Back this year is Dexter, with killer new episodes every Sunday. Dexter: New Blood is set 10 years after Dexter went missing in the eye of Hurricane Laura; the series finds him living under an assumed name in the small town of Iron Lake, New York. Dexter may be embracing his new life, but in the wake of unexpected events in this close-knit community, his Dark Passenger beckons.

New this year is the series Yellowjackets, which premiered Nov. 14. The series follows the players of a talented high school girls’ soccer team that descends into savage clans after their plane crashes in the remote northern wilderness. Twenty-five years later, they discover that what began in the wild is far from over.

In its second season, Work in Progress finds Abby in the wake of a breakup and begrudgingly accepting that she’s too busy to kill herself. In fact, she’s just starting to get her head above water when a global pandemic forces Abby into uncharted territory.
