Last October, Showtime took everyone by surprise by announcing the return of Dexter for a season 9. A year later, we will be able to discover the return of the serial killer, since the American channel will broadcast this season under the form of a miniseries – titled Dexter: New Blood – starting November 7 on Showtime. In France, it will be found on Canal +.
Composed of 10 episodes, this season 9 of Dexter will be scripted by Clyde Phillips (who had left the original show after its fourth season) and will bring us back to the famous serial killer played by Michael C. Hall seven years after leaving Miami. So there is no question of pretending that the controversial end of Season 8 has not happened (see our ranking of seasons in the series).
What is Dexter: New Blood about?
It’s now 10 years since Dexter Morgan disappeared in the open sea when Hurricane Laura hit Miami. He has since rebuilt a peaceful life in the town of Iron Lake, New York as Jeff Lindsay (in honor of the author of the books on which the series is based). Dexter has come to embrace this new existence, but when this tight-knit little community is suddenly hit by unexpected events, the killer he had managed to keep under control seeks to resurface.
In terms of the cast of this season 9 of Dexter, Michael C. Hall, therefore, resumes his iconic role. He will be flanked by Julia Jones (Goliath, Longmire), Alano Miller (Jane the Virgin, Underground), Johnny Sequoyah (Believe), Jack Alcott (The Good Lord Bird), and Clancy Brown (Billions, Carnivale).
It was also announced that Jennifer Carpenter and John Lithgow will reappear in their respective roles of Debra Morgan (who replaces Harry as Dexter) and Arthur Mitchell (the Trinity Killer) – of course, with the character dead, we can be sure. expect him to appear briefly in Dexter’s dreams or visions, or flashbacks.
