With Dexter: New Blood premiering this weekend, many fans are curious about what happened to Dexter’s son, Harrison Morgan, and who will play him in the revival. The last we saw of Dexter’s young son, the serial killer had abandoned him so he could fake his death at sea.
Dexter trusted Hannah to take care of Harrison, and no one knew what happened to him after that. Only one person even knows that Dexter gave Harrison to Hannah, Dexter’s former boss Jacob Elway. Jacob saw Hannah and Harrison getting on a bus together.
Throughout the show’s eight seasons, several different actors (and babies) played Harrison. During seasons five, six and seven, Harrison was played by brothers Evan George Kruntchev and Luke Andrews Kruntchev. Then in Season 8, he was played by Jadon Wells and briefly portrayed by Lucas Adams as a vision of what he might look like as a teenager.
Jack Alcott will play the older Harrison Morgan in Dexter: New Blood
In the revival, Jack Alcott will take over as Harrison Morgan. Alcott is best known for playing Jason Brown in the recent Showtime miniseries The Good Lord Bird opposite Ethan Hawke. He has also appeared in The Blacklist and the short-lived Quibi series When the Streetlights Go On.
Dexter: New Blood: Will Harrison become a killer like his dad?
One of the burning questions on fans’ minds is whether or not Harrison will follow in his dad’s footsteps. Can we expect Harrison to become a killer like Dexter? According to an interview with Entertainment Weekly, we’ll see Harrison hunting for his dad after learning that he’s been alive all this time.
As for if we can anticipate a spinoff starring Alcott as Harrison, it doesn’t seem super likely. The actor said it wasn’t in the forefront of his mind, at least not at the moment.
On his character’s relationship with Dexter, Alcott says:
"The show is about developing our relationship and that we’re two people who don’t know each other and want to know each other. That’s hard when there’s been that much space, the circumstances of having that much space and the secrets that he keeps. That’s about all I can say."
Dexter: New Blood premieres this Sunday at 9/8c on Showtime.
