Is Dexter on Netflix? Here’s how to watch it in the UK and the US. The announcement of its return is compelling new audiences to watch the series.
Screen entertainment has long held a fascination with serial killers and there have been many interesting works preoccupied with them, whether we’re talking Fritz Lang’s 1931 film M or Mary Harron’s 2000 adaptation of American Psycho.
Through films and TV shows, we’re able to explore the unimaginable and the terrifying.
However, many titles have also taken a rather different approach to portraying killers, whether injecting portraits of the wicked with humour or more.
Reflecting back, the new century has ushered in a wealth of great TV and many shows have taken a refreshing approach to familiar genres.
Many would argue that one of the very best to take a stab at the serial killer formula was Dexter.
Developed by James Manos Jr. and based on Jeff Lindsay’s 2004 novel Darkly Dreaming Dexter, the series premiered in 2006 and aired for 8 seasons until its conclusion in 2013.
However, news of its return has audiences wishing to watch it either again or for the first time…
