New Blood episode 11? Is the series over?


When Dexter came to an end in 2013, few would have expected to see Michael C. Hall return to the role of the forensic expert-turned-serial killer.

In 2021, however, Showtime unexpectedly revived the series in the form of Dexter: New Blood and each episode has been packed with plenty of twists and turns.

Episode 10 proved to be a climactic affair for Dexter Morgan but fans have been left asking if there will there be an episode 11 in Dexter: New Blood.

Dexter: New Blood episode 10 recap

Episode 10 of Dexter: New Blood arrived on Showtime in the US on Sunday, January 9th, 2022.

Set more than 10 years after he originally faked his death in the season 8 finale, the climactic episode of New Blood, titled Sins of the Father, finally brought an end to Dexter’s story.

With the net tightening around him, Dexter is arrested for the murder of Matt Caldwell, but with some clever manipulation and the murder of innocent Logan, he manages to escape.

Dexter finds his way to Harrison and admits that his long-standing code is somewhat flawed and Dexter finally concludes that the only way for his son to have a normal life is for Dexter to die.

Harrison obliges, shooting his father dead before Angela arrives on the scene and tells him to make himself scarce, planning on taking the blame instead.

The episode ends with Harrison reading Dexter’s final letter to Hannah before he leaves town to begin a new chapter.

Will there be an episode 11 in Dexter: New Blood?

No, there will not be an episode 11 in Dexter: New Blood season 1.

That’s because the Showtime series only consists of 10 episodes in total and the final instalment has now aired.

The new series premiered on November 7th in the US and one new episode has aired each week until episode 10 arrived on January 9th (January 10th in the UK).

As the series has progressed, the titles of all 10 episodes were revealed:

Will Dexter: New Blood return for season 2?

Dexter: New Blood was not initially expected to return for season 2.

That’s because the new show was billed as a limited mini-series, meaning that its story is told over just one season.

And now that Dexter himself is dead, it does tie up his story quite neatly. As such, any continuation from here would have to focus on his son, Harrison, who skipped town after killing his father.

Speaking to Deadline about the prospects of a renewal, Showtime’s President of Entertainment Gary Levine said: “Dexter is a limited series and any further discussions of Dexter will have to wait until we finish airing the limited series and see where we are with our stories and our characters.”

However, speaking to TVLine, New Blood’s showrunner Clyde Phillips didn’t rule out the possibility of doing more.

“It’s all in Showtime’s hands,” he said. “If they were to call me and say, ‘We want to do Harrison. We want you to figure it out.’”

“I’m pretty busy, but I would drop everything I’m doing and jump right into it,” he continued. “I would love to do it, but it’s really up to Showtime.”
