The crime drama Dexter is based on the book Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay and premiered on Showtime in 2006. The show follows forensic analyst Dexter Morgan, who works for the Miami Metro Police Department and also as a serial killer.

Dexter was adopted by Miami police officer Harry Morgan, who taught Dexter to turn his sociopathic tendencies into vigilantism. The show follows Dexter as he attempts to live this double life without getting caught by his sister Deb, his co-workers, or his romantic partners. Notable guests stars included John Lithgow, Julia Stiles, and Jonny Lee Miller.

Dexter aired until 2013 when the show came to an end after eight seasons. In 2020, it was announced that Dexter would return as a 10-episode limited series titled Dexter: New Blood. The series premiered on Nov. 7, 2021.
