Dexter Prequel Series 'Dexter: Origins' Begins Filming In Los Angeles This June (Rumor)

Are you ready, Dexter fans!?

Brace yourselves for more Dexter! According to a report from website TheCinemaholic, the prequel series 'Dexter: Origins' (working title) will start shooting in June 2024. Just like the original series which aired from 2006 to 2013, the upcoming prequel will be filmed in Los Angeles. No news at all regarding the all-new cast, or if Michael C. Hall will agree to reprise young Dexter, just by wearing a wig.

If this rumor about the beginning of production for Dexter: Origins is true, we should expect tons of Dexter news in the forthcoming days, weeks or months.

Dexter: Origins as well as Dexter: New Blood Season 2 starring Jack Alcott and a prequel series based on the early years of the notorious Trinity Killer were announced in early February of 2023, but the writers and actors strike that followed stopped the development of every Hollywood production, including these three shows. 

What we know from last year about Dexter: Origins is that Clyde Phillips, the showrunner of Dexter seasons one to four and Dexter: New Blood will be developing the new show(s). Writer Scott Reynolds will likely come back as well. 

According to Showtime's press release from February 6th, 2023, the prequel "will dramatize young Dexter Morgan at the outset of his transition into the avenging serial killer he would become. Set in the Miami that was a hotbed of real serial killers of his time, the show will begin as Dexter graduates college to join Miami Metro, where he meets younger versions of many of the characters we came to know in the original series. And, of course, the show will also focus on Dexter’s family, including a very-much-alive Harry and a very formidable, teenage Deb."

In the meantime, it seems that Showtime/Paramount+ ended its mostly spoiler-free promotion that was focusing on seasons one, two and four on Instagram, Facebook and TikTok. Since October they shared approximately 24 short clips from each of these seasons (they actually skipped season 3), and yesterday they revisited season 1 by sharing a short video of the notorious Doakes quote 'surprise motherf*cker'.

On the YouTube front, Showtime's brand new Dexter channel is doing great when it comes to new subscribers. Since we shared the news here on Dexter Daily on March 11, the channel gained 16K new subscribers.

Stay tuned for more updates!
