After a series of enigmatic teasers (and by enigmatic we mean rubbish), our first proper look at the eagerly-awaited ninth season of Dexter has now arrived, and along with it, news of its official title and when we can expect to see it!
Following the precedent set by Twin Peaks back in 2017, Dexter too will carry a subtitle instead of a traditional Season 9 tag. Unlike Twin Peaks' breathtakingly uninspired subtitle The Return (we can only imagine David Lynch had too many other battles to fight during its making to bother with that), Showtime has at least been a little more creative with our favourite serial killer's further adventures, with the upcoming 10-episode continuation now officially christened Dexter: New Blood.
As for when the release date, fans only have a short wait to go, with a November 7th premiere now locked in. Check out what will inevitably be the first of many new trailers below, and let us know your thoughts over on our social channels...
Starring multiple Emmy nominee Michael C. Hall as America’s favorite serial killer Dexter Morgan, the special event series DEXTER: NEW BLOOD will premiere Sunday, November 7 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME. 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. Joining Hall, the cast also includes Julia Jones (The Mandalorian), Alano Miller (Sylvie’s Love), Johnny Sequoyah (Believe), Jack Alcott (THE GOOD LORD BIRD) and Clancy Brown (The Crown, BILLIONS). Reuniting Hall with original series showrunner Clyde Phillips, DEXTER: NEW BLOOD is currently in production on 10 one-hour episodes in Western Massachusetts.
