Dexter meets a copy-cat killer
Showtime unveiled a preview for the second season of its animated webisode series Dexter Early Cuts: Dark Echo, to a standing room only crowd at San Diego Comic-Con.

Hall, gives Dexter fans an early look at the life of America’s favorite serial killer with storylines that predate the show. Dark Echo will be available in six chapters this October.
Get a sneak peek below.
Dexter Early Cuts: Dark Echo will be comprised of one long-form story with a script by Dexter co-Executive Producer Tim Schlattmann.
Here, Dexter Morgan is challenged by a copy-cat killer who does not follow any sort of code. The story opens immediately after his father Harry’s death, with Dexter in his early twenties and his sister Debra is still in high school. Dexter is enrolled in medical school where he’s studying anatomy to improve his “craft.” During a routine kill, Dexter realizes that another student has been spying on him and knows that he is a serial killer. He confronts the student after he begins to commit murders in Dexter’s style and the two clash over the ethics of their situations. Dexter’s faceoff with his ‘Dark Echo’ represents the first time his code is tested since his father’s death, and the incident helps reinforce the importance of Harry Morgan’s code.
