Lauren Velez Dishes on the New Season of 'Dexter'

Javier Morgado

Lauren Velez stopped by the Latina offices and of course, we had to grill the Boricua actress on all things Dexter related! Although the bubbly and warm Velez isn't allowed to say too much about season 5 of the hit Showtime drama, she gave us some scoop on Lt. Maria LaGuerta's struggle to keep her team of detectives on track, April Lee Hernandez's new role and how she thinks her onscreen relationship with Sgt. Batista is going to play out. Dexter premieres this Sunday, September 26th at 9PM on Showtime.

Check out the interview below with entertainment writer Lee Hernandez and find out what Lauren Velez has to say about LaGuerta's future:

About this author

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
