Hopefully the series can improve on that lackluster ending to the original.

Showtime has released the first trailer for their eagerly-anticipated revival of serial killer drama Dexter.
It was unveiled yesterday during the network’s virtual ComicCon@Home panel where it was also announced that this ten-episode outing will be subtitled Dexter: New Blood.
Picking up eight years after the events of the original series which saw the titular serial killer (Michael C. Hall) fake his own death, the clip shows him living under an assumed name in the tiny town of Iron Lake, New York.
Although he’s now a seemingly popular member of the local community and owner of a successful sporting goods store, we see that he’s still unable to resist acting on the same old dark urges.
Joining Hall for the revival are new cast members Julia Jones, Alano Miller, Johnny Sequoyah, Jack Alcott, Jamie Chung and Clancy Brown.
John Lithgow and Jennifer Carpenter are also expected to return in some capacity, despite both being killed off in the original series, as the feared Trinity Killer and Dexter’s beloved sister Debra respectively.
Dexter originally ran for eight seasons between 2006 and 2013 initially earning acclaim from both fans and critics alike.
Opinion soured slightly as the series progressed with many left feeling incredibly disappointed by its finale which drew the largest audience in Showtime’s history with 2.8 million viewers
Dexter: New Blood will premiere in the US on 7th November but it's not yet known when it will hit UK screens.
