New Blood is an American TV series that aired on Showtime from October 3, 2013, to May 17, 2014. It was created by Michael E. Kelley and based on the novel Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay. Dexter: New Blood is a continuation of the story of Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall), a Miami forensics expert who moonlights as a serial killer.
Season 2 picks up after Dexter has been imprisoned and is awaiting execution for the murders of Rita Freeze (Jennifer Carpenter) and Daryll Blake (Jay Mohr). Season 2 of Dexter: New Blood follows the aftermath of Dexters imprisonment, as well as his relationships with new characters including LaGuerta (Karine Romain), Rita’s daughter; Lumen (Asha Bromfield), a street-wise young woman; and Brian Moser (Christian Camargo), Dexters defence lawyer. Showtime released an update about Season 2 which you can read below.
Dexter Season 2 Gets an Update from Showtime Boss
Showtime boss Gary Levine has released an update on the status of Dexter Season 2, which is currently in development at the network. Levine announced that they are still very much interested in continuing the series, and that they have some great ideas for where to take it next.
Dexter has always been a unique and memorable series, with its well-developed characters and compelling story line. The second season was especially strong, and it seems likely that Showtime will want to continue the series. However, Levine didn’t give any specific details about where the story might go next.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing – after all, Dexter doesn’t need to follow a traditional TV series plot formula in order to be successful. It’s one of the strongest aspects of the show, and it would be unfortunate if it were to change in order to appeal to a wider audience. As long as Dexter remains grounded in its unique vision and continues to provide viewers with entertainment value, there’s no reason why it can’t continue for many seasons to come.
The New Blood Season 2 is Coming
Fans of Dexter are eagerly awaiting the return of Season 2 and now we have an update from Showtime boss David Nevins. In a recent interview with Digital Spy, Nevins revealed that the show is still on track for its return in early 2012.
According to Nevins, “We’re extremely close” to airing Season 2. He also said that not much has changed since Season 1 ended and that they are sticking to their original plan of releasing 12 episodes per season.
Nevins went on to say that he’s been very pleased with how the new season is shaping up and that fans will be happy with how it turns out. He also revealed some new details about the upcoming season, including a new character and an increased focus on the dark side of Dexter’s personality.
Dexter Season 3 Will Be Released in 2019
Showtime has announced that the third season of Dexter will be released in 2019. The news follows a recent report from Deadline which stated that the network was “close to an agreement” with Showtime president David Nevins to produce more episodes.
Season 3 will reportedly follow a new serial killer who has been terrorizing Miami andfeatures appearances by several of Dexter’s old foes. It’s unclear what role, if any, Debra Morgan will play in the season. Additionally, it’s been reported that Sony Pictures Television is eyeing a spin-off series based on Dexter’s sister Rita (played by Jennifer Carpenter).
The release date for Season 3 hasn’t yet been finalized but it looks like we’ll be getting another round ofDexter shenanigans soon enough.
More Details on the Characters of the New Blood Season
With Dexter’s seventh season looming, Showtime boss Gary Levine offered up an update on the show’s main characters. According to Levine, viewers should expect to see “a lot of Dexters” this year as the show moves into a new arc.

Meanwhile, Rita (Julie Benz) thinks she knows where Dexter is and decides to go after him herself. Manny (Jose Cardenas) is still working for Miami Metro as a forensic scientist, but he’s restless and looking for something more. And Dexter’s sister Evelyn (Aimee Richardson) is starting college and trying to figure out who she is and where she fits in the world.
We won’t be seeing much of Quinn (Michael Cera), though Levine hinted that he could make an appearance later on in the season. And lastly, Harry Chase (Colin Hanks) will return as Sergeant Doakes -Dexter’s longtime nemesis who has since retired from the police force.”

In addition to all of this new content, Season 2 will also feature a brand new opening sequence which is appropriately dark and menacing – reminiscent of the amazing visual effects work done for the show’s acclaimed first season. In fact, one sequence features Dexter dumping body parts from a boat into the ocean – an image that has left many Dexter fans disturbed and asking questions about what direction our favorite serial killer will go in this upcoming season.
Fans of the show are eagerly awaiting more details about how these changes will impact the overall story arc for Season 2, but Patterson did promise that there would be resolution to some of the cliffhangers left over from last year’s finale. And if you’re like me and just can’t wait to find out what happens next, Season 2 of Dexter is airing Sundays at 10pm on Showtime – so mark your calendars!

While there are still no concrete details as to when or even if the series will return, showrunner Scott Buck offered a few tantalizing tidbits in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
According to Buck, the new season will be shorter than the first (but still feature all of Dexter’s iconic episodes), and it’ll serve as a “bridge” between seasons one and two of Showtime’s planned trilogy. Additionally, Buck hinted that we may be seeing some characters from Dexter’s past make a comeback in the new season – which would undoubtedly please longtime fans.
Of course, these are just rumors for now – but they’re definitely enough to give Dexter fans something to chew on until Season 2 officially arrives. In the meantime, check out our full interview with Buck below to get a little more insight into what we can expect from Season 2:

We have a few flashbacks that will bring back some old friends for both Debra and Doakes.” He also teases that Dexter’s son might come “into play” later in the season. The showrunner promises that even though things are coming to an end for Dex, “the journey is far from over.”

