How Jennifer Carpenter will return to Dexter…

Minor Spoiler: Producers get creative as they solve a character puzzle.

Minor Spoiler:

Been wondering how Jennifer Carpenter will return for the Dexter revival, given Debra Morgan was bumped off in 2013? She was buried at sea ICYMI….

But it seems producers have come up with a plan, which is in keeping with the show.

She will be depicted  as a vision of Dexter‘s mind, much like the character of Harry did originally.

“I don’t think of her as a ghost per se, but more of a link or an echo or an inconvenient truth for Dexter,” Carpenter has said on her return, adding that she “comes back to sort of haunt and punish and caretake and provoke and love him.”

Michael C. Hall, also spoke about what Debra will bring to the table, saying: “As much as she is an internalised character for Dexter, I think she represents how far he’s fallen without a compass. I was so excited about Jennifer doing this because I knew she would be able to shape shift and come at Dexter from so many different places. And, of course, she did. And it was really fun to crack open our sense of his internal landscape, because it’s much more pyrotechnic and crazy than it used to be.”

Dexter: New Blood is due to screen later this year on Paramount+.

  1. Pretty obviously the only way it could be done, but one assumes his stepfather won’t be appearing as his erstwhile conscience anymore-the change of location to the Pacific Northwest of the US would make flashbacks to Miami pretty much impossible.

        1. I’m a huge Dexter fanboy and I never could have imagined it would ever come back in a revival series. I’m more than willing to go along for the ride with this
          I realise the change of location will bring with it definite changes from the original run but at the end of the day it’s still Dexter!
