Fans of Dexter they are eager to learn about the life their favorite character has led since we last saw him several years ago. Showtime decided to bring back the story of the serial killer through Dexter: New Blood, a revival of ten chapters that will bring us closer to the character, now 50 years old, and to that strange life that he surely has. During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Gary Levine, president of the Showtime network, spoke about the importance of this project.

In 2006 it was released Dexter, series that introduces us to the forensic specialist in blood spatter analysis with a double life as a murderer. It is impossible to deny that the first ones were really good, however, with the development we began to notice stumbles in the plots and subplots, loaded with failures impossible to ignore. After 96 episodes and seven years in which the public was hypnotized by this rare protagonist unable to contain his impulses (addressing criminals who won the coup of the law) the series ended in 2013 with an ending that caused disgust among viewers .
For EW, the President of Showtime talks about the importance of the return of Dexter, not so much as to exploit the nostalgia (maybe a little), but to give a worthy ending to the story of the murderer who for so long captured the attention of the spectators:

The end of 2013 ate us a bit, that a series as good as Dexter didn’t end in a way that was perhaps worthy of the series.
For his part, Michael C. Hall is delighted to be back for Dexter: New Blood. Thanks to the images shared by EW we can see some of the actors who will be present at the revival, including the much sought after Jennifer Carpenter, whose appearance was kept secret for several months. Hall also utters a few words in honor of the new season:
We turn the cameras back on and find out where he is, what he’s doing, and what kind of life he managed to dig. Intentional pun. We like to see Dexter get into trouble, but we’d like to see him get out of it.
Dexter’s showrunner, Clyde phillips, stated for Uproxx in late April that New Blood will function as a second chance for the character to draw the conclusion that fans have been waiting for:
This is not Dexter season nine … This was an opportunity to write a second ending for the show. We’re not going to betray the audience and say, ‘Wow, it was all a dream. What happened in the first eight years happened in the first eight years. ‘ It’s been 10 years, or whatever, by the time it will air, and the series will reflect that passage of time. As for the series finale, this will not look like the original ending. It’s a great opportunity to write a second ending for our series and Showtime was very kind about it.
There are not many television productions with terrible endings that have a chance to redeem themselves several years later (I wish that would happen with Game of Thrones – 59%), but Dexter: New Blood It will arrive on November 9 to surprise the fans and most likely to please them with an ending to match. We hope that time passes quickly and those juicy details that always generate a trend in social networks and keep a product at the top of consumption reach us. We already saw the first advances, what new conflicts await Dexter?
