Showtime Announces Dexter Season 9

by | Oct 15, 2020

Holy shit horror fans… you may want to grab yourself a seat as we have some news that might just make your legs wobbly. It’s been officially announced that our favourite crime fighting serial killer will be returning to our screens after an eight year break.

Yep, America’s favorite serial killer, Dexter, is returning to Showtime next year. The network has ordered 10 episodes for a limited series, which could mean that we’ll get a the final series fans have been calling for.



Michael C Hall is set to reprise his role as the forensic blood spatter analyst who splits his time between working with the police and being a vigilante killer.

Gary Levine, president of entertainment at Showtime, said

“We would only revisit this unique character if we could find a creative take that was truly worthy of the brilliant, original series. Well, I am happy to report that (executive producer) Clyde Phillips and Michael C Hall have found it.”

Production kicks off later this year and it’s likely to be broadcast in autumn 2021.

When the show ended in 2013, Dexter was left in self-exile as a lumberjack in Oregon. Fans were angry at this conclusion, with many believing that Dexter should have paid for his crimes. There has been much conversations about this in the 8 years since it left our airways. With the show only being “limited” it means that there is no long term plan for the series, which means that we may just the ending fans want.
