Showtime’s Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) was an instant hit with audiences. Viewers couldn’t get enough of the man who, by day, is a blood-spatter analyst and, at night, is a serial killer. Many people aren’t giving up on Dexter because it was off the air for a year in 2013.
A boat accident had supposedly killed Dexter’s coworkers, so they didn’t say a word about him after he attempted to leave his old life behind in Argentina.
It is soon revealed to us that Dexter has a new identity and is living in Oregon. Here’s what we discovered. Dexter Morgan’s ninth season has been the subject of much speculation. The show intentionally left the door open for Dexter Morgan to return to our screens at a later time.
Dexter will return in a new season with ten episodes (via Deadline). Michael C. Hall and Clyde Phillips are likely to return for the revival. The following is the rest of what we know so far about the show:
When Will Dexter Season 9 be Released?
It’s been a long time coming, but a new Dexter film is finally ready. It will only be available for a short period, and it will be available at the beginning of 2021. That same year, it’s expected to be out. This is subject to change, so stay on top of any new developments. As of December 2020, Comicbook.com reported that production was on schedule, indicating that this deadline may be met.
Showtime’s Co-President of Entertainment Gary Levine made this statement. This is an exciting time to be in the business, he declared. For us to bring back a character like this, we’d have to find a way to show him in a way that was worthy of the brilliant, original series he was in.”
What’s that? We can’t wait to show everyone what Clyde Phillips has discovered.” Phillips served as showrunner for all four seasons. In addition to his work as a director, he also served as an executive producer and writer. He assisted on a few episodes of season 5 as a consultant. He hasn’t worked on the show since then. Even though he’s back, he’s not the only one.
Who Will be in the Dexter Season 9 cast?
The main cast of Dexter is involved in a slew of projects. Michael C. Hall, for example, appeared in a small role in The Crown and co-starred with Adam Driver in the upcoming film The Report in 2019. Despite Hall’s stated willingness to reprise the role that made him famous, it appears that’s precisely what happened. So far, Hall is the only main cast member who has been confirmed to return for this revival.

David Zayas and C.S. Lee, the actors who played Angel Batista and Vince Masuka, are expected to return for the upcoming season. Season 8 ended with Debra Morgan being declared dead, so I’m not sure if Jennifer Carpenter will reprise her role as her.
There have been rumours about Carpenter returning to Dexter in the future to play her character in flashbacks and dreams or memories, according to showrunner Clyde Phillips. “There’s a little bit of magic in the movies.”
What’s that? This “he said that to Us Magazine” is the only thing I can say about it. Whether she’ll return is still up in the air, as Phillips hasn’t explicitly stated. That’s a question he’s unable to answer at the moment.
Screen Rant has confirmed for the first time since season 9 was announced that John Cusack will also be a part of it. In the movie, Cusack is said to be playing a character named Kurt, who could be a good target for our main baddie. The show’s cast and crew received more good news on November 17, 2020, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Marcos Siega, a veteran director, will serve as an EP on the show’s revival.
He is also going to direct six of the planned episodes. Siege has worked with Phillips for a long time. He directed nine episodes of Dexter that were well-received during the original eight-season run. Phillips wants to make things right with viewers who felt hurt by the season 8 finale.
There will be more casting news in the next few months, so you’ll have to check back to see what comes out. Because Showtime wants to start filming Dexter season 9 in early 2021, casting confirmations should come out soon rather than later.
What’s the Dexter Season 9 Plot?
There don’t appear to be any hints as to what Dexter season 9 will be about. Season 8 left a lot of room for interpretation, so a revival could take a variety of directions.
Several Reddit and other forums are available for people to share their thoughts on how this story might continue. Dexter Morgan’s friends thought he had died when we last saw him. He was able to get to Oregon by using a different alias. When a new serial killer begins killing people, he may emerge from his shell. A lot of his old friends are going to try to get him to stop.
Despite its lack of substance, a remark Phillips made to TV Insider helped him feel better. A “surprising but inevitable” ending is what Phillips predicted for the story. In a brief interview, Phillips revealed that the revival would begin eight years after the last episode and that Dexter would be in a new location.
A revival of the show may even use Clyde Phillips’ original ending. He came up with the idea of taking Dexter into custody and putting him to death on his own. At this point, Dexter is visited by visions of the killers he has previously killed (LaGuerta, the Trinity Killer, and Doakes) (via Digital Spy). During Season 9, Dexter may eliminate another serial killer before he is brought to justice for his crimes.
It was on February 25 that Showtime released the first image of Michael C. Hall in his famous role. Even though the image is visually appealing, it does little to shed light on the possible storyline. We’ll find out more about Dexter Morgan’s crimes in the coming months, so stay tuned. For those who couldn’t get enough of his deeds, this is welcome news. Be on the lookout for any new details that may emerge.
Dexter Season 9 Trailer
The full trailer was finally shown at San Diego Comic-Con in 2021. Teasers were aplenty before that. The preview opens with Dexter attending therapy, giving the impression that he’s making an effort to abstain from killing. But by the end of the trailer, it’s clear that the serial killer is going back to his old ways of doing things.”

Dexter: New Blood Reviews
However, not all reviewers have been kind to the reboot. There is no “sharpness” in either Hall or New Blood that justifies Hall’s return as anything but a nostalgia play, according to Rolling Stone.
“It’s kind of fun to see Dexter again,” said Entertainment Weekly. “New Blood’s mix of old and new has a lot of promise,” said IGN. ‘
