Dexter returns

Written by Midweek. Posted in New Series

The anticipated sequel miniseries, Dexter: New Blood, starts on M-Net this week.

“I’ve always had my demons, and so I went away. But, sometimes, I have an urge too strong to ignore,” sums up the blood hungry serial killer.

Series fans’ favourite serial killer Dexter Morgan (Michael C Hall) will return in a 10-episode sequel miniseries, Dexter: New Blood, which will be set almost ten years after season eight’s finale. The sequel will once again bring together series star Michael C Hall and showrunner Clyde Phillips. 

The reboot of the series will see Dexter living in a fictional New York town called Iron Lake. And the former forensic technician is now using the name Jim Lindsay, working at a store called Fred’s Fish & Game, and Dexter’s son, Harri-son (introduced in season 4), will be involved. 

The original eight-season run of Dexter starred Hall as Dexter Morgan, a complicated and conflicted blood-spatter expert for the Miami police department who moonlights as a serial killer.

The show became one of the most acclaimed series on television. Hall is a six-time Emmy nominee for Outstanding Lead Actor, the last five nominations coming in consecutive years for his work on Dexter. 

He also received five consecutive Golden Globe nominations and six Screen Actors Guild nominations for the role, winning both honours in 2010.
