Back in October of 2020, it was announced that Dexter would be returning as a limited series, but now we have the official teaser that fans have been waiting for.

Actor Michael C. Hall who shot to fame as the titular character Dexter reveals his return in a subtle yet tantalizing trailer.

The thirty-second trailer begins with a view of some trees sitting on an edge of a lake before the camera reverses back through a cabin window where we are greeted by the devilish grin of Dexter.

During the teaser trailer, “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” by Nina Simone is played, which is very fitting for the complex killer.

The Dexter series was created by James Jr, and ran for eight episodes between 2006 and 2013. However, the series ended on controversial terms which left fans feeling displeased at how the seven year-long tale had ended.

To say that this series revival has been a long wait for fans is an understatement. Thankfully eight years later, the Dexter revival can right the wrong of the season eight finale. Hopefully.

Season nine of Dexter is currently set to feature 10 episodes, and according to the official description, the new season is: “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.

Clyde Phillips also returns as series showrunner, while Jamie Chung (Big Hero 6), Julia Jones (Twilight saga), Clancy Brown (Detroit: Become Human), Johnny Sequoyah (Dexter), Jack Alcott (The Good Lord Bird) and Alano Miller (Underground) will be joining the cast.

Dexter season nine will arrive later this year. Are you looking forward to the Dexter revival? Let us know across our social media channels.
