Dexter: New Blood looks to be a hit for Showtime, scoring strong ratings in its debut episode. The revival series, which premiered on November 7, has scored 2.2 million since its premiere per Deadline. That puts it on track to become the network’s most-watched series on over-the-top platforms according to Showtime.

The show drew a 0.2 rating in the 18 – 49 demographic and 678,000 viewers in its Live+Same Day ratings, though it’s important to note that as a premium cable network that doesn’t rely on ads, Showtime relies more on overall viewership than ad-supported (i.e. basic cable and broadcast) networks.

The 10-episode series stars Michael C. Hall reprising his role as the titular killer alongside Julia Jones, Alano Miller, Johnny Sequoyah, Jack Alcott, and Clancy Brown, with Jennifer Carpenter and John Lithgow reprising their roles as as Debra Morgan and the Trinity Killer in some capacity. Original series showrunner Clyde Phillips, who steered the show for its first four seasons, is back in that capacity for the revival.
