The world at large believes Dexter Morgan died in a tragic boating accident, and in a way, the world at large isn’t wrong. Far from the life he knew, living under a false name in the small town of Iron Lake, NY, he’s successfully tamped down his Dark Passenger for nearly ten years. With a normal job and a Chief of Police girlfriend, it seems he’s got life under control – until his son shows up and turns his world upside down. Rattled, Dexter yields to his homicidal urges and soon finds himself on a collision course with a dangerous local.

Heather’s Review:

I didn’t get into Dexter until years after it first aired. I think I binged the entire series in 2020 during lockdown. When I heard that they were releasing new episodes, I was ecstatic. I was very concerned that they would do what they have done with so many other shows — make it about the new generation. And while I’m not 100% sure that this isn’t the plan for the show going forward, I did enjoy this first season and grew attached to the new cast. I also loved the appearances from some of the old cast as well. I’m curious to see if my prediction for Season 2 will come into play.

I give Dexter: New Blood on Showtime 4 out of 5 stars.
