Showtime Orders DEXTER: ORIGINS to Series

February 6, 2023 by  


Showtime has ordered DEXTER: ORIGINS, a new DEXTER prequel story, straight to series.

According to the network, “DEXTER: ORIGINS will dramatize young Dexter Morgan at the outset of his transition into the avenging serial killer he would become. Set in the Miami that was a hotbed of real serial killers of his time, the show will begin as Dexter graduates college to join Miami Metro, where he meets younger versions of many of the characters we came to know in the original DEXTER. And, of course, the show will also focus on Dexter’s family, including a very-much-alive Harry and a very formidable, teenage Deb.” DEXTER vet Clyde Phillips will executive produce the series.

“The DEXTER saga has been an undeniable creative and popular success for SHOWTIME, both in its original, groundbreaking form and the record-setting DEXTER: NEW BLOOD,” said Chris McCarthy, President/CEO, Showtime and Paramount Media Networks, in a statement. “The series is a rich foundation for other shows in the lane of complex, subversive antiheroes that SHOWTIME has always done so brilliantly. Clyde is deep into compelling stories and characters that will satisfy the cravings of our multifaceted audience.”

Added Phillips: “I couldn’t be more excited about exploring and expanding the universe of DEXTER. It’s a privilege to contemplate going even deeper with these complex and iconic characters – and the stories, themes and possibilities they inspire. I’m thrilled that Chris and my friends at SHOWTIME want me to help them grow this truly unique and amazingly successful franchise.”

That isn’t the only DEXTER project in the works at Showtime: They’re also developing a “new version of DEXTER: NEW BLOOD, which depicts the ongoing emergence of Dexter’s son Harrison” as well as “projects based on other characters from the DEXTER universe, such as the makings of the notorious Trinity Killer originally played by Emmy winner John Lithgow.”
