Are you ready to ride with Dexter and his “Dark Passenger” again? Showtime has released a new trailer for Dexter: New Blood, a special event series which premieres this November in the USA, and will air on Sky Atlantic in the UK.

Set 10 years after Dexter went missing in the eye of Hurricane Laura, the series finds him living under an assumed name in the small town of Iron Lake, New York. Dexter may be embracing his new life, but in the wake of unexpected events in this close-knit community, his Dark Passenger beckons…

Joining Hall in the series are the legendary Clancy Brown (‘Highlander’, ‘Sleepy Hollow’, ‘Billions’) as Kurt Caldwell, who is lined up as the main antagonist in the series. Caldwell was born and raised in the town of Iron Lake. In fact, some consider him the unofficial mayor of their small town. He’s realized the American dream by going from driving big rigs, just like his father did, to now owning several trucks and the local truck stop. Powerful, generous, loved by everyone – he’s a true man of the people. If he’s got your back, consider yourself blessed. But should you cross Kurt, or hurt anyone that he cares for… God help you.

Other cast includes Julia Jones (‘The Mandalorian’, ‘Goliath’) as Angela Bishop, the first Native American Chief of Police in the town; Johnny Sequoyah (‘Believe’) as Audrey, Bishop’s brash and opinionated teenage daughter; Alano Miller (‘Sylvie’s Love’) as Logan, a sergeant for the Iron Lake Police Department and the assistant wrestling coach for the local high school;  David Magidoff (‘The Morning Show’) as Teddy, a new cop in Iron Lake PD, who is good-natured, quirky, hardworking, eager to please, and dependable; Jamie Chung (‘Lovecraft Country’, ‘The Gifted’) as a famous LA true-crime podcaster who finds herself caught up in the central mystery; And Jack Alcott (‘The Good Lord Bird’) as Randall, someone with whom Dexter has a “meaningful encounter”.

The eight-season run of the original ‘Dexter’ premiered in the autumn of 2006 on Showtime in the USA and starred Hall as Dexter Morgan, a complicated and conflicted blood-spatter expert for the Miami police department who moonlights as a serial killer. The show became one of the most acclaimed series on television, earning multiple Emmy nominations for best television drama series as well as a prestigious Peabody Award in 2008, and was twice named one of AFI’s top 10 television series.

‘Dexter‘ is produced by Showtime with showrunner Clyde Phillips returning behind the camera and exec producing alongside Michael C. Hall, John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, Bill Carraro and Scott Reynolds.

Dexter: New Blood‘ premieres Sunday, November 7, 2021, on Showtime in the USA. We know it is definitely coming to Sky Atlantic in the UK, but they have yet to announce the UK premiere date. We suspect (if they have any sense…) it’ll be one of those shows which they either simulcast with the US, or air next day, but that is in no way confirmed. If you want to keep track of this or any other shows, you can add them via our Never Miss system, and you’ll be notified when they get a UK premiere date.
