What to Watch TV Edition: 'Homeland,' 'Dexter,' 'Handy Manny,' and more!

Showtime

This weekend you can see a lot of Latinos on television if you’re tuned to the right channels. We’re turning you in to four different television shows starring some of our fave stars—from the return of America’s favorite serial killer to a sweet, animated handyman. Check out our line-up below:

Homeland airing Sunday at 10 p.m. ET/PT: Brazilian actress Morena Baccarin, known for her role in ABC’s alien invasion drama V (which was canceled), joins the cast of Homeland this season. In the Showtime thriller series, the 32-year-old plays the strong wife of Scott Brody, a Marine Sergeant who returns home almost a decade after he went missing in Iraq.

Dexter airing Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT: Latinos are sprinkled throughout the highly anticipated sixth season of Dexter. Seasoned Lauren Velez and David Zayas return to their roles and we were very excited to find out that legendary Mexican American actor Edward James Olmos will guest star as a theology professor. In addition, part-Puerto Rican and part-Mexican actress Aimee Garcia plays the nanny to Dexter's (Michael C. Hall) son, Harrison.

Handy Manny airing Monday at 1 p.m. ET/PT: If you think Wilmer Valderrama’s voice is cute, wait till you hear it layered behind an adorable, animated handyman named Manny. The Colombian-Venezuelan actor lends his voice to Manny in Disney’s Handy Manny, a cartoon series that centers on the handyman and his talking tools. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, a 45-minute special will see Manny embark on a mission to help his brother save their family’s auto repair shop from destruction. The episode is titled "Handy Manny Great Garage Rescue."

How To Make It In America airing Sunday at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT: The comedy-drama about twenty-somethings hustling their way into the fashion industry is back. Dominican actor Victor Rasuk, who stars as Cam Calderon in the HBO series, visited Latina’s office recently and spoke to about the new season, which he described as having no dead space. “You’re going to be shocked at what goes on,” he said, “it’s going to be so dope!”
