Dexter Morgan was an intriguing character who captivated the hearts of millions through his show starting in 2006, and Dexter Season 9 might be on its way. The famous show premiered in 2006, but in 2022, Dexter might be taken to a whole new level with the new season, especially after the release of Dexter New Blood.
Eight years later Dexter fans got what they deserve with New Blood. The same might happen with Dexter Season 9, or the fans could just keep waiting, but which one is going to happen?
The first series followed the tale of Dexter Morgan (Hall) and you might know him for being a researcher who loves to spill some blood when the sun is up, and a vengeful serial murderer when the sun is down. Through the show we see him trying to control his urges for more and more blood, and he follows his father’s mode of morality to do that but his success is open to debate.
Now that you have some basic idea about what the show is about (or maybe remembered some of the details), let’s dive into what will happen in the case of Dexter Season 9. Will we be able to watch Dexter Season 9 this year?
Dexter Season 9 Release Date
Dexter initially aired on Showtime 15 years ago and we were delighted with the fact that the show ran for 8 seasons. However, the series had a finale that most viewers could not have a clear concluding sense, and it was an eyebrow-raising episode that was aired in 2013.
In 2021, Hall, founding showrunner Clyde Phillips, and executive producer Macros Siega returned for the release of New Blood, which aired on Showtime on Sunday, November 7 at 9 p.m. ET. Those extra 10 episodes of New Blood were enough to make fans ask for Dexter Season 9.
A Dexter Season 9 has been in the works for quite some time because, in 2021, fans were woken up with the rumor that the show will actually continue to tell the tales of Dexter Morgan.
During that time, Dexter Season 9 was expected to be launched in the fall, but obviously, it did not happen. There is not an exact date for Dexter Season 9, and the date might be subject to change in the future, so keep watching for updates as they become available. However, there was a confirmation that production for Dexter Season 9 began was as of December 2020, so it looks like we will definitely get a new season of Dexter.
Is Dexter Season 9 on Netflix?
Regrettably, Dexter is not available on Netflix anymore and we really do not understand why. In addition, the last release related to the show, Dexter: New Blood, is also not accessible on Netflix. If you want to watch Dexter Season 9, you will have to follow the original broadcasting program Showtime.
But it is interesting that all 8 seasons of Dexter were available on Netflix but all of them were withdrawn from Netflix at the end of 2020. There are plenty of other excellent programs available on Netflix though, so maybe you should check them out on that streaming platform.
What is Dexter: New Blood about?
In July 2021, we got the chance to watch the first exclusive sneak peek teaser of New Blood. In the clip, Dexter Morgan finally decides to talk about his issues to a person who knows what he is doing – a therapist, which makes a lot of sense, right? Dexter talks over the trailer and we see him working in a small shop that seems isolated from other people and we guess that he is actually trying to not kill anymore.
Will that work for Dexter is a question that only Dexter Season 9 can answer. From the trailer, we are guessing that Dexter Season 9 will delve into the issue of his desire to kill and how he will try to fight it in his own way.
Watch the trailer of Dexter Season 9 below.
Dexter’s cast has not been seen together in a long time after the surprising end of Dexter Season 8. Of course, there was Dexter: New Blood that ended in 2021, but that didn’t bring back all of the original cast members together.
Throughout the 8 seasons of Dexter, Michael C. Hall shared the screen for the show with Jennifer Carpenter (Debra Morgan), David Zayas (Angel Batista), James Remar (Harry Morgan), C.S. Lee (Vince Masuka), Luna Lauren Velez (Mara LaGuerta), Desmond Harrington (Joey Quinn), Julie Benz (Rita Bennett), and many more successful actors that deserved to be on Dexter’s cast.
