    Dexter: New Blood

    Genre: Drama, Crime

    First Aired: 2021-11-07

    Creator:

    Cast: Michael C. Hall, Jack Alcott, Julia Jones, Johnny Sequoyah, Alano Miller, Clancy Brown, Jennifer Carpenter

    Overview: 10 years after Dexter went missing in the eye of Hurricane Laura, we find him living under an assumed name in the small town of Iron Lake, New York. Dexter may be embracing his new life, but in the wake of unexpected events in this close-knit community, his Dark Passenger beckons.


    If so what did you think?

    I loved the original Dexter but like most people I thought the ending was terrible and not worthy of the character so I was really looking forward to the one season reboot intended to give Dexter the ending he deserved.

    I haven't been this disappointed since I last stepped foot inside oakwell!

    Harrison was such a horrible dislikeable character, plot holes galore, characters brought in and then completely forgotten about (which is impressive within 10 episodes), it felt rushed, it contained pretty key inaccuracies from the original series (Dexter was very clear in the original series that he never used ketamin yet the finale of new blood stated that ketamin was a link to the bay harbor butcher which it couldn't have been) it teased a return from Batista and then failed to deliver, Batista having Dexter's file 10 years later in his top drawer at home despite being certain that Dexter had done nothing wrong, and it just seemed absolutely piss poor. Having Harrison kill Dexter in order to stop him from going down the path of killing made no sense. How would having him kill someone stop him becoming a killer? After 9 seasons having dexter suddenly break the code which was key to the whole series by killing the innocent school coach just didn't fit with the whole ethos of Dexter at all. The only saving grace was the excellent acting from Michael C Hall as usual

    pop it in the 'TV Shows' section

    I thought it was ok. I won't include spoilers, but not surprised how it ended. personally think it was geared towards how they keep the franchise going. which is usually the case these days.

    I may be completely wrong but if you mean keep the franchise going in the way I think you do then they've claimed that they 100% won't be doing that and that it is indeed the end. If that's the case then the ending is even poorer.

    I don't think this is a spoiler because it was only a very small detail but did you notice that in one scene near the end you could see a wedding invitation on a desk? It was for Masuka who appears to have finally found a wife. That was a nice little touch, completely random but nice nod to an old character

    from what I've read, they've said the opposite. writer has said 'would love to, but it's up to showtime'. personally don't think they should, but wouldn't surprise me if they did
