Season 8 of the American crime series Dexter premiered in 2013 as the last installment of the show. But 8 years later, the showrunners have decided to renew Dexter for another miniseries. Fans of Showtime’s series were shocked to find this out, and now they are even more eager to know about Dexter Season 9.
If you are one of those fans, then you are in the right place because we have gathered all the information from credible sources about Dexter’s new miniseries. It includes everything; the plot details, cast members, rumors, social media posts, and information even on trailers.
So, without any further delay, let’s begin.
Will there be a 9th season of Dexter?
In October of 2020, Michael C. Hall revived the Dexter fandom by announcing a new chapter for Dexter in the making. The filming had already begun at that time, but the production had to be abandoned due to the pandemic.
The production of Dexter Season 9 began in February, and it was expected to end in July. And if things went according to the plan, it will go on air in late 2021 or early 2022.
However, the showrunners are not referring to the new chapter as “Dexter Season 9” because the original show ended with the 8th installment. The upcoming series is more of a reboot or a reunion series made for the Dexter fandom.
What is the release date for the 9th season of Dexter?
Marcos Siega, director of the 9th season, did not give any specific release date for the new installment. He only said that the new chapter would go on air in November of 2021.
So there is no release date for the 10 episodes long chapter. But most likely, it will be available on Showtime’s streaming site in November.
Rest assured, we will keep you updated on the matter!
Is the original cast coming back for season 9 of Dexter?
In the 8th season of Dexter, Deb Morgan was killed. But it has been confirmed that Jennifer Carpenter (who played Deb Morgan) will be making a comeback in the new chapter.
This news didn’t just revive the fandom, but it also resurrected Deb Morgan.
After this news came out, fans believed it to be a rumor, but everyone was shocked when it proved true. However, the writers obviously have some sane plot in their minds, so we don’t need to worry about it.
Other than Jeniffer Carpenter, Michael C. Hall (who played Dexter Morgan) will also be coming back as the main lead.
In addition to these two, Clancy Brown, Jamie Chung, Julia Jones, Alano Miller, Oscar Wahlberg, Michael Cyril Creighton, and Jack Alcott have confirmed that they are coming back for the 9th installment. This was a huge piece of news for fans because they did not expect many original cast members to come back.
Just like every other reboot, some actors did not agree to come back to the show. They include Yvonne Strahovski, Julia Stiles, James Remar, and Julie Benz. So that was heartbreaking for fans to discover.
There might be some guest appearances, but we will only find that out when the new chapter goes on air.
What is the plot?
The show completed Dexter’s story in the 8 seasons, meaning that the storyline of the upcoming chapter will slightly differ from the show’s original story.
But one thing is for sure that the story will not shift away from the main characters.
The original show was about Dexter Morgan, a disguised serial killer living double lives. He somehow ends up becoming a cop. During his work hours, Dexter did police duty. And in other hours of the day, he used to kill people who were not proven guilty by the court.
Seeing him going on an expedition every day was exciting to watch. And now that the revival series has been confirmed, the showrunners noticed a spike in rating and viewership of the show.
But now the question arises, what will season 9 explore?
Fans were not satisfied with the way season 8 ended. It showed that Dexter faked his death while he lived disguised as someone else in Oregon (as a lumberjack).
The upcoming chapter will hopefully provide the fans with the ending that they deserved. We might see Dexter meeting his son again, whom he had to abandon due to the grave situation. Harrison Morgan continued living with Dexter’s love interest, Hannah McKay.
Hopefully, we will get to know more about the plot when new trailers drop.
Where can I watch the trailer?
There are no official trailers yet, but there are some teasers on Showtime’s official YouTube account.
The teasers show the viewers a glimpse of Dexter’s life and nothing more. There have been some more clips on Dexter’s Twitter account, so check them out!
An official full-length trailer is supposed to drop in the next 2 to 3 months. And don’t worry, you’ll hear about it first from us!
That was all about the new revival series of Dexter. In the meantime, would you like to read about Fear Street’s third part coming out soon on Netflix?
