LONG TIME NO SPREE.
When Dexter ended its seven-year run, critics and audiences were far from happy, so this limited series was a second chance to get things right. Reconnecting with the last scene of the original show, we’re reintroduced to the lead character, a retired serial killer who’s swapped sunny Miami for a wintry upstate New York town; the arrival of potential new enemies/victims and, surprisingly, his troubled teenage son (Jack Alcott) poses great challenges for Dexter. The new Dark Passenger may be an illogical touch, but this is a well-staged comeback, with thrills and a satisfying finale.
