Dexter Season 9 — a.k.a. the new Dexter continuation series — will drop later in 2021, but fans might only be a few days away from seeing a full trailer. Fans have been teased by quick glimpses at Dexter Morgan's (Michael C. Hall) new life in a snowy locale, but we have yet to see a fleshed-out preview for the new season. But that will change on July 25. However, will all fans be able to check it out?
The creative minds behind Dexter are virtually appearing for San Diego Comic-Con's Comic-Con@Home event on July 25 from 1-2 p.m. PT (4-5 p.m. ET). This panel will give some insights into the new season, which shares continuity with the original Dexter show but is being billed as an all-new production with mostly new characters. These kinds of panels often feature big treats for fans, namely trailers. This will be no different for Dexter Season 9 as a trailer — or at least a less cryptic teaser — will drop during the panel.
It's not clear if the hypothetical trailer would be released online officially after the fact. Sometimes, productions like to keep big premieres like that special for the watching attendees, meaning viewers who don't tune in live have to wait to see it. Showtime has already set this precedent with the new Dexter season by showing the first teaser during a virtual ViacomCBS investor presentation but not releasing it to the public until weeks later.
The panel's official description reads, "America's Favorite serial killer is back. Currently in production on 10 new episodes, Dexter, premieres on SHOWTIME this fall. Join award-winning star Michael C Hall (Dexter, executive producer), Clyde Phillips (showrunner, executive producer), Scott Reynolds (executive producer), Marcos Siega (executive producer, director), and Dexter newcomer Julia Jones (Angela) in a virtual panel discussion moderated by entertainment journalist and Dexter super fan Kristin Dos Santos. Tune in for a never-seen-before sneak peek trailer for a look at what's to come."
Dexter Season 9 has no release date as of press time, but the show's original run is streaming via Showtime. The series is based on characters in Jeff Lindsay's Darkly Dreaming Dexter and other novels. Disclosure: PopCulture is owned by ViacomCBS Streaming, a division of ViacomCBS.
