‘Dexter: New Blood’: Where You’ve Seen Those New Faces Before

by Jonathan Howard

Fans of the bloody drama, Dexter are so excited to check out the new limited series, Dexter: New Blood. The iteration of the Showtime original ended in 2013.

In the first series, the title character, Dexter trades his complicated life in Miami for a simpler one. In a cold, snowy landscape, he makes his resting place. However, fans were not satisfied with that ending and are now going to be treated to a special follow-up. Michael C. Hall returns as Dexter and we will see what the next chapter has in store.

However, not many original cast members are returning. So, let’s get into some of the new faces that fans have seen other places and should expect to see in the new series.

To get started, the main man in charge of Dexter’s new home in Iron Lake is Kurt Caldwell. Clancy Brown is the actor behind Caldwell and has been an HBO leading star as well as a horror genre icon. Of course, his most famous role is likely as Mr. Krabs on Spongebob Squarepants.

Police Chief Angela Bishop is played by Julia Jones. It’s safe to say Dexter is likely to have many interactions with Bishop. The actress, Jones, has been featured in shows such as Westworld and The Mandalorian. However, fans might recognize her for her role as Leah Clearwater in the Twilight franchise.

Then, there’s Jack Alcott, who plays Dexter’s son Harrison Morgan. Although on Dexter: New Blood he goes by Randall. For Alcott, this is his biggest role to date. He has had small spots on The Blacklist as well as The Good Lord Bird. This season is going to be full of action and drama. In fact, the showrunner thinks the end of the season will cause quite a commotion.

‘Dexter: New Blood’ Will ‘Blow Up the Internet’

With this new series, the folks working on Dexter: New Blood think this is going to be a big success. You don’t bring back such a beloved series without putting the work into it. Clyde Phillips, showrunner, is thinking that the season conclusion is going to blow viewers away.

If you are going to bring back a series like this, it needs to be done right. After one episode it is too early to tell, however, fans are open to the new show. It doesn’t seem like many quick judgments are going to be made about this one. Phillips has quite the take on the rest of the season.

“It’s going to be surprising, inevitable, and it’s going to blow up the Internet. It is, I personally think, the best thing I’ve written. …We’re editing Episodes 7 and 8 right now, so I haven’t seen 10 yet. I can’t wait to tell you the truth.”

Fans of Dexter: New Blood will have to wait and see what awaits them the rest of the season.
