TV series and motion pictures have ceased to be associated with entertainment programmes only, but are often suitable for an in-depth examination and evaluation of various social issues. Dealing with religious topics thus forms part of the movie worlds standard repertoire. The apocalypse and the end of the world are popular themes in todays mass media. Since the beginnings of motion picture and TV, apocalyptic content has been used in various different ways. In many especially American films and TV series, (post)apocalyptic topics and elements occur. The realization and depiction of the Book of Revelation and its apocalyptic motives was of central importance in the sixth season of the TV series “Dexter”, which was broadcasted on American TV in 2011. Aside from themes alluding to the end of the world, general religious topics and questions of faith were also implemented and dealt with in the series. This thesis shows that these themes and topics were by no means invented by the US-American film- and TV market, but, (following a controversial and contested process of canonization), are part and parcel of the Bible. After a brief look at the range of topics originating from the Book of Revelation and dealt with in “Dexter”, image and text sources are compared. The methods of filmic interpretation and the handling of religious elements in “Dexter Season 6” constitute the gist of this thesis. The change of medium from text (the Bible) to film adaption (“Dexter Season 6”) is illustrated and analyzed, and a description and analysis of the cinematic language applied, such as music and sound, camera work, image selection, etc., rounds off this illustration. An examination of the audiences reception and perception of religious themes and the resulting effect on viewing figures forms the conclusion of this thesis.
