Jack Alcott, who played Dexter’s estranged son Harrison in Dexter: New Blood, says he would love to do a spinoff series focused on his character.
Dexter: New Blood star Jack Alcott says he would love to return to the role of Harrison in a potential spinoff. New Blood, which aired on Showtime from November 7, 2021 through January 9, 2022, was a continuation of their hit serial killer series Dexter, which followed the titular sociopath who hunts down and murders bad people, played by Michael C. Hall, who was nominated for five Emmys for the role. After eight seasons, the show went off the air in 2013 with a controversial finale that left fans reeling.
The story continued 10 years later in Dexter: New Blood, which saw Dexter attempting to blend into normal life in a small, secluded town. However, just as keeping his identity a secret and preventing himself from killing are becoming more and more difficult, his estranged son Harrison (Alcott) tracks him down. As the season progressed, Dexter began to worry that Harrison inherited his tendencies, leading to another controversial finale in which he made Harrison shoot him after realizing he could never be the father figure he truly needs.
During an interview with Gold Derby, Alcott was asked if he’d ever want to return to the role, potentially in a spinoff focusing on Harrison. He responded with an enthusiastic “yeah,” gushing about the fact that it was eye-opening to be able to spend six months developing and deepening a character. He said he loves Harrison because he’s “such an interesting character” combining elements that really resonate with Alcott with traits that are nothing like him whatsoever.
