Dexter Revival Gets November 7 Premiere Date, New Teaser
The Comic-Con 2021 panel delivered some overdue news on the bloody drama.
The Dexter revival will premiere on November 7 on Showtime, according to an announcement immediately following the show's Comic-Con 2021 panel. An accompanying release otherwise tells us what all dutiful Dexter fans already know--this upcoming batch of 10 episodes picks up a decade after the previous season, and sees our antihero living under an assumed name in upstate New York.
As a trailer that aired at the very end of the panel makes abundantly clear--Dexter may have escaped his past, but it is starting to catch up to him. The release ominously says that "in the wake of unexpected events in this close-knit community, [Dexter's] Dark Passenger beckons." Check out the trailer first aired during the panel below, which Showtime also quickly tweeted out afterwards.
The preceding panel largely focused on how Dexter is coming back "because it deserved a better ending," according to star Michael C. Hall himself. This sentiment was echoed, lockstep, by his co-star Julia Jones (The Mandalorian), and several executive producers. So, it looks like for the time being, all we can do is try to wait for a few more months for Dexter to come back.
In addition to Hall and Jones, the revival's cast also includes Alano Miller (Sylvie's Love), Johnny Sequoyah (Believe), Jack Alcott (The Good Lord Bird) and Clancy Brown (The Crown, Billions). Reuniting Hall with original series showrunner Clyde Phillips, the revival is currently in production on 10 one-hour episodes in Western Massachusetts.
