Dexter: New Blood

Trivia: One of the main reasons for this series being made was because fans generally had a very negative reception to how the original series ended. While this series as a whole was liked by fans compared to the later seasons of the original series and despite the efforts of the creators to give fans a more satisfying ending, the finale seemed to upset fans more than that of its predecessor. As of this writing, it even has a lower IMDB rating.


Trivia: The writers wanted to kill off Dexter at the end of the original series. However, Showtime would not allow it.


Cold Snap - S1-E1

Trivia: The voice of the semi truck driver that drops off Harrison is provided by Erik King, who portrayed Sgt. Doakes in the original series.


Sins of the Father - S1-E10

Trivia: When Batista is pulling up the picture of Dexter and Angela on his computer, if you look closely, you can see some of the emails in his inbox are from Detective Quinn and Vince Masuka, two supporting characters from the original series.


Trivia: Kurt Caldwell, a.k.a. the Runaway Killer, was loosely based on real-life serial killer Robert Hansen.


Trivia: A few episodes of the "Merry Fucking Kill" podcast featured throughout the series can actually be listened to online.


Show generally

Continuity mistake: It is stated multiple times that forensics reports showed that the Bay Harbor Butcher used ketamine to incapacitate his victims. However, it wasn't ketamine that Dexter used in the original series, but rather M99.

Question: Would it actually be possible for someone as young as Harrison was to remember seeing his mother being murdered? I think he was around a year old at the time.

Answer: Around 1 year old is very unlikely. However, there are numerous reports and articles online of kids as young as 4 telling people "daddy hurt mummy" or vice versa when witnessing a murder.
