Working as a blood spatter analyst, Dexter is able to cover up his own crimes while hiding in a role where nobody would think to look.
The reboot will see Michael C. Hall reprise his tile role, with Clyde Phillips onboard as showrunner. 10 episodes have reportedly been ordered for an expected return in the Fall of 2021.
