It’s confirmed: Dexter’s Dark Passenger is back for more.
Showtime’s revival of the fan-favorite Dexter series–with the full title of Dexter: New Blood–will debut Nov. 7, and the official trailer was unveiled this week, as reported by Deadline. Check out the chilling video on this page.
The 10-episode continuation of the original series–that wrapped up (unsatisfactorily) in 2013–is set a decade after Dexter Morgan, the former Miami Metro Police Department forensic specialist who doubles as a vengeful serial killer, went missing amidst the fury of Hurricane Laura.
The new series finds Dexter “living under an assumed name in the small town of Iron Lake, N.Y.,” according to the official synopsis. “He may be embracing his new life, but in the wake of unexpected events in this close-knit community, his Dark Passenger inevitably beckons.”
Clyde Phillips returns as showrunner, with Michael C. Hall reprising his lead role. The rest of the ensemble cast includes Julia Jones, Jennifer Carpenter, John Lithgow, Clancy Brown, Alano Miller, Johnny Sequoyah and David Magidoff.
Phillips is teasing longtime fans by revealing that the ending of this new series will be “stunning, shocking, surprising, unexpected. I will say that the ending of this new season will blow up the Internet.”
The original 96-episode run of Dexter–developed by John Manos Jr. from the 2004 novel Darkly Dreaming Dexter–was nominated for 24 Primetime Emmy Awards and 10 Golden Globe Awards. The show also earned a Peabody Award in 2007.
