Review Dexter: New Blood doesn’t disappoint old fans of TV series – Serial Assassin has made a great return to his roots

Moral serial killer Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) returns after nearly 10 years in a new series on Paramount +. Dexter: New Blood is working to fix a catastrophic bad ending to the original series.

Between 2006 and 2013, received eight production seasons Dexter Dexter Morgan, a crime scene investigator in the Miami Police Department (Michael C. Hall), who lived Dual Life alongside his dates as a serial killer. Dexter’s charm was based on the fact that the murderous figure was not unequivocally evil — after all, he killed only the bad guys the law didn’t catch — the resulting contradiction also made the viewer reflect on his own moral conception.

Although Dexter had his own moral code regarding his victims, he still enjoyed spectacular scenery and bloodshed during the killing. Nonetheless, a positive-toned relationship emerged with the character, and the central tension in the series was whether Dexter would ever get caught, and if so, how his close circle would react to his actions.

Like so many series before and after Dexter, this series had plenty of manuscript ups and downs. In recent seasons, there have been more ups and downs and the final season is considered one of the worst stops of all time in the history of TV series.

After all, the original Dexter ended with the name character on stage of his own death and was seen at the end of the last episode as a bearded sequel to a remote American region. No wonder, then, that there is now a desire to return to the character and (hopefully) make up for the resentment caused to fans of that last episode of the series.

Paramount+:n Dexter: New Blood is a sequel to the original Dexter, but instead of a 9th production season, there has been a desire to create a completely separate mini-series for the story (the authors have not yet wanted to reveal any possible sequel, which is why the series now beginning is still called a mini-series).

Dexter: In New Blood, a whole decade has passed since the events of the original series. Dexter has left behind both sunny Miami and his logger life, and now lives by a new identity in a small town called Iron Lake on the north east coast of the United States.

At the beginning of the series, he is Jim Lindsay (the name is a tribute to the author of Dexter Books) Jeff Lindsaylle), who works in the arms trade, socializes with the local police chief and is, moreover, the backbone of his society. At home, he lives like a sober alcoholic from day to day without murder.

The old familiar Dexter is seen as the voice of his conscience, the new “gloomy traveler” Debra’s sister who has returned to portray Jennifer Carpenter. The blood continues to draw towards the blood and, like an alcoholic, Dexter eventually hikes out when a big enough bastard hits the spot. Although Hall comments that his character is an “evolved monster,” a familiar twinkle in the corner of his eye restores the mood to what makes Dexter Dexter.

In ten years, technology has evolved, which also poses challenges for the ever-covering Dexter – as does the white glowing snow (against which the red blood splashes are particularly visible) for a Florida resident accustomed to the proximity of the ocean.

We got four of the 10 episodes of the new series to watch in advance. These episodes show a certain kind of return to the roots as strong. Dexter: New Blood’s producer in the first four seasons of the original series Clyde Phillips.

In addition to internal speech, the key element of the new series is Dexter’s relationship with his son Harrison, a son abandoned by his father and now growing up as a teenager (Jack Alcott) returns to his father’s life with a rumble.

Harrison’s return encapsulates the greatest fear of Dexter’s life: has the boy been able to grow up without his father into an ordinary, balanced teenager, or is this a similar, weighty, murderous creature with his grim passenger like his father – or possibly a psychopath like Trinity Killer.

During the first four episodes, the subject is pushed in such an interesting way that, after the last preliminary period, a small outcry of frustration could have escaped the signatory – the story would have taken its toll and should have been followed up immediately.

Dexter’s return looks new, but has a very loyal feel to the original series. So the series revolves around the little finger of an old Dexter fan from the first episode. Sure, we’ve seen huge setbacks at Dexter before after a great start, and in just over half a season, there’s still time to happen, but at least the first episodes leave a positive feeling about the sequel.

Maybe Dexter will get a worthy end now? This remains to be seen, with a slightly fearful anticipation.

It is also very positive that the representation of American indigenous peoples in film and television has finally begun to diversify from the raw or “sublimely wild” roles of old Western films. This was reflected in Disney +, among other things Reservation Dogs series and now also in Dexter New Blood, where he will rise to a central role Julia Jones presented by Police Chief Angela.

Disappearances in the residential area of ​​Native Americans are also included. This topic is addressed in the series by some actor holding a true crime podcast (Jamie Chung).
