Dexter trailer: New season, same killer debuts at Comic-Con 2021

10 years after relocating to rural Oregon, Dexter Morgan still can’t leave himself, as evidenced in the trailer for Dexter’s brand-new season. Showtime debuted the initially trailer for the serial-killer drama’s long-waited for season 9, which is being called Dexter: New Members, throughout a panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2021.

The trailer gets with Dexter living a brand-new life under a brand-new name: Jim Lindsay. Fittingly, he operates at an outdoors shop around a lot of knives, and doing his finest to live a regular life. However it doesn’t appear that this brand-new life in Oregon has actually suppressed Dexter’s Dark Guest and while the trailer doesn’t expose much about the story for the brand-new season, however it appears that Dexter’s still approximately his nighttime profession of serial killing — ideally still simply individuals who deserve it. It also seems that the later part of the season could involve someone discovery Dexter’s secret and possibly even trying to track him down, however it’s hard to say for sure.

Showtime hasn’t released the trailer on YouTube yet, but it starts at 41:14 on the official panel stream:

Dexter’s original run began on Showtime in 2006 and ended in 2013 after eight seasons. However, in 2020 it was announced that the show would return for at least one more seasons to catch up with its cast. In the final moments of Dexter’s eighth — and at the time final — season, Dexter moved from his longtime home in Miami to a small cabin in Oregon after faking his own death.

At the time of the original finale, the move was met with mixed, at best, reactions. But perhaps with a return to Dexter a decade later in the character’s story, the creative team can find a more fitting end.

Along with Dexter himself Michael C. Hall, the reboot likewise brings back Clyde Phillips, the series’ initial showrunner. Many of the program’s initial cast members are coming back as well, like John Lithgow and even Jennifer Carpenter — though it remains to be seen how she fits in considering that Deb had a pretty finite ending in the series’ initial run.

Dexter: New Members is presently set to air 10 episodes on Showtime beginning on Nov. 7. It’s unidentified if this a single one-and-done season, or if there are strategies to continue the story with season 10.
