‘Dexter: New Blood’ makes history for Showtime

Dexter: New Blood, produced by SHOWTIME, starring Michael C. Hall became the most-watched series in network history. It is streaming in India, exclusively on Voot Select.

‘Dexter: New Blood’ wrapped up a record-shattering season for Showtime. For its 10-episode run, it is averaging over 8 million weekly viewers across all platforms, becoming the most-watched series in Showtime history. The series finale aired on Sunday, January 9, with a total of 3 million viewers.

This was the biggest Showtime finale in more than eight years, surpassing the season-three finale of ‘Homeland’ in 2013. The finale, written by series showrunner Clyde Phillips, also set a new Showtime record with 2 million viewers from streaming and on demand platforms on Sunday.

“We’re thrilled by the overwhelming response from the millions of fans of Dexter: New Blood these past 10 weeks,” said Gary Levine, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc. “Whether they loved the finale or couldn’t bear to see it end, we so appreciate their passion. Our deepest thanks to Michael, Clyde, Scott and Marcos for delivering a profoundly powerful conclusion to our beloved and extraordinary series.”

Set 10 years after Dexter went missing in the eye of Hurricane Laura, Dexter: New Blood found him living under an assumed name in the fictional small town of Iron Lake, New York. Dexter may have been embracing his new life, but in the wake of unexpected events in this close-knit community, his Dark Passenger inevitably beckons.
