DEXTER MORGAN will return to M-Net on November 8, 2021 at 9.30pm in a 10-episode sequel miniseries, Dexter: New Blood, which will be set almost 10 years after the season eight finale, which aired in 2013. The sequel will again bring together series star Michael C Hall and showrunner Clyde Phillips.
The reboot of the series will see Dexter having moved to a fictional New York town called Iron Lake. And – according to teasers – the former forensic technician is now using the name Jim Lindsay (do we need to explain?), working at a store called Fred’s Fish & Game, and Dexter’s son, Harrison (introduced in season four), will be involved.
The original eight-season run of Dexter starred Hall as Dexter Morgan, a complicated and conflicted blood-spatter expert for the Miami police department who moonlights as a serial killer. The show became one of the most acclaimed series on television, earning multiple Emmy® and GoldenGlobe® nominations for best television drama series as well as a prestigious Peabody Award in 2008, and was twice named one of AFI’s top 10 television series. All eight seasons can be binge-watched on Showmax. There are 96 episodes of roughly an hour each, so if you watch five a day, it will take 16 days to complete the series. You have time.
