Will Julia Stiles Return To Dexter??

| Filed under: TV News


Oh man! Here's hoping!

Sara Colleton, the producer of the hit series Dexter, recently revealed that although Julia Stiles' Lumen left the serial killer with a conscience in the fifth season finale, there's a possibility that she could return!

She explains:

"From the very beginning we knew that Lumen would leave Dexter. It's devastating for Dexter to lose her, and he has never wanted anything before like this. But at the same time there's something so incredibly direct about Lumen that when she tells him why she has to leave, it makes perfect sense to him. She's alive, so therefore the door is, of course, open [for her return]. Society holds women up to a different standard of behavior, so having a woman who wanted to avenge what was done to her and is single-minded about it was [difficult]. It's a thorny, hard character that is not feminine. And yet Julia played it so real that you care about her, and you end up rooting for her and for this odd romance [with Dexter]."

Wow! All very true!

Lumen was definitely a difficult character, given the circumstances in which she was introduced on the show, but she really grew on us as the season progressed!

We really hope they do bring her back at some point!

Dexter deserves to be happy!

What do U think? Did U like Lumen and Dexter together??

    I REALLY hope she comes back on the next season. Dexter finally found someone he can share all of his secrets with. He needs her….. I love this show! :-)

    I have to say she grew on me. I would love to see Dexter struggling with one of his kills and then Lumen coming in to save the day. That would be great to see her come back. I honestly think that would be better than someone like Rita with all that judgement.

    I really liked this season of Dexter, but I've never liked Julia Stiles as an actress. I tolerated the scenes with her in it, but she's not the reason I watched the show. I'll be dissapointed if she returns, despite the compelling story arc she represents. Besides, the reason for her departure was perfect, and in my mind, it was final. If only they'd chosen a different and far more capable actress, this season would have been exceptional.

    They were truly a great match on screen. I think that they should definitely bring Lumen (Julia) back!

  6. 6

    Yey! Although I don't think anyone can replace Rita, I love how Lumen knows who he is. I am more excited to see how Dexter's relationship with Quinn will go now that he knows Dexter killed that Detective.

    hmmm seems to me Dexter not only found Lumen, but Michael C. Hall found Julia Stiles.

    Re: annie0 – I agree I don't like Julia Stiles

    Are you kidding??? Julia Stiles was amazing as Lumen. I was really impressed! She was the best thing this season. Hated the finale, though. It Just seemed lazy writing the way she left. Completely inconsistent with the rest of they're history. But i think Julia was trully amazing!

  12. 12

    Unfortunately this season was probably the worst(most fans agree) even though the ratings didn't show it. Stiles was fine in the show(even though I'm not a fan), but they need to focus on Dexter and not some half baked romance. Rita was a major part of the first 4 seasons, but she wasn't a distraction for his character. You know Stiles will have to have big screen time just to satisfy her ego. That's not good in the long run.

  13. 13

    Yes, absolutely! This was another outstanding season and Lumen's character fit right in with the tone of the show. She understand's Dexter and doesn't judge him. He was able to show his REAL face to her. The only other person who knows who Dexter truly is was his father.

    Please bring her back!!!!!

  14. 14

    Dexter Rules!!!….

    I think season 3 was the worst, but i agree that this season was pretty bad. Bad writting. Too many loose ends and too many stories that solved poorly. The only good thing was Michael C. Hall and Julia's acting. Maybe Lumen's rejection will bring back the Dexter from season 1. That would be nice!

  16. 16

    She grew on me too but not totally-she's annoying-like Rita and the British chick (a few seasons back). Why can't they find an actress who is not annoying…..find someone affable please! BTW, Quinn is soooo doable!

  17. 17

    I don't care what anyone says this season was AMAZING! The finale, however, was not as intense at the rest of the season. It was bitter-sweet for me, I was disappointed Lumen left Dexter, but in reality for Lumen she really isn't like Dexter.. but in time we shall see if she comes back to Dexter after realizing she truly is changed forever and has her own dark passenger like Dex.. now that would be so interesting! Even if you don't like Julia Stiles, her character was pretty intense and kept us all interested.

    I don't like Julia Stiles as an actress, but I liked her character on the show. I don't think she needs to return, though. I thought the relationship was a great way to follow up Rita's murder on the show, but there's no reason for her to return.

  19. 19

    I partied all night long when i learnt she was leaving and now i should be hoping to see her back in the show ???? You better be FU**ING kidding me!

    didnt like her right away being on dexter…but her character really grew on me….loved the way the season ended…it was going to be hard for them to stay together and keep his normal life….love dexter!! so glad it was picked up for another season!!

  21. 21

    i def like dexter with lumen,. I didnt like rita with him. she was too innocent.
    I felt so bad for him when she dumped him! Im just not sure how the new season is gonna play out. its left WIDE open. if she comes back i mean whats the reason? the only thing is maybe dexter finds another love interest and lumen gets jealous and she kills the girl then dexter has to kill lumen… the girl who knows all his secrets…

    AH who knows LOL Im just glad hes coming back!

  22. 22

    yesyesyes dexter deserves to be happy!!! i was weeping for him almost worse than with rita! i truly think dexter will beat his dark passenger and i believe love - which dexter's father harry, tried to teach him he was uncapable of- will help be the factor, because he IS capable of love. dexter may think he's a sociopath but no he really isnt. he wasnt born with a sociopath's tendency, life made him that way, and life will bring him right back as we saw with rita's death, his love for harrison, and desire to be a good father.

    lumen's character really didnt sit well with me at first. i thought she was twitchy and weird kinda like kristen stewart… buuut she was suppose to be twitchy, she got better as her character did and i guess now its normal.

    SOOO PLEASE showtime dexter writers, bring dexter some happiness let him beat his dark passenger and have love and happiness

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Julia Stiles.. I hope she does return- shes so cute and quirky!

    Re: Picote – I agree!!

    Julia Stiles is not one of the actress always on the forefront of my mind, when I think of the few actresses I really like. BUT, every single time I've seen her in something, I am always so pleasantly surprised and impressed how she captures the character. There is something very honest and uniquely intuitive in her; she's just an extremely talented and underrated performer. And, I love that she keeps herself out of the tabloids and off the radar. She was incredible in her role as Lumen. She is an incredible actress. I hope we see more of her.

  26. 26

    i LOVE Dexter.
    i liked the Lumen character after awhile but the last episode kinda made the entire season a waste of time…so no i wouldn't like to see her back.

    NOOOO!!!!!!! DON'T BRING HER BACK!!! UGH!!! Julia Stiles is a MAN. If she is brought back for any later seasons of Dexter, I can't watch it anymore. She's the most annoying person and worst actress on the planet. She peaked in "10Things I hate about you" and needs to find a new line of work. Perhaps pretending she's a drag queen, since it's not too far off the mark with her busted face & deep voice.

    Re: dreamboat – so well put! i completely agree!!! Julia Stiles belongs in the 90s. She needs to find a new line of work since acting is NOT her forte. She is so not easy on the eyes no matter how much you try to put lipstick on that pig!

    I never liked anything Julia was in.. she was always in a teenybopper movie. I was shocked to see her cast on Dexter and I ended up being very impressed with her performance. I thought she was great. Bring her back!