What is the Deal with Dexter’s Brother?
According to Showtime president of original programming Gary Levine, there is still much to be revealed about Dexter’s (Michael C. Hall) brother, played by James Remar. In an interview with TVGuide.com, Levine declared: “There are some twists and turns yet to come.” Fans of the show have been eagerly awaiting any news on Dexter’s sibling since the Season 5 finale aired in May 2013.
Dexter’s brother was last seen driving away from Miami with Rita (Jennifer Carpenter) after shooting Lumen (Aimee Garcia). Since then, fans have been wondering what happened to him and if he had any involvement in Dexter’s crimes. Levine confirmed that viewers will finally find out what happened to Dexter’s brother in Season 7 – but warned them not to expect a simple answer. “What we’re doing this year is taking things one step at a time,” he said.
While no date has been released for the premiere of Season 7, it is expected that it will air sometime in early 2015.

According to Showtime president David Nevins, the new season will be darker and stormier than ever before. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Nevins said “It’s darker and more intense. The mythology — those diegetic things that take place in the world of Dexter — are richer this year. And we have some new characters who force Dexter into situations where he has to answer questions he may not want to answer.”
This news comes as a relief to fans of the show, many of whom were fearing that the series was going off the rails after its critically acclaimed but low viewership last year. Season Six will apparently consist of ten episodes, airing sometime in early 2013.

There you have it – four new characters for Season 2 of Dexter. Stay tuned for more updates about this exciting show, as well as information on when Season 2 might be released on DVD or streaming services!

Fans of Dexter can rejoice because there will be a number of returning characters, including Rita Fairbrother (played by Aisha Tyler).
Levine also teased that “something big” will happen in regards to Dexter’s sister Debra Morgan (Jennifer Carpenter) and her possible return to the show. While Season 8 won’t premiere until early 2018, it sounds like Showtime has been hard at work on the new season and we can’t wait to see all the twists and turns.
Dexter Kills a Brother in a Fight Scene
Dexter’s seventh season has been nothing but gore and blood. Showtime boss Gary Levine teased the fans with a first look of the new Dexter story arc, which will air later this year. Here’s what you need to know about it:
The first episode of the new season picks up right where the last one left off – Dexter (Michael C. Hall) is in a bathtub full of ice and blood as Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) desperately tries to save him. It soon becomes clear that he’s lost his mind and killed someone; however, it’s not who we were expecting.
According to Showtime, “Dexter” Season 7 Episode 1 introduces us to Dexter’s brother Dave (Scott Speedman), who was presumed dead after going missing in action during the Iraq War. Now back in Miami, Dex finds out that Dave has returned home and is living under an assumed identity – something that doesn’t sit well with Dexter. The two brothers engage in a bloody battle that ends with Dex stabbing Dave in the chest – finally revealing his true identity to Deb and leaving her horrified.
There are plenty more surprises in store for “Dexter” Season 7, so make sure you tune in starting October 3rd!
Debra Morgan Thinks Dexter is Murderer
Debra Morgan is one of the few people on Dexter that knows for sure that Dexter is a murderer. She’s also one of the only people on Dexter who can put two and two together and figure out how he does his murders. And in a new interview with TVLine, showrunner Scott Buck revealed that Morgan may have some clues about Dexter’s next victim.
Buck teases that Morgan will play an important role in the next season of Dexter, which returns to Showtime this fall. He wouldn’t say whether or not Morgan knows who the killer is, but he did say that “her suspicions will be confirmed.”
It makes sense that Showtime would want Debra Morgan involved in the show’s future after her powerful performance in Season 7. In that episode, she discovered evidence linking Dexter to three murders and was able to bring him down before he could kill again. While it was frustrating to watch her unravel his secret over time, it was also great to see her badass side come out.
Now we just need her to figure out who the killer actually is…
A Dark Twist for Harrison Barnes’ Character
Dexter season 8 is coming to an end, and Showtime boss Gary Levine has provided a brief update on the series’ future. In a recent interview with Deadline, Levine stated that “there will definitely be another season of Dexter” and that he couldn’t say much more about the plans for the show yet.
This news comes as a bit of a shock to fans of the show, who were expecting Dexter to finally come to a close after eight seasons. However, given how successful the show has been over the past few years, there is no doubt that Showtime is willing to keep airing new episodes.
What do you think about this possible Dark Twist for Harrison Barnes’ character? Will you be tuning in for another season of Dexter? Let us know in the comments below!
