What? Did you anticipate Dexter: New Blood would attempt to atone for Dexter’s transgressions with a forgettable conclusion? Nope. None other than the namesake serial killer himself perished in the season finale of Dexter: New Blood, which made its Showtime debut this past Sunday night, at the hands of his son, Harrison. (See our postgame profile to learn more about Jack Alcott, the 25-year-old actor who portrayed the part.)
We’re a little concerned about the destiny of Dexter: New Blood—or, more precisely, if there will be a future at all, given that none of us saw it coming. Thankfully, unlike Alcott, the showrunner for Dexter: New Blood appears to be committed to another season.
What Happened In The Former Season Of Dexter: New Blood?
Dexter: New Blood is an American crime drama mystery miniseries created by original series creator Clyde Phillips and directed by Marcos Siega as a follow-up to the series Dexter.  Along with new characters Jack Alcott, Julia Jones, Johnny Sequoyah, Alano Miller, & Clancy Brown, the show stars Michael C. Hall with Jennifer Carpenter in their respective roles as Dexter and Debra Morgan.
Ten years have passed since the moments of the 2013 series finale “Remember the Monsters?” when the narrative takes place. On November 7, 2021, Showtime broadcasted its debut.
Dexter Morgan, who pretended to die in a hurricane ten years prior, has relocated to the fictitious little town of Iron Lake, New York, where he is going by the alias Jim Lindsay, a clerk at a nearby retailer of wilderness sporting equipment. He is in connection with the town’s police chief, Angela Bishop, and he has been able to control his urges to commit vigilante killing sprees.
Their father, Harry, has been replaced by Dexter’s dead sister Debra as the fictional figure he frequently converses with. His illegitimate son Harrison from his prior life shows up unexpectedly in the opening episode with unexplained intentions. Dexter worries that perhaps the “Dark Passenger” inside him, possibly within his son, will manifest itself after a succession of incidents near Iron Lake.
Will There Be A Second Season Of Dexter: New Blood?
We’re prepared to wager that the Dexterverse somehow will endure. But, of course, we’ll have to watch and see if that means Dexter: New Blood will return for another season or if a new series will follow Harrison. Nevertheless, in a chat with Deadline, the show’s creator, Clyde Phillips, confirmed his interest in completing Harrison’s story and felt confident in Dexter: New Blood’s worth to Showtime.
This program is an enormous value, as I stated, Phillips added. “I’m optimistic that the numbers will keep rising once people begin binge-watching this following the conclusion. If Showtime wants more, they must call and ask for me. I would answer yes if they asked if I’d like to make another movie to this. Even though I am pretty busy, I would immediately say yes and drop everything for this.
