Dexter’s. Season 4 will also bring about the return of Keith Carradine’s FBI Agent Lundy, who is back in Miami to track down the Trinity Killer.
