After faking his death in the (kinda crapy) season 8 finale years ago, we now have confirmation that Dexter Morgan will be assuming a new identity for his big return in season 9.
A brand new teaser has revealed that the elusive serial killer, played by Michael C Hall, now goes by the name Jim Lindsay, a sales associate at Fred’s Fish & Game.

A pretty cool reference to Jeff Lindsay – the writer of the Dexter books.
Like the rest of us, actor Michael C Hall hopes the new season will make up for the poorly-received season finale (although you’d hope it also makes up for seasons 5 – 8 entirely). He told the Daily Beast:
It’s a conversation that’s been ongoing, and different possibilities have emerged over the years.
I think in this case, the story that’s being told is worth telling in a way that other proposals didn’t, and I think enough time has passed where it’s become intriguing in a way that it wasn’t before.
And let’s be real: people found the way that show left things pretty unsatisfying, and there’s always been a hope that a story would emerge that would be worth telling.
Will be interesting to see how Dexter/Jeff uses his new occupation to his advantage. I’m guessing he’s still going to be out there murdering people – maybe he’ll take his targets ice fishing and then slaughter them on the water?
Hopefully we get an actual trailer soon with a little more insight into what’s in store for season 9. Seasons 1 – 4 were pretty great so with any luck it’ll be more of that and less of what we got in the latter seasons.
Season 9 is due for release in Autumn 2021.
