Dexter: New Blood has the following synopsis:
Set 10 years after Dexter Morgan went missing in the eye of Hurricane Laura, the revival sees the character now living under an assumed name in a world away from Miami.
Michael C. Hall reprises the role of Dexter and is joined in the cast by Jennifer Carpenter as Deb; John Lithgow as the Trinity Killer; Clancy Brown as Kurt Caldwell, the primary villain and “the unofficial mayor of the small town of Iron Lake, New York”. Caldwell’s a former truck driver who now owns several trucks and the local truck stop; Jamie Chung as Molly, “a famous true-crime podcaster from Los Angeles”; Julia Jones as Angela Bishop, “the first Native American Chief of Police in her town in upstate New York”; Johnny Sequoyah as Audrey, “Bishop’s brash and opinionated teenage daughter”; Alano Miller as Logan, “a sergeant for the Iron Lake Police Department and the assistant wrestling coach for the local high school”; Michael Cyril Creighton as Fred Jr., “the congenial owner of Fred’s Fish & Game”; Oscar Wahlberg, as Zach, “the captain of the Iron Lake High School wrestling team”; and Jack Alcott as Randall, “with whom Dexter has a meaningful encounter”.
Hall executive produced this new batch of Dexter episodes alongside showrunner Clyde Phillips, John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, Bill Carraro, Scott Reynolds, and Marcos Siega, who directed six of the episodes. Siega previously directed nine episodes of Dexter over the course of its second, third, and fourth seasons. Phillips served as Dexter‘s showrunner for the first four seasons of the original run.
