However, in 2021, Showtime unexpectedly revived the show as Dexter: New Blood with original showrunner Clyde Phillips returning to maintain continuity.

Set ten years after Dexter Morgan pretends to be his death, we see the former serial killer living in the rural town of Iron Lake, New York, where he goes by the name of Jim Lindsay and masquerades as a local shopkeeper. .
While Dexter is suppressing his murderous impulses, his ‘Dark Passenger’ eventually gets the better of him and resurfaces at the worst of times.
