Popular thriller cancelled after just one series – but there’s a twist | The Sun

ANOTHER popular thriller has just been been axed after one series – but there's a twist.

US television network Showtime has reportedly decided to cancel Dexter: New Blood.

The crime drama launched last year to much fanfare as a new chapter of the show began.

But media website TVLine claim Showtime have ditched plans for a second series.

However, it might not be the very end of the TV character as the network are planning a prequel.

The same website reports that show bosses are exploring the idea of telling the story of a young Dexter Morgan.

Actor Michael C. Hall had reprised his role for last year's spin off series.

Meanwhile, Dexter isn't the only show that's met its fate as three more big budget series have been cancelled.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed Showtime has cancelled two scripted dramas, while a third which has already completed filming is being shopped to other outlets.

Fans of American Gigolo and Let the Right One In will be gutted to learn both shows – which debuted last year – will not be returning after Showtime's merger with Paramount+.
