Showtime Reportedly Kills Off Dexter: New Blood Season 2 (But May Revive The Franchise For A Prequel)

Per TV Line, “Dexter: New Blood” will end life as a miniseries, which apparently surprised some of their sources, as the show was enormously successful for Showtime. In fact, it was their most watched original series of all time.

And yet … if you watched the show, and (spoiler alert!) if you didn’t, with Dexter dead and only Harrison still alive, one is left with the question of what the show would have done with a second season, anyhow. TV Line confirms that the next chapter in the story would have followed Harrison’s life through serial killing, adhering to the moral code his father abandoned, after having killed Dexter for murdering Sgt. Logan (Alano Miller) in the first season’s final episode. Would Dexter have become a physical embodiment of the “dark passenger” that drives Harrison the same way his own dark passenger drove him? Fans will never know.

Still, don’t count this narrative out just yet, because Showtime apparently has another idea for the franchise — it’s considering launching a “Young Dexter” series, which will follow a pint-sized version of Dexter through his youth, where we all know his killing spree began. 

Hopefully fans will turn up for this macabre-sounding twist on Dexter’s story, particularly if they preferred the ending of “New Blood” to the one offered by the show’s original run.
