Showtime has released a new trailer for Dexter: New Blood, the official title of the Dexter revival, during its Comic-Con@Home panel, as well as announcing that the event series will premiere November 7th in the 9 PM time slot. Watch below…
Dexter: New Blood will pick up nearly 10 years after the conclusion of the original series with Dexter presumed dead and living far away from Miami after suffering several personal tragedies during the final season. The trailer shows him in his new identity as Jim Lindsay, a nod to Dexter creator and author Jeff Lindsay, as he tries living a normal life but finds trouble keeping his dark urges in check.
Dexter: New Blood stars Michael C. Hall as Dexter Morgan with Clancy Brown as the primary villain Kurt Caldwell, the “unofficial mayor” of Iron Lake, as well as Jamie Chung (Lovecraft Country) as Molly, a famous true-crime podcaster, Oscar Wahlberg (Manchester By the Sea) as Zach, the captain of the Iron Lake High School wrestling team, Julia Jones (The Mandalorian) as Angela Bishop, Iron Lake’s Chief of Police, Alano Miller (Sylvie’s Love), Johnny Sequoyah (Believe), Jack Alcott (The Good Lord Bird) and Michael Cyril Creighton (Spotlight).
Original series star Jennifer Carpenter will also return as Debra Morgan, Dexter’s adopted sister, in what is expected to be flashback scenes alongside John Lithgow’s return as The Trinity Killer.
Although there are currently no details on the plot of the revival series, we do know that Clyde Phillips is set to return as showrunner and executive producer with Marcos Siega, who previously directed nine episodes of the original series, set to return to executive produce and direct six of the 10-episodes in the limited series. Michael C. Hall will also serve as executive producer alongside John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, Bill Carraro and Scott Reynolds.
Dexter: New Blood will premiere November 7th.
