Showtime just announced their slate of con programming and as expected, Dexter is back again. The less adored but still well liked Shameless is also returning, though Weeds is skipping the con entirely this year as it heads into its final season. I never heard a great deal of love for Weeds at con’s past, but I’m sure at least a few people will miss it.
For Dexter fans, it sounds like they have a great panel in store with Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Carpenter, Yvonne Strahovski and executive producers John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton & Scott Buck. Strahovski is sure to bring in some Chuck love and they’ll even be showing the first two minutes of the premiere. It all goes down Thursday, July 12th in Ballroom 20.
Meanwhile for Shameless, Showtime is bringing William H. Macy, Emmy Rossum, Justin Chatwin, Jeremy Allen White, and executive producer John Wells with more surprise guests promised. That’s happening Saturday, July 14th in the Indigo Ballroom.
Here’s a bit more detail for Dexter, which Showtime is really focusing on this year:
Prior to the DEXTER panel, SHOWTIME will also debut the first chapter of the new season of the animated webisode series “Early Cuts: All In The Family,” narrated by Michael C. Hall, written by Dexter producer Scott Reynolds and illustrated by celebrated comic book artist David Mack. “Early Cuts: All In The Family” continues to tell important stories from Dexter Morgan’s past – this season written thematically to tie-in to the season six cliffhanger, as Dexter reflects back on other instances where his sister, Deb, has sensed his darkness. Satisfy your obsession with America’s favorite serial killer all weekend.
