Showtime sets premiere dates for 'Dexter' and 'Homeland'
Mark your calendars: There will be blood Oct. 2
Showtime announced Thursday at Comic-Con 2011 that the sixth season of 'Dexter" will make its fall return then.
It will be followed by the debut of the new Claire Danes psychological thriller "Homeland," about a CIA officer (Danes) who becomes convinced that there's a conspiracy tied to Al Qaeda that led to the rescue of a U.S. soldier (Damian Lewis) who had been missing and presumed dead.
