Fans of the Showtime series, Dexter, were treated to a wealth of new information at last weekend’s ComicCon@Home regarding the show's upcoming relaunch. Details included a brief plot synopsis, official series title, and planned release date.
Eat your heart out Jason Voorhees, the new Dexter series has officially been dubbed DEXTER: NEW BLOOD. A catchy (albeit rather predictable) title.
Dexter: New Blood will feature a wealth of fan favorite characters from the original series including Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall), Debra Morgan (Jennifer Carpenter), The Trinity Killer (John Lithgow) as well newcomers to the series, Julia Jones (The Mandalorian), Alano Miller (Sylvie’s Love), Johnny Sequoyah (Believe), Jack Alcott (The Good Lord Bird) and Clancy Brown (The Crown, Billions).
It's been a while since the show concluded its eight-season run, so if you need a refresher, or if you're a newcomer, you can watch all six seasons of the Emmy Award Winning Series on Netflix, Showtime and Amazon Prime.
The series reboot, which is going to be a ten-episode limited series, is slated to premiere on Showtime on November 7.
So, what will this reboot be about? We already knew that (according to Showtime), Dexter: New Blood would pick up after the original series, roughly 10 years later, but we now have an official plot synopsis:
"Set 10 years after Dexter went missing in the eye of Hurricane Laura, the series finds him living under an assumed name in the small town of Iron Lake, New York. Dexter may be embracing his new life, but in the wake of unexpected events in this close-knit community, his Dark Passenger beckons."
For more on the series reboot, here is an all new teaser trailer for Dexter: New Blood.
