Dexter New Blood Season 2 Updates You Need To Know Today!
You’ve probably heard the expression “when one door closes, another opens.” With the season one finale of Dexter: New Blood, it appears that the show has taken this to a literal level.
After ten years of believing he had gotten away with murder, the serial killer with a conscience made his way back onto our television screens. However, even living in the picturesque town of Iron Lake was not enough to keep the Dark Passenger from calling to him from within his own mind.
When you factor in the return of your long-lost child, it was only a matter of time before things began to go horribly wrong in a very short period of time.
Despite the fact that the show’s future appears to be sealed, Dexter has proven himself to be a survivor on more than one occasion and may now be able to continue in some form.
There is no one, not even the top brass, who believes this story is done for good.
Are you unsure of what we’re referring to? You can read on for everything you need to know about the possibility of a second season and beyond.
Will There Be a Dexter: New Blood Season 2?
Based on what you saw in the season finale, you would assume the answer to this question is “no.” As a result of the revelations about his history, Dexter – who had reinvented himself as local shop clerk Jim Lindsay – was eventually brought to a brutal conclusion.
Yes, the character famously played by Michael C Hall has passed away after a confrontation with his difficult and distant teenage son, Harrison, in which he was severely beaten and beaten (Jack Alcott).
However, this does not imply that the battle is over.
In the finale, it appeared as the couple had finally bonded as a result of their reunion, with them both admitting to having dark sides and a desire to kill. It was due to previous childhood trauma when both were tragically left crying and covered in their parents’ blood after their deaths, as Dexter himself would relate, that they were both “born in blood,” as he would put it.
As Dexter’s past transgressions caught up with him, Harrison ended up turning a pistol on his father after he failed to follow his own rules about who should and shouldn’t live.
The first rule: Kill only those who deserve it. Dexter broke it by killing a cop holding him.
The enigmatic Bay Harbour Butcher was most likely Angel’s old blood-spatter analyst pal. So the net was closing in on Dexter.
Alcott described what it was like to portray the villain who killed a beloved anti-hero.
“I was worried after we shot it because I thought I’d killed Dexter. I’ll be America’s most loathed man for a week’, “the actor remarked (via Esquire).
As the show’s creator said, “There’s probably some guilt involved in murdering off one of the coolest TV characters ever.”
Alcott admits to feeling the pressure during the climactic death scene.
“It was the most stressful thing I did on the shoot,” he said.
“My first reaction was, “How am I going to live up to all this hype?” Missing the context'”
His nerves were calmed by Hall and the executive producers.
“The pistol came up way sooner in the original version of the sequence,” Alcott recalls.
“Playing with it revealed that it appears later, allowing for more detailed scenes. It’s less about an enraged son shooting his father and more about both parties realizing this is how it’s supposed to end.”
“But I also feel lucky to be a part of a tale that will touch many. It’s nice to tell stories that influence people, no matter how they feel about it.”
Season two has already been confirmed despite the main character dying.
“It’s all up to Showtime,” showrunner Clyde Phillips told TVLine. If they called and said, ‘We want to do Harrison. We want you to figure it out,’ I’m busy, but I’d drop everything and dive in. Showtime decides whether or not I can do it.
The network’s outstanding results certainly support the desire to keep Dexter: New Blood going.
According to TV Line, the show averaged 8 million weekly viewers across all media. 3 million viewers turned in on the first night, making it the most-watched Showtime finale in eight years, only behind the 3.3 million viewers who watched the Dexter finale in 2013.
No official announcement of its return has been made as of February 2022. It’s only a question of time.
Dexter: New Blood Season 2 Cast – Who Will Be in It?
If season two goes ahead (though no official announcements have been made), the show will focus on Dexter’s son Harrison, played by Jack Alcott.
The juvenile son of a serial killer was last seen fleeing after killing his father. After finding Harrison’s body, police chief Angela Bishop (Julia Jones) took the responsibility for Dexter’s death, allowing him to move on from his father’s murder.
We’re not sure she made the best choice given his own dangerous killing streak, but there you go.
With a new opportunity in life, Harrison isn’t sure what he’ll do with his father’s moral killer code.
As a result, who will join the cast is uncertain. He has no known living relatives. He could go anyplace.
His real mother died in Dexter season four. Between the original series and New Blood, we found that Hannah, Dexter’s girlfriend who left with Harrison for a better life, died of cancer off-screen. It’s the sole reason Harrison looked for Dexter.
Now his dad’s gone? The sky is the limit for this disturbed adolescent
What Will Dexter: New Blood Season 2’s Plot Be Like?
Showrunner Clyde Phillips has gone on record to state that he would be up for a season two, it would just be a case of US network Showtime giving them the go-ahead.
In a chat with Deadline, he confirmed that this would mean moving forward with Harrison in the central role.
“Harrison is such a complicated character and he has within him the seeds of the dark passenger,” he told them. “He’s capable. Look at that takedown of Dexter in the end, what’s in Harrison is that he has to kill this man.”
“Also, Harrison brings a different perspective to the vigilantism of it all than Dexter did, which was kind of surprising to Dexter,” Phillips adds. “He brings this youthful, optimistic innocence, that he and his dad are basically Batman and Robin – ‘Think of every time we take out one of these bad guys how many lives we’re saving, that this bad person is not going to kill.’
