Perhaps the most exciting thing coming out this week is the highly-anticipated Dexter revival, which will see the return of Dexter Morgan, our favorite serial killer. The revival is also set to feature the return of dead characters like Deb Morgan (Jennifer Carpenter) and the Trinity Killer (John Lithgow), although we don’t know what capacity they’re back in yet.
