'Dexter: New Blood': 5 things to know about the reboot of Showtime's cult crime drama
Micahel C Hall is back in the iconic series that is now a limited installment comprising of 10 episodes that will air weekly on the network
Eight scintillating seasons later, 'Dexter's finale was dubbed a major disappointment. The crime drama series that first premiered in 2006 gave the world a look at an antihero, a rare commodity at the point in time. Set in Miami, the series followed Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall), a forensic technician known for his skills in bloodstain pattern analysis for the fictional Miami Metro Police Department. He also leads a secret life as a vigilante serial killer, hunting down murderers who he feels have not been meted out fair punishment.
Showtime has now revived the show as a limited mini-series set to premiere this November. And ahead of the reboot's debut, here are some shows from the network worth checking out — 'Homeland', 'Billions' and 'City on a Hill'
When does 'Dexter: New Blood release?
The much-awaited serial killer drama releases November 7 at 9 pm ET/PT on Showtime. The limited series comprises 10 episodes that will air weekly.
What is the reboot all about?
According to the official synopsis from Showtime, the series moves to “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.”
Who's in the cast of 'Dexter: New Blood'?
Michael C Hall reprises his role as the titular character, Dexter Morgan. Jennifer Carpenter returns as Debra, Dexter’s complex adopted sister. John Lithgow, who played the iconic Trinity Killer in Season 3, will also return. However, as fans recall, both Trinity and Deb are dead. How and why Trinity returns are still kept under wraps. Clancy Brown is the latest entrant to the series and plays Kurt Caldwell, the de facto mayor of Iron Lake.
