It's now time to watch Dexter: New Blood online tonight, so the Showtime drama has a chance to shed the label of having one of the worst series finales ever. The revival brings back Michael C. Hall as Dexter Morgan, who used to work as a Miami Police forensics expert by day and as a vigilante killer by night.
Dexter: New Blood premieres tonight Sunday, November 7 at 9 p.m. ET on Showtime.
The reboot is set 10 years after Dexter disappeared during Hurricane Laura and took up as a lumberjack. He is now living under the name Jim Lindsay in Iron Lake, New York, where he is employed at Fred's Fish and Game. Dexter has embraced his new life, including dating the local sheriff, but when unexpected events rock the close-knit community, his Dark Passenger side awakens.
New Blood features a fresh cast, including Clancy Brown, but a blast from the past is coming — original cast member Jennifer Carpenter is reprising her role as Deb, Dexter's sister. Deb died in the 2013 finale, so the details of her appearance are still a mystery.
As for how the revival plans to fix the series finale, which is widely considered one of the worst of all time, original showrunner Clyde Phillips said, "We’re not going to betray the audience and say, ‘Whoops, that was all a dream.’ What happened in the first eight years, happened in the first eight years."
