During Dexter’s [email protected] virtual panel for the upcoming special event series, officially titled Dexter: New Blood, a sneak peek trailer was released, teasing the return of the Dark Passenger. The limited series will premiere on Showtime on Sunday, November 7.
Set 10 years after Dexter went missing in the eye of Hurricane Laura, the series finds him living under an assumed name, Jim Lindsay, 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.
Check out the sneak peek below:
Joining Hall, the cast also includes Julia Jones (The Mandalorian), Alano Miller (Sylvie’s Love), Johnny Sequoyah (Believe), Jack Alcott (The Good Lord Bird), and Clancy Brown (The Crown, Billions). It was recently revealed that Jennifer Carpenter and John Lithgow will be reprising their roles as Debra Morgan and the Trinity Killer, respectively.
Reuniting Hall with original series showrunner Clyde Phillips, Dexter: New Blood is currently in production on 10 one-hour episodes in Western Massachusetts.
“When we sit in the writing room, one of the first things we do is talk about usually is what the ending will be,” said Phillips. “We put our notes against the ending and then walking backward and filling up the episodes. The ending of this one will be stunning, shocking, surprising, unexpected. Without jinxing anything, I will say that the ending of this new season will blow up the internet.”
The upcoming limited series is executive produced by returning showrunner Clyde Phillips, with Marcos Siega set to direct six episodes. Executive producers are Hall, Siega, John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, Bill Carraro, and Scott Reynolds.
