This might well be the earliest fall premiere date announcement ever, but we’ll take it.

Showtime has set return dates for Dexter season 7 and Homeland season 2. Both will return Sunday, Sept. 30, 2012, with Dex leading into the Golden Globe-winning Homeland. So set arrange your vacation plans accordingly.
