Hey I'm Carissa Loethen with About.com and today we're talking about the Showtime hit series Dexter.  
The series is based on the novel, 'Darkly Dreaming Dexter', written by Jeff Lindsay. Screenwriter James Manos, Jr. developed the novels into the television drama in 2006. The show is currently in its seventh season.
 The series is based on a blood spatter analyst, named Dexter, who works for the Miami-Dade Police Department. Dexter works for the police but also works to feed his “dark passenger” of being a serial killer.
Michael C. Hall plays the seemingly likeable Dexter. Hall won a Golden Globe in 2010 for his role. Despite doubling as crime solver and serial killer, he manages to follow a moral code his late father Harry Morgan taught him; to only kill those who deserve it.  
In the first season, Dexter helps his sister Debra Morgan get a job with the police department. Throughout the season you learn that Dexter is adopted and Deb and he are not blood related. Debra is played by Jennifer Carpenter, who in real life is Hall's ex-wife.
Rita Bennett is Dexter's girlfriend. She has two children, named Astor and Cody, from a previous marriage. This relationship adds some humor to the show as Dexter has a hard time relating to raising a family, while also being a serial killer.  
 As the season carries on Dexter learns of another serial killer dubbed the ice-truck killer. At the end of the season we learn Debra's doctor boyfriend is the ice-truck killer. To add another twist, that ice-truck killer is revealed to be Dexter's real brother.
Dexter is forced to put his brother on “his table” or kill him. The second season introduces a new serial killer called the bay harbor butcher, so named because all the victims end up in the bay. The bay harbor butcher is, in reality, Dexter. He is forced to pin the killings on a co-worker by the name of Sergeant James Doakes.
 Fast forward to the 4th season, Dexter is now married to Rita and have have a baby together named Harrison. This season's bad guy is named Trinity because he kills his victims in three's. Trinity is played by John Lithgow. Dexter eventually kills Trinity but not before one of the series' biggest twists. Before Dexter kills Trinity, Trinity kills Dexter's wife Rita in the season finale.
The next biggest turn in the series came in the season 6 finale. Debra discovered that she is in love with her non-blood related brother Dexter. When she goes to tell him how she feels, Debra see's Dexter killing a victim.
While the show has been rather successful, Showtime has announced the series will end after it's 8th season.
