10 years after Dexter went missing in the eye of Hurricane Laura, we find him 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.
**SPOILERS** I can only talk for myself of course, but I thoroughly enjoyed this Dexter revival/miniseries. It's nothing as good as the phenomenal season four and probably is a tad short when compared to the seasons that precede the aforementioned, but it's without doubt much better than anything that followed The Trinity Killer. It's an absolute joy to see Michael C. Hall back as Dexter, it's testament to his acting and the character that you genuinely love to watch him. Jennifer Carpenter's return as Debra is also terrific, as is the late reappearance of the awesome Batista (David Zayas) but also the newcomers to the series are enjoyable too. I got attached to the community of characters pretty much instantly, with the standouts being Jack Alcott, Julia Jones and Clancy Brown. I'd be up for seeing more, honestly. I found the story to be rather engrossing, it got me tense and uncomfortable a fair few times. I see some say it's rushed, I won't quite say that but the last few episodes do feel a bit sped up - but I gained much entertainment from it and feel happy about the ending, which is much more satisfying than the original conclusion that we got. I see IMDb reviewers have the final episode as the serie's lowest ever, which is absolute rubbish in my opinion - borderline insulting, in fact. I read there are rumours of a continuation of some sort. I'd be up for one no doubt, but I'd be pleased if it ended here too.
It's a decent sequel for the original Dexter. Let's be honest, original Dexter didn't have the end it deserved. No one like it's end. The TV show was begging to give it a good ending and I believe this is why this sequel happened and it does exactly why it was created - it ends appropriately which won't leave with you with questions. I won't write any spoilers, but I will say that it's super interesting and doesn't disappoint at all. I give it 10/10 stars.
