Dexter Season 9: What Will Happen Next?
The story has moved ten years in the future when Dexter returns. He had started a new life after staging his death during Hurricane Laura. Season 9 will find Dexter living as James Lindsay in Iron Lake, New York. Moreover, Dexter’s Dark passenger will be replaced in the final season. Debra will take Harry’s place as we are about to see an entirely different version of him.
With Harry gone, there will be no discipline or moral code in how Dexter perf orms his kills. Thus, Dexter is about to go rogue.
