Dexter: New Blood

It’s back! Dexter is returning to our screens in the form of a 10-episode limited series titled Dexter: New BloodIt’s set to premiere on Sunday, November 7 at 9 PM ET/PT. Starring Michael C. Hall, New Blood has a chance to right a wrong for fans, many of whom were more than a little displeased at the show’s finale. Not sure where you can stream it? Read on to find out all about Dexter: New Blood and how a VPN lets you bypass geo-blocking and watch it online from anywhere in the world.

We’re only recommending official sources for watching Dexter: New Blood. The reason for this is that unlicensed streams are far too problematic. For starters, many will be taken offline without warning, due to copyright infringement. Even if your stream stays online, it’s likely it will be low resolution with choppy playback. The good news is that you won’t have to contend with these issues when you stick with the official sources listed in this post.

Dexter: New Blood will only be streaming on region-locked platforms. This means that if you’re traveling abroad and want to continue watching on your home streaming service, you’ll need to connect to a VPN.

How to watch Dexter: New Blood online with a VPN

A VPN is a service that encrypts the internet traffic traveling between your browsing or streaming device and the Internet. Connecting to a server changes your IP address and allows you to unblock geo-restricted content such as Dexter: New Blood.

Here’s how to live stream Dexter: New Blood online from anywhere:

  1. The first step is to sign up with a VPN. We recommend NordVPN. However, Surfshark and ExpressVPN are two high-quality alternatives for streaming.
  2. You should now be able to download and install the VPN app that’s compatible with your streaming device. This shouldn’t take more than a minute or two.
  3. Open the VPN app (and log in if necessary) before connecting to a server in the US. You’ll then have a US IP address for unblocking Showtime and watching New Blood.
  4. Go to Showtime (via web or app) and sign in or sign up as necessary. You should now find that all content is now available to stream without restriction.
  5. Doesn’t work? Clear your cookies before reloading your browser. Alternatively, try connecting to another US server in case your current IP address is blacklisted.

Dexter: New Blood will air live on Showtime. If you don’t want to miss out on the show’s premiere, it’s a good idea to test your VPN with Showtime ahead of time. You then have time to contact your VPN’s support and resolve any issues you happen to encounter.


NordVPN is offering a fully featured risk-free 30-day trial if you sign up at this page. You can use the VPN rated #1 for Showtime with no restrictions for a month—perfect for short trips abroad.

There are no hidden terms—just contact support within 30 days if you decide NordVPN isn't right for you and you'll get a full refund. Start your NordVPN trial here.

Dexter: New Blood will premiere exclusively on Showtime on Sunday, November 7. If you have a cable TV subscription, you may already have access to Showtime, in which case you need only sign in using your cable TV login details. Don’t have cable TV? No worries. There are multiple cable-free ways to get Showtime.

A Showtime subscription costs $10.99 (GBP £8.05) a month while there’s even a 30-day free trial. It’s also possible to add Showtime for the same price via Amazon Prime Video Channels as well as Hulu. Select TV streaming services also offer Showtime as an add-on. These include FuboTVSling TV, and YouTube TV.

Showtime is only available in the US and is geo-blocked elsewhere as a result. You therefore need to connect to a VPN server in the US and get a US IP address to watch Dexter: New Blood on Showtime from abroad. NordVPN works with Showtime and even includes a 30-day money-back guarantee, allowing you to try it out risk-free.

Where else can I watch Dexter: New Blood online?

Showtime isn’t the only place you can watch Dexter: New Blood online. Here are some of the streaming platforms in other countries that will be showing the Dexter revival:



In Canada, you’ll be able to find Dexter: New Blood on Crave where it will also premiere on Sunday, November 7. A mobile-only plan costs $8.05 (CAD$9.99) a month while the higher tier (Crave Plus) is priced at $16.02 (CAD $19.99)/month. However, it may be that you already have Crave included as part of your TV subscription. If this is the case, all you need to do is sign in and you’ll have full access.

While Crave is only available in Canada, you can access it while traveling abroad with the help of a VPN. This requires getting a Canadian IP address, upon which content should be unblocked in your location.
