Dexter is a forensic blood spatter expert for the Miami Metro Police Department. Based on a code given to him by his foster father, Harry, he survives ethically as a serial killer. He utilizes his expertise, often withholding evidence from the police so he can solve murders and kill the killers either before they kill again, or before they are caught by the police.

'Dexter' Returning For 2021 Limited Series

Showtime announced today that Dexter will be making a return to television in a limited series revival set to make its debut next year. It has been seven years since the serial killer drama ended its initial run.
The original series followed the story of Dexter, who was orphaned as a young child and raised by a police officer who took notice that he was displaying sociopathic tendencies. To give Dexter an outlet for his twisted urge to kill, he teaches him to target only people who have slipped through the cracks of the justice system. Working as a blood spatter analyst, Dexter is able to cover up his own crimes while hiding in a role where nobody would think to look.
The reboot will see Michael C. Hall reprise his tile role, with Clyde Phillips onboard as showrunner. 10 episodes have reportedly been ordered for an expected return in the Fall of 2021.

Showtime president David Nevis dropped a massive tease for a potential Dexter spinoff Tuesday at the TV Critics Associations summer press. Nothing is actively happening but Dexter showrunner Scott Buck has a two-year deal to develop new projects. At this point none of the cast members have extended their contracts and Nevis says they are going to focus on completing Dexter before anything else.
