The prequel also introduces Reno Wilson as Harry’s trusted partner and confidant Bobby Watt. Fans may recognize Wilson from his notable roles in Mike & Molly.

A Look Ahead

The prequel is set in 1991 Miami, taking viewers 15 years back before the events of the original series. Patrick Gibson will portray Dexter Morgan before he became a prolific serial killer—a role previously held by Michael C. Hall. The narrative focuses on how Dexter’s father Harry (now played by Christian Slater) helps him manage his dark urges.

The excitement builds as production begins this Wednesday in Miami. Clyde Phillips returns as showrunner and executive producer to helm this much-anticipated revival.
