Dexter Morgan is back and ready to avenge his previous victims. Showtime’s Dexter: New Blood, a six-episode limited series, premieres on November 7th. Dexter has changed a lot in a decade, but at his core, he’s always been the same.
Fans are eagerly awaiting the return of Dexter, which was unexpectedly announced in 2020. Your favorite serial killer and his sister, Deb Morgan, will return in the new limited series. Here at HollywoodLife, we keep you up to date on all things Dexter: New Blood.
‘Dexter: New Blood’ Cast
The actor who played Dexter Morgan in the original series is returning for the one-off. In addition, he isn’t the only familiar face returning for the reboot.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Carpenter, who played Deb Morgan in the Showtime limited series, will return. The original Trinity Killer actors, Jennifer, and John Lithgow are “expected to appear in flashback scenes as the Dexter update has no plans of rewriting the show’s original canon.”
In a post-mortem interview with THR for the series finale, Jennifer left the possibility of reprising her role as Deb just a crack open. According to her, the script would have to be “extraordinary” and “many, many years in the future.” People do not return from the dead, so I don’t know if that’s possible.
In an interview with Deadline, John revealed that Jennifer would also be returning for the reboot. Michael Carpenter, Jennifer Carpenter, and [showrunner] Clyde Phillips were all there, and it was wonderful to see them all again,” the Emmy winner said.
Dexter Morgan was a character played by Michael Emerson, who told Variety in 2018 that he had no immediate, definitive plans to return to the role. Following Michael’s initial interview, the showrunners searched for a story that would justify bringing the show back.
Showtime Networks Inc. President of Entertainment Gary said in a statement, “We would only revisit this unique character if we could find a creative take that was truly worthy of the brilliant and original series.” That’s great news, and we can’t wait to get started on the filming and show the world what we’ve found!”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jamie Chung and Oscar Wahlberg have joined the cast of the revival. “True-crime podcaster from Los Angeles” Molly will be played by Jamie. “Captain of the Iron Lake High School wrestling team” Zach will be played by Oscar. If you’re looking to have some fun, he’s your guy. As a “gateway” to the “in-crowd,” he includes the daughter of the city’s police chief.
According to Jamie, “Molly is a self-made journalist who is confident, accomplished, and accomplished.” “As I’ve mentioned before, she’s a true-crime podcaster, and as I’ve said before, she’s a newcomer to the world of Dexter and you can imagine how that shakes things up in his quiet world,” she said.
Like Esther, the “dispatcher at the Iron Lake Police Station,” Paralympian Katy Sullivan returns to the cast. A big villain in the show will be played by Clancy Brown. Johnny Sequoyah is the chief’s daughter; Alano Miller is a sergeant and high school wrestling coach, and Julia Jones is the town’s chief of police.
Harrison, Dexter’s son who he abandoned ten years ago, has been cast in the lead role by Jack Alcott. Harrison, a young man now in search of his long-lost father, arrives in Iron Lake.
‘Dexter: New Blood’ Trailer
After the trailer was released in July 2021, the show’s official name was announced. The special event series is called Dexter: New Blood. It’s been 10 years since the Dexter series finale, and the story continues in Dexter: New Blood.
Dexter, now known as Jim Lindsay, is living a peaceful existence in Iron Lake, New York, under the guise of his real name. But the man he used to be hasn’t left him. A “whirlwind” is how Dexter describes his therapy sessions with his psychologist. “Because I’ve always had my demons, I had to leave. But now and then, I’m overcome by an urge I can’t ignore.”
This close-knit community’s unexpected events prompt Dexter’s Dark Passenger to beckon, according to the synopsis. New faces like Julia Jones, Alano Miller, and Clancy Brown can be seen in the trailer.
New ‘Dexter’ Teaser
Dexter is seen walking down a snowy street in a small town in the new teaser. Because he’s known as “Jimmy” or “Mr. Lindsay” by everyone, it’s obvious that he’s now going by the name Jim Lindsay. This town’s Fred’s Fish & Game has a sales associate named Dexter (Jim Lindsay).
When Dexter comes across a knife displayed in a storefront window, he stops walking past everyone and looks at it. Dexter has a good deal of experience with knives. The knife has enthralled Dexter. A deep breath is taken by him without saying anything. The teaser’s tagline reads, “There’s something about a small town.”
There is a teaser video on Instagram by Jennifer Carpenter, who played Deb in the original series and wrote, “I haven’t even watched this one yet –– I’ve just shared it immediately!.”
It was on April 29 that Showtime premiered the first teaser for the ninth season of Dexter. A fire is burning in a snow-covered forest, and Dexter gazes out of the window at the snow-covered forest with “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” playing in the background. Reflections in the window show something moving. The person’s screams can be heard in the background. He always smiles at the camera when Dexter turns around. He doesn’t look like a lumberjack anymore! There’s no flannel in sight!
Showtime teased new footage a week before it debuted in the first teaser. During the 10-second video, an ax can be seen lurking in the background. The caption read, “Nature is calling.”
Gary Levine and Jana Winograd, Presidents of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc., announced the news of a Dexter revival in October 2020. Dexter was canceled in 2013 after eight seasons. In early 2021, production began on a new limited series.
In early 2021, filming began for the project. When Showtime first announced that the revival would return in the fall of 2021, that was all they had to go on. The Dexter revival will return in the fall of 2021, according to a teaser released in April 2021. Dexter: New Blood will premiere on Showtime on November 7 at 9 p.m. on the following year, according to a sneak peek trailer released on July 25. There will be ten episodes in this new run of Dexter.
In the series finale, Dexter’s boat went down in a hurricane and he was presumed dead. The shocking finale of the show revealed that Dexter was still alive and working as a lone logger in Oregon. The series finale of Dexter was a hotly debated topic among fans who were dissatisfied with the show’s conclusion.
Executive producer Clyde Phillips told TV Insider that the revival will pick up 8 years after the Dexter finale, with the serial killer living in a new location “we’ve never seen him before.” In season 9, Clyde made numerous death-related allusions. In addition, “the dark passenger,” as Dexter was known to the team, was always present in the detective. That dark passenger is a voice that he cannot deny, and he’s more grounded than he has ever been.” My name is Dexter, and I’m here. “There will be a lot of deaths.”
Set 10 years after Dexter Morgan vanished during Hurricane Laura’s deadly eye, the revival sees Dexter Morgan living under his assumed identity in a world away from Miami.
Will There Be A Season 10?
There’s been no word on whether or not the revival will be renewed for a second season. Because this is a TV show, anything is possible. However, according to Clyde, the show is “moving forward to an ending that will be surprising but inevitable.” It appears that the 10-episode revival will come to an end with a bang.
