Television’s favorite serial killer is set to return after an eight-year hiatus. The new series titled, Dexter: New Blood is set to premiere in November this year. The critically acclaimed show was arguably the most popular on television at that time but was let down by its underwhelming finale. The new limited series hopes to give Dexter Morgan a fitting farewell. So, here are some interesting trivia about Dexter, aka The Bay Harbour Butcher. 

1. Jennifer Carpenter and John Lithgow will reprise their roles as Deborah Morgan and The Trinity Killer respectively for the upcoming limited series Dexter: New Blood, despite their characters being killed off in the original series.

2. For the final season of Dexter, actor David Zayas, who played series regular Angel Batista, was replaced by his son David Zayas Jr as a stand-in for a few shots because of how similar they looked. 

3. In season one of Dexter, he uses an alias to steal tranquilizer drugs. The alias he used was Patrick Bateman, which is Christian Bale’s character from the film American Psycho

4. The character Arthur Mitchel aka the Trinity Killer, played by John Lithgow has parallels to a real-life serial killer, BTK Killer. They both led normal lives with families, and both were well-respected members of society. The BTK killer also features heavily in David Fincher’s Netflix show, Mindhunter.

That's some lesser-known trivia about Dexter for you on OTTplay Now You Know, I shall be back with another film or show soon, until then it's Nikhil outta here.
