Who Are the New Characters in 'Dexter: New Blood'—And Who's Returning?

Dexter (played by Michael C. Hall) is out for New Blood, as the new spin-off comes to Showtime. This time, the serial killer has moved from the heat of Miami to Iron Lake, New York, a place that really puts the "cold" into "cold-blooded killer."

Hall is returning as Dexter, and he is not the only guy to return from the original show. Jennifer Carpenter is back as Debra Morgan, returning somehow from beyond the grave to act as the killer's conscience. John Lithgow confirmed to Newsweek he was returning, as is Dexter's son Harrison—though a new actor (Jack Alcott) is playing him.

Mostly, though, the show has an entirely new cast, none of whom truly know what Dexter is capable of—though as the trailer hints that people in the town start to go missing, they might find out soon.

Read on for our full guide to who's who out of the new characters in the show.
