SHOWTIME(R) REVIVES ORIGINAL DEXTER(R) PODCAST WITH LAUNCH OF DEXTER(R): NEW BLOOD WRAP-UP WITH SCOTT REYNOLDS, AHEAD OF TV SERIES PREMIERE

First Slice of Killer New Podcast Season Drops October 1

NEW YORK – September 23, 2021 – SHOWTIME breathes new life into the official DEXTER companion podcast with the premiere of DEXTER: NEW BLOOD WRAP-UP WITH SCOTT REYNOLDS, hosted by Reynolds, executive producer and writer for the much-anticipated special event series DEXTER(R): NEW BLOOD.

In conjunction with the 15th anniversary of the DEXTER premiere, the podcast – which will be available everywhere – will launch Friday, October 1, and will continue its spree with new episodes every Tuesday for 16 weeks. To listen to the trailer and subscribe to the podcast, please click on LINK.

Ahead of the world television premiere of DEXTER: NEW BLOOD (Sunday, November 7, at 9 p.m. ET/PT), Reynolds will give fans their fix by fleshing out the episodes and dissecting the characters and plot twists with razor-sharp precision. The podcast will provide exclusive behind-the-scenes access and feature special guest stars from the cast and the brilliant minds who bring the show to life, including Michael C. Hall (“Dexter Morgan”), Jennifer Carpenter (“Deb Morgan”), John Lithgow (“Arthur Mitchell”), showrunner and executive producer Clyde Phillips, the writers and many more on the hit list.

“Resurrecting America’s favorite serial killer puts viewers in the passenger seat as I, along with my special guests, will lay it all out on the kill table,” says Reynolds. “This podcast is the perfect companion piece to cut deep into the dark drama that’s DEXTER. Was he a good guy doing bad things or a bad guy doing good things? Or was he just a misunderstood man with a large collection of knives and way too much plastic wrap?”

—–Celebrate 50 years with this new updated limited edition version with added bonus features! On September 12, 1970, at the height of the Saturday-Morning TV mania, Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp first aired on ABC, and television was never the same again. Making a mockery of everything from the Secret Agent craze to variety shows and music videos, the creators of Lancelot Link took the impossibly bold step and made a TV series CAST ONLY WITH ACTUAL CHIMPANZEES! The suave Lancelot Link and his partner, Mata Hairi, are top agents at the Agency to Prevent Evil (APE), a secret organization led by Commander Darwin that protects the world from wrongdoers. APE’s chief nemesis, the nefarious Baron Von Butcher, leads CHUMP, the Criminal Headquarters for the Underworld Master Plan, an evil league bent on world conquest. Assisting the diabolical Baron is a band of unforgettable bad apes including Creto, Wang Fu, the Duchess, Dragon Lady, Ali Assa Seen, and Dr. Strangemind. It’s been 50 years since that fateful day when Lancelot Link literally changed the face of television forever, and it’s as shockingly hilarious and mind-bendingly absurd today as it was when it first aired on Saturday morning TV. Standing alone in its class because nothing else quite like it exists, prepare yourself for the miraculous impossibility of Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp! 4-disc set.

The original eight-season run of DEXTER premiered in the fall of 2006 and starred Hall as Dexter Morgan, a complicated and conflicted blood-spatter expert for the Miami police department who moonlights as a serial killer.

Hall is a six-time Emmy nominee for Outstanding Lead Actor, the last five nominations coming in consecutive years for his work on DEXTER. He also received five consecutive Golden Globe nominations and six Screen Actors Guild noms for the role, winning both honors in 2010. In addition, Hall received an Emmy nomination for his performance on Six Feet Under. Hall has also appeared in such film and television projects as Christine and Safe, and on Broadway in productions including Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

Phillips earned Emmy and Golden Globe(R) nominations for Outstanding Drama Series in three consecutive years, as well as a Peabody Award and four nominations from both the Producers Guild of America and the Writers Guild of America, for his work as executive producer and showrunner of DEXTER. In addition, Phillips created the series Suddenly Susan, Get Real and Parker Lewis Can’t Lose, and his producing and writing credits include the series NURSE JACKIE, Feed the Beast and Boomtown among many others. In addition, he is the author of four national bestselling mystery novels. Phillips has an overall deal with SHOWTIME and CBS Television Studios through which he is developing projects for both entities that can air on platforms within or outside the ViacomCBS family.
