Dexter Morgan will bring back his familiar bloodlust to your screens with the new show Dexter: New Blood, but not on Netflix. The serial killer will return to the screens after a dismal series finale, eight years back. The Showtime crime drama series ended after an eighth season, with Dexter escaping to Miami after abandoning his son Harrison. All the while getting through a significant number of police members searching for him.
Thus, the critical backlash for Dexter’s uncharacteristic finale has spurred another delve into the character’s mind. The original Dexter showrunner Clyde Phillips is headlining the character’s comeback in Dexter: New Blood. Fans should not consider this miniseries as the 9th season of the show.
The gist of it all
Dexter Morgan has moved to the tiny town of Iron Lake, New York, but he has adopted the alias of Jim Lindsay, a local shopkeeper, ten years after faking his death. Dexter has formed a bond with Angela Bishop, the town’s police chief, and he has kept his serial killer tendencies at bay.
Now that you know what you are getting yourself into, let’s get into when and where can you watch it.
