One of the greatest television characters is about to be back on our screens for the first time since 2013 and fans could not be more excited. Dexter: New Blood is a miniseries based on the beloved Showtime drama Dexter, and takes place about 10 years later.

Emmy Award nominee Michael C. Hall returns as Dexter Morgan, with new cast members Julia Jones, Clancy Brown, Jack Alcott and Jamie Chung joining. Fans were surprised when it was announced this year that Jennifer Carpenter would be returning for the revival, as her character, Debra Morgan, was killed in season 8.

We’ll be curious to find out how and why Deb appears in Dexter: New Blood. Really, we have so many questions leading into this new show especially considering the events of the season 8 finale. What is Dexter up to nowadays? We won’t have long to find out!

He’s found comfort in a new identity and has assimilated into small town life as a beloved member of the Iron Lake community. When a local hotshot begins behaving recklessly, and a mysterious stranger seems to be on Dexter’s trail, he questions whether he can continue to suppress the murderous urgings of his Dark Passenger. Season premiere."

The first season is expected to include 10 episodes, with new episodes airing every Sunday night on Showtime.

Leading up to the Dexter: New Blood premiere, Michael C. Hall discussed Dexter‘s divisive ending and why they were revisiting the character. As reported by Indie Wire, the actor shared the following at a panel during the Television Critics Association Summer 2021 Press Tour:

"“I think the way the series proper ended has a great deal to do with why we’re revisiting the show and the character. The show did not end in a way that was definitive for people or gave them a sense of closure. We didn’t hear from Dexter. He didn’t say anything to us when the show ended, and I think it left audiences in a state of suspended animation. A big part of our motivation was to definitively answer the question of what happened to this guy.”"

Fans of Dexter are no doubt counting down the hours until the revival premieres on live TV. Be sure to check back in with us at Hidden Remote for our full Dexter: New Blood coverage.
