Dexter: Michael C. Hall Returning For New Series
Seven years after its controversial finale, it has been announced that beloved Showtime series Dexter will be returning for a new 10-episode revival.
Actor Michael C. Hall – who won a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award for his portrayal of the serial killer – will be returning to our screens as Dexter Morgan in the autumn of 2021, with production for the show beginning early next year.
“Dexter is such a special series, both for its millions of fans and for Showtime, as this breakthrough show helped put our network on the map many years ago,” says Showtime Entertainment president Gary Levine. “We would only revisit this unique character if we could find a creative take that was truly worthy of the brilliant, original series. Well, I am happy to report that Clyde Phillips and Michael C. Hall have found it, and we can’t wait to shoot it and show it to the world.”
Of course, the actor never actually ruled out future seasons of Dexter after its eight-series run. Speaking to The Daily Beast, he said, “Every time I’m asked about [another season of Dexter] I say, ‘Never say never.’ The next thing I know there’s an announcement on the internet saying, ‘He’s going to do it again.’ ”
He added of the season eight finale: “The way that show ended gave no sense of closure for people and a lot of questions unanswered. He seems to be in this self-imposed exile, he certainly didn’t ride off into the sunset. His sister died. It left a gnarly knot in some viewers’ stomachs. I stand by how that eighth season ended.
“For him to simulate his own death and extricate himself from the context of his life made sense to me. As far as any more of that happening, it’s possible.”
