In the season, the bodies of Dexter's victims are uncovered and an investigation is launched in Dexter's own department to find the killer, dubbed the "Bay Harbor Butcher".[7] During this time, Debra struggles to recover after surviving the Ice Truck Killer's attempt to murder her, and Rita sends Dexter to Narcotics Anonymous meetings when he tells her that he has an "addiction".[7] Sergeant James Doakes (Erik King) stalks Dexter, suspecting that he is connected with the Ice Truck Killer murders.[8] Three new characters are introduced:[9] Keith Carradine appears as Special Agent Frank Lundy, an FBI agent who heads the Bay Harbor Butcher investigation;[10] JoBeth Williams as Rita's mother Gail; and Jaime Murray as Lila Tournay, Dexter's Narcotics Anonymous sponsor.[11]


The season received universal acclaim from critics, and was praised as "one of the best shows on TV this decade" by the Chicago Sun-Times,[12] while Variety considers Hall's portrayal of the title character as a "towering achievement, one that eclipses the show's other shortcomings and rough patches";[13] the aggregate site Metacritic scored the season at 85 out of 100 based on 11 reviews.[12]


Taking place a month after the first-season finale, Dexter has been unable to kill anyone due to Sgt. James Doakes monitoring his activities and his sister Debra now living with him as she recovers from her traumatic experiences concerning Brian, the Ice Truck Killer. Dexter also realizes that he's having trouble killing even when he has the opportunity, due to feelings of guilt over killing his brother Brian.


To ensure he's not identified as the Bay Harbor Butcher, Dexter finds a new dumping area with current that leads to the Atlantic Ocean. He also falsifies records, destroys evidence, and contaminates refrigerated remains to throw the investigators off his trail. Despite this, Lundy narrows down his suspect search to people in Miami with police training. Dexter puts his guilt over Brian behind him and returns to killing. Dexter later learns that his biological mother died because she was a criminal working as a confidential informant for Harry and had an affair with him. Dexter wonders if he was adopted because Harry felt guilty for his mother's death and he also learns that Harry didn't die of natural causes but purposefully overdosed to cause his own death. He doesn't understand why until later in the season.

Now, McCarthy announced Dexter: Origins has been given a straight-to-series order, with Dexter seasons 1-4 and New Blood showrunner Clyde Phillips returning as executive producer. Dexter: Origins will follow the character during his early years as a serial killer, starting as he graduates college to join Miami Metro and meets young versions of characters from the original show. Dexter's adoptive father, Harry, and his teenage sister Deb will also be a focus of the prequel. A continuation of Dexter: New Blood is also in development. The new version of the series will follow Harrison as he flees to New York and wrestles with his inner darkness, wondering if he is doomed to follow in his father's footsteps and give in to his urges.

Showtime canceled Dexter: New Blood season 2, but that may be the best choice to protect season 1's ending. At the end of January 2023, it was announced that Showtime is no longer moving forward with Dexter: New Blood season 2 and will focus on a Dexter prequel series instead. The news came days after the Showtime and Paramount+ streaming merger announcement. While Showtime's decision to axe Dexter: New Blood may upset some fans, New Blood's season 1 controversial ending proves that Dexter's story needs to end.


Dexter: New Blood took place ten years after the events of the acclaimed Showtime original Dexter. New Blood season 1 was a huge success for Showtime and was the most-watched series in the cable network's history. The sequel series put Dexter's relationship with his son Harrison at the center. Harrison's struggle with his own Dark Passenger seemed a good way to set up New Blood season 2. However, New Blood season 1 attempted to give Dexter consequences for his actions, leading Harrison to reject Dexter's methods. The result was an ending that satisfied very few Dexter fans.


While the relative ambiguity of the Dexter: New Blood season 1 ending did make fertile ground for another season, doing so would spoil the intrigue of the finale. New Blood season 2 would have to answer most of the first season's lingering questions, such as what is next for Harrison's future. While the ending seemed to suggest Harrison chose not to follow in his father's path, murdering his father may have fed his Dark Passenger instead of destroying it. After all, who knows what killing his own father would do to his psyche?


Harrison started New Blood season 1 looking for his father who had been missing most of his life. In addition to losing both of his parents and Hannah, Harrison was tortured by his own Dark Passenger, which is to say Harrison was not in the best spot mentally before New Blood season 1. The ending of season 1 forced him to shoot his father, leaving him on his own again. New Blood left Harrison's next steps a mystery, fitting for the shocking finale.


Because Dexter: New Blood closed the chapter on Dexter, it would seem silly to continue his legacy through Harrison. If Harrison did continue to struggle with his Dark Passenger, it would nullify what he learned in season 1 and render Dexter's death meaningless. Therefore, the only option for the Dexter franchise is a prequel. While there are many different characters that the Dexter franchise could use in the prequel, one idea would be to follow Dr. Evelyn Vogel and explore how she treated her patients. In Dexter season 8, it was revealed that Dr. Vogel helped Dexter's father Harry develop the code.


Following Charlotte Rampling's Dr. Vogel could continue the show's themes without having Harrison unlearn everything that Dexter: New Blood set up. Alternatively, the prequel series could follow Harry and Dexter as a child, which could also explore Dr. Vogel's methods. The possibilities for a Dexter prequel are endless, but a Dexter: New Blood season 2 ran out of plausible ideas before it even started. 041b061a72
