It has been ten long years since Dexter Morgan sailed off into the storm. However, to the fans’ joy, Morgan is back, and this time, he is ready for some new blood. Showtime had given the green signal for the revival of Dexter in October last year. The premier date is now all set for November 7, this year and we can’t control our excitement! Fans will be able to see their favorite Michael C. Hall as the Bay Harbor Butcher or simply the Miami. With excitement growing within the fan base, here’s what you need to know about the ninth season of Dexter.
How did the Final Season End?
The year was 2013 when we saw Dexter Morgan, flustered by all the chaos, drive his boat into the hurricane. The fans did not receive the finale in a cordial manner as they were unhappy with the controversial ending. We saw Dexter’s sister Debra, played by Jennifer Carpenter, being shot and killed by Darri Ingolfsson’s Oliver Saxon. Dexter was devastated and blamed himself for his sister’s death. He stole Debra’s body out of the hospital and dumped her body in the ocean.
Just as his other victims. Morgan had nowhere to go with his true love Hannah McKay, played by Yvonne Strahovski, and his young son Harrison played by Jadon Wells, escaping to Argentina for a new life. In fact, he realized that anyone who was in close vicinity to him was doomed for life. With no one to go to, Dexter drove his boat into the hurricane. However, there was a catch in the end. His co-workers believed that he died in the storm, but out her was found living as a lumberjack in Oregon.
What can be expected from the New Season?
Dexter: The ninth season shows our hero in yet another new place. Set after approximately ten years, Dexter: New Blood shows that Dexter Morgan has also said goodbye to Oregon. Now, we see him living under an alias of Jim Lindsay in the Big Apple. However, there is something that is a bit disappointing about the ninth season. Fans would be introduced to a lot of new faces.
Moreover, only Micahel Hall as Dexter, Jennifer Carpenter as Debra, and John Lithgow’s Arthur Mitchell, aka the Trinity Killer, have been announced to be returning. But as both Carpenter’s and Arthur’s characters died in the previous seasons, they will probably only appear as flashbacks or story fillers. The new season will welcome several new faces to the world of Dexter. Clancy Brown, Julia Jones, Jamie Chung, David Magidoff are some of the names that the fans will come across in Dexter:
New Blood. The new season will be consisting of ten episodes instead of twelve like its predecessors. Fans are advised to book their Sunday nights for Dexter: New Blood, premiering on November 7, 2021. Marcos Siega will sit on the director’s chair for the first six episodes. With the show being famous for its Emmy nominations, the Emmy Awards 2022 might see the return of the Dexter Universe in its nominations.
