‘DEXTER: NEW BLOOD’S’ THEME IS FATHERS AND SONS
Award-winning drama "DEXTER" aired for eight seasons on SHOWTIME from 2006 to 2013, earning four Emmy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and a Television Critics Association Award during its original run. Now, everyone's favorite serial killer is back in "Dexter: New Blood," a follow-up series that picks up 10 years after the original ended, but with all the major players (from both in front of and behind the camera) reuniting for this special event series — star and executive producer MICHAEL C. HALL, original showrunner CLYDE PHILLIPS, executive producer SCOTT REYNOLDS, director and executive producer Marcos Siega and star JENNIFER CARPENTER.
Plus, the character Harrison, Dexter's son, returns for the sequel, though he is played by a new actor — and that leads into the theme for "New Blood." Dexter's relationship with his late father, Harry Morgan (JAMES REMAR), was a key throughline in the original series. But now the mantle has been passed.
In the follow-up, Dexter's sister Debra (Carpenter) takes over as Dexter's conscience, and the new father-son relationship is between Dexter and his now teenage son.
