Dexter: New Blood is one of the most highly anticipated shows coming out this fall, but the wait for the Dexter revival is going to be a little longer. Since it was announced, fans have been eager to watch the new show, which many hope will amends for a series finale most agree was terrible (and some even label it as the worst series finales of all time).
Showtime first announced that they would be bringing Dexter back for a continuation in October 2020, so the fact that it will be premiering this year is impressive given that the premium cable network had to get the series produced during the pandemic.
Dexter originally ran for eight seasons and 96 episodes, spanning from 2006 to 2013. The show became extremely popular and cultivated a passionate fanbase over its lengthy run. Dexter Morgan has cheekily been referred to as our favorite serial killer, especially since he kills criminals and people considered to be the worst of humanity.
Viewers have likely been hoping that Dexter would premiere in early fall as part of Showtime’s line-up, however, it appears Showtime has other plans for the show as it will not be releasing in September 2021.
When does Dexter: New Blood premiere on Showtime?
Showtime announced that Dexter: New Blood, the official name of the upcoming Dexter revival, will actually release on November 7, 2021. So while it’s not coming out in September, fans don’t have to wait too much longer for the revival to premiere.
Set ten years after the events of the original series finale, Dexter: New Blood is currently being billed as a limited series that will give the creators a chance to tell a better ending.
Michael C. Hall will return in the titular role and he’ll be joined by returning stars John Lithgow and Jennifer Carpenter. Additional cast members include Clancy Brown, David Magidoff, Julia Jones, Alano Miller, Johnny Sequoyah and Jack Alcott.
