Does New Blood Revive Dexter’s Unpopular Ending? You Can Find Out At Showmax


Dexter is one of the most-watched and popular TV shows of recent times.

Starring Michael C. Hall as a police blood-spatter analyst who also moonlights as a serial killer at night named Dexter Morgan, the show has a fair share of fans across the globe.

A serial killer with a code – he only kills criminals who do not get justice from the police, so there is that.

Those who have not watched it can do so on Shomwax – and there is no other video streaming service that has that series.

It is awesome right from the start and will keep you engaged over for 8 seasons of terrific TV. You will see its lows and highs, get your feelings twisted from time, and if you manage to get to Season 8, then the ending will somehow disappoint you.

Which is where Dexter: New Blood comes in. It started streaming in late 2021, and after 10 episodes, the mini-series came to an end.

At the risk of posting a spoiler for you, the ending isn’t what I expected, although some viewers may be satisfied with what happens to Dexter. It is somewhat a bitter-sweet conclusion of a show that rattled many fans who wanted to see retribution for all the vices Dexter conducted.

‘In his old life, Dexter Morgan was a Miami forensics expert, spending his days solving crimes, and nights committing them. Torn between his deadly compulsion and his desire for true happiness, Dexter is a man in profound conflict with the world and himself.

Set 10 years after Dexter went missing in the eye of Hurricane Laura, Dexter: New Blood finds everyone’s favourite serial killer living under an assumed name in the 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 beckons…

The original Dexter won a People’s Choice Award as Favourite TV Obsession and four Emmys, including Best Director, with Michael C Hall, nominated as Best Actor in a Drama five times in a row. Hall also won Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe awards. All eight seasons are available to binge on Showmax.’

The other good news is that you can watch the miniseries on Showmax now. It costs KES 1050, and the Pro version, which is equipped with live TV and sports channels, costs KES 2100.


  1. Many fans have been disappointed with the ending of the Showtime series Dexter. The show was extremely popular, but the series’ ending was not the most liked. A fan of the series commented on the lack of closure in the series’ final season, calling it the worst in television history. However, fans were quick to defend the new version of the series. In the first trailer for the new show, the series’ main character Dexter Morgan seems to have a more normal, human side. He’s also able to maintain his family, his job and his friends.
