Fans of Dexter have been waiting a long time for this reboot, and now that it’s finally here, many are wondering if there’s a way to watch Dexter: New Blood online for free. Luckily, we’ve found some tricks for fans to watch Dexter: New Blood online for free below.

For those who haven’t yet had a chance to get acquainted with the series, here’s what to know. Dexter: New Blood is a reboot of Showtime’s original series Dexter, which was based on Jeff Lindsay’s Darkly Dreaming Dexter books. The show, which ran for eight seasons from 2006 to 2013, follows antihero Dexter Morgan, a forensic bloodstain pattern analyst who works for the Miami Metro Police Department and lives a double life as a serial killer who targets other murderers. Dexter’s modus operandi is inspired by a code of ethics taught to him as a child by his adoptive father, Harry, who recognized his son’s sociopathic traits early on. These rules—referred to simply as “The Code” or “The Code of Harry”—first require that Dexter can prove that his prospective victims are guilty of murder before killing them, and secondly, that he must not allow himself to get caught.

Dexter: New Blood, which premiered on Showtime in November 2021, is set 10 years after the original Dexter ends. The show reunites viewers with Dexter as he lives under the new identity of Jim Lindsay, a local shopkeeper in Iron Lake, New York. The miniseries features Dexter’s relationship with his now grown-up son, Harrison, and his new love interest, Angela Bishop, Iron Lake’s chief of police, among others. In this new town, Dexter must fight to suppress his own urge to kill and silence the “Dark Passenger” in his mind.
