Dexter fans were used to seeing their favorite characters die on Showtime. It’s not surprising that a TV series about a serial killer prosecuted by another serial killer will have a high number of corpses.
However, one of these killings was particularly shocking to observers. Many were shocked when Rita passed away. The surprise story didn’t only shock the fans. Julie Benz played Rita and didn’t know what was coming until the last minute.
Dexter was an American television series that featured Dexter Morgan as a blood-spatter specialist for the Miami Police Department. But he had a terrible secret. Dexter worked as a criminal-catcher, but he also was a serial murderer.
Dexter’s unique ability to create meaningful relationships with others was one of his most striking qualities. Rita Bennett was one of the most important of his connections.
The official release date of the ten-episode Dexter Season 9 has not yet been announced. Production started in February and will end in July. If these dates hold, Dexter Season 9 is expected to hit its release window in fall 2021.
