New episodes will launch every Tuesday for 16 weeks. It will be accessible everywhere podcasts are available including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and on the Showtime YouTube channel.

Reynolds expressed his excitement about bringing back the podcast series saying,

Resurrecting America’s favorite serial killer puts viewers in the passenger seat as I, along with my special guests, will lay it all out on the kill table. This podcast is the perfect companion piece to cut deep into the dark drama that’s Dexter. Was he a good guy doing bad things or a bad guy doing good things? Or was he just a misunderstood man with a large collection of knives and way too much plastic wrap?

Besides returning cast members Hall, Carpenter, and Lithgow, the cast of Dexter: New Blood also includes some new faces. Clancy Brown plays Kurt Caldwell, the unofficial mayor of the town of Iron Lake with a darkness hidden underneath his charm. Julia Jones plays Dexter's new girlfriend Angela Bishop who also happens to be the Iron Lakes Chief of Police. Jamie Chung stars as Molly Park, a famous true-crime podcaster. And Jack Alcott plays Dexter's son, Harrison, now all grown-up and reuniting with his dad.
