Dexter Morgan Has A New Identity In Season 9 Of Dexter

Warning: Spoilers Ahead

The new series of bloodthirsty thriller Dexter is set to hit our screens this autumn, with fans dying to know what lies in store for the loveable psychopath.

When we last saw Dexter Morgan, he was busy faking his own death and therefore in need of a new identity.

And it looks like he's found one in Jim Lindsay.


Showtime, the studio behind the series, revealed the killer's new name in a post to its official Twitter account.

A short video was shared, which showed a nametag for Fred's Fish and Game, complete with a smiley snap of the former forensic expert.

The caption read: "Hello, D̶e̶x̶t̶e̶r̶ ̶M̶o̶r̶g̶a̶n̶ Jim Lindsay."


And the post certainly succeeded in ramping up excitement for the show's return, with fans piling into the comments to demand more info.

One user said: "Stop teasing and Drop the trailer."

Echoing the impatience, another wrote: "Since the last teaser you dropped I already binged the entire series of Dexter. Going to order the complete book series and the blu rays. I'm SOOO EXCITED for the new series."

A third said: "Release it already or knock it off."


While another added: "What an Easter egg reference to the Dexter author Jeff Lindsay!! Love it!!"

Speaking ahead of the return, Showtime's co-president of entertainment Gary Levine, said: "Dexter is such a special series, both for its millions of fans and for Showtime, as this breakthrough show helped put our network on the map many years ago.

"We would only revisit this unique character if we could find a creative take that was truly worthy of the brilliant, original series.

"Well, I am happy to report that Clyde Phillips and Michael C. Hall have found it, and we can't wait to shoot it and show it to the world."

While the show's star Michael C. Hall said he wanted to use this as an opportunity to do right by the fans.

Discussing why Dexter was coming back now, he told the Daily Beast: "It's a conversation that's been ongoing, and different possibilities have emerged over the years.

"I think in this case, the story that's being told is worth telling in a way that other proposals didn't, and I think enough time has passed where it's become intriguing in a way that it wasn't before."


He added: "And let's be real: people found the way that show left things pretty unsatisfying, and there's always been a hope that a story would emerge that would be worth telling.

"I include myself in the group of people that wondered, 'What the hell happened to that guy?' So I'm excited to step back into it. I've never had that experience of playing a character this many years on."
