A QUICK EXPLANATION OF THE PLOT OF DEXTER: NEW BLOOD
Dexter Morgan, who pretended to die in a hurricane ten years prior, relocated to the fictitious little town of Iron Lake, New York, where he went by the alias Jim Lindsay and worked as a cashier at a nearby retailer of outdoor recreational equipment. He has been able to control his inclination to commit vigilante murders in large numbers thanks to his romantic relationship with the town’s police head, Angela Bishop. Instead of their father, Harry, Dexter now frequently converses with his dead sister Debra. In the opening scene, Harrison, his estranged son from a past life, shows up without warning and with unidentified intentions. Dexter worries that the “Dark Passenger” within him and possibly his son will come to light after a succession of incidents in the Iron Lake area.

Oscar Wahlberg and Jamie Chung were given recurring roles on February 11, 2021. John Lithgow joined the cast on June 28, 2021, and had a brief cameo as Arthur Mitchell, the Trinity Killer. On July 13, 2021, it was revealed that original series regular Jennifer Carpenter would return to the limited series in some way to reprise her role as Dexter’s sister Debra.

LET’S HAVE A LOOK AT THE RATING OF THE DEXTER: NEW BLOOD
Rotten Tomatoes, a review aggregator, reported a 77% approval rating based on 56 reviews with an average score of 7.20/10. According to the website’s critics consensus, “Dexter: New Blood helps restore some of the sparkle lost by the show’s acrimonious climax,” which is “anchored by Michael C. Hall’s still-compelling depiction of the titular character.” Based on 29 reviews, Metacritic gave the series a weighted average score of 61/100, indicating “generally good reviews.” The series finale, in particular, garnered poor reviews from viewers and received the lowest rating of the entire run. It received a 4.6/10 from IMDb users, scoring more melancholy than the contentious 4.7/10 of the season eight conclusion. Hall was also named TVLine’s Performer of the Week for January 15, 2022.
A QUICK GLANCE AT THE FILMING LOCATIONS OF DEXTER: NEW BLOOD
Dexter Morgan fled with his fiancée Hannah and kid Harrison at the end of the seventh season to live a tranquil life in Argentina. Dexter flew to Oregon to become a lumberjack after realising that parenting his son could mean that he had to abandon his violent tendencies. Dexter eventually made it to Iron Lake, New York, where he adopted the identity of Jim Lindsay and pledged never to kill again, according to Dexter: New Blood. Miami is nothing like Iron Lake. One is that it is cold. Extremely cold Hunting is the main draw to the community, and crime is hardly ever an issue. When everyone knows everyone and dead bodies aren’t frequent occurrences, there is no need for a blood spatter analyst or detective. The stakes have increased for the character that terrorised late-2000s television because of the new setting. It’s just a matter of time until someone starts looking at the man with the enigmatic/unknown past when town residents start going missing.
