While talking to Deadline, the showrunner of season 1 of ‘Dexter: New Blood’ Clyde Phillips talked about the possibility of season 2. In the interview, he was positive about bringing season 2, but it all depends on Showtime. He said, “As I mentioned, this show is a huge asset. When people start bingeing this after the finale, I’m confident the numbers will continue to go up. It’s up to Showtime to make the call to me if they want more”.

Phillips continued, “If they ask me if I’d like to make a continuation of this, I would say yes. I have a lot of things going on but I would drop everything for this and say yes in one second”.

He confirmed that it is over for Dexter. In the interview, he said, “I have three words for you: Dexter is dead. I wouldn’t do that to the audience. It would be dishonest. Here, there is no question that this is the finale of Dexter. Dexter is dead”.
