Homeland , Dexter get return dates

Date March 12, 2012

NEW YORK (TheWrap.com) - What will Dexter's sister do after catching him in the middle of a murder? And will "Homeland" agent Carrie remember the evidence that Brody has terrorist ties after her shock treatments? You'll get the answers to both questions on Sunday, September 30.

Showtime announced Monday that both "Dexter" and "Homeland" will return then, when they'll again share a night. "Dexter" returns for its seventh season and "Homeland" for its second.

It's a good thing for fans of both shows, since they ended on serious cliffhangers. Dexter's (Michael C. Hall) sister, Deborah (Jennifer Carpenter), realized she's in love with her adopted brother -- and then caught him dispatching the Doomsday Killer.

The first season of "Homeland," meanwhile, ended with Sgt. Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) refusing to carry out a terrorist plot, and disgraced and deactivated CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) undergoing shock treatments to treat her mental illness. But she had an important realization about Brody just as the procedure began.

"Showtime" is also eagerly awaiting the series' return: "Homeland" averaged a strong 4.4 million weekly viewers across platforms in its first season, and its finale was one of the highest rated for a first season in network history, earning 5 million viewers. "Dexter," meanwhile, had its highest-rated season ever, averaging 5.5 million weekly viewers.
