Dexter 2021 new series UK air date and channel

Dexter is to return to screens with a brand new season, airing on Sky and NOW in the UK.

Michael C. Hall will reprise his titular role for the 10-episode limited series, Dexter: New Blood.

In the UK, episodes will be available at 10PM every Monday from 8 November on Sky Atlantic and streaming service NOW.

Alongside Hall, the new series stars Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter), Julia Jones (The Mandalorian), Jack Alcott (The Good Lord Bird), Alano Miller (Sylvie’s Love), Johnny Sequoyah (Believe) and Clancy Brown (The Crown, Billions).

Set 10 years after Dexter went missing in the eye of Hurricane Laura, Dexter: New Bloodfinds him living under an assumed name in the fictional small town of Iron Lake, New York. Dexter may be embracing his new life, but in the wake of unexpected events in this close-knit community, his Dark Passenger inevitably beckons.

Dexter originally ran for 8 seasons between 2005 and 2013, following forensic technician Dexter Morgan who by day worked as a bloodstain pattern analysts and by night led a secret life as a vigilante serial killer.

The controversial series ending saw Dexter very much alive, allowing for the new episodes which are on their way.

The new season will be helmed by the show’s original executive producer Clyde Phillips and air on Showtime in the US.

Showtime Entertainment president Gary Levine said: “Dexter is such a special series, both for its millions of fans and for Showtime, as this breakthrough show helped put our network on the map many years ago.

“We would only revisit this unique character if we could find a creative take that was truly worthy of the brilliant, original series.

“Well, I am happy to report that Clyde Phillips and Michael C Hall have found it, and we can’t wait to shoot it and show it to the world!”

Alongside Michael C. Hall, the cast at the end of the previous series featured Jennifer Carpenter as Debra Morgan, David Zayas as Angel Batista, James Remar as Harry Morgan, C. S. Lee as Vince Masuka and Desmond Harrington as Joey Quinn.

For now, you can watch Dexter online here with Amazon Prime Video or get a series 1-8 box set here.

The original series is based on the novel Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay.
