Showtime brings Dexter to life for a limited series with the return of Michael C. Hall


Dexter Morgan, the serial killer with a heart of gold, is back! Showtime announced today that it has ordered a new ten-part limited series of Dexter that will reunite with Michael C. Hall back in the role. Clyde Phillips, who served as showrunner and executive producer for the show’s first four seasons, will also be returning. Gary Levine, Co-President of Entertainment at Showtime, said the following in a statement:

Dexter is such a special series, both to its millions of fans and to Showtime, because this groundbreaking show helped put our network on the map many years ago. We would only come back to this unique character if we could find a creative take that truly befits the brilliant original series. Well I’m happy to report that Clyde Phillips and Michael C. Hall found it, and we can’t wait to shoot it and show it to the world.

Dexter spanned eight seasons on Showtime from 2006 to 2013, and although the series was once highly acclaimed, reception waned as it progressed, culminating in a series finale that some believe was one. of the worst in the history of television. Even though I think it’s a bit harsh, it’s easier to say the finale was deeply polarizing. Production on this new limited series is slated to start early next year with a tentative launch in fall 2021. In fact, I just saw Dexter with my fiancee earlier this week, and the first words from her mouth at the end of the season finale were, “They really need to bring this back into a miniseries so they can fix that ending.” »Wish granted.

here is your DIVULGACHER Warning! Dexter’s season finale found the titular serial killer shooting his comatose sister Debra (Jennifer Carpenter) and dropping her body into the ocean before driving his boat into a tropical storm and faking her death. He had also sent his son Harrison and love interest Hannah (Yvonne Strahovski) to Argentina, promising he would reunite with them later, but the show’s latest shots found Dexter working for a lumber company in Oregon and looking miserable with his new beard. While I didn’t like the later seasons of the show as much as some, I can admit that they paled compared to those early seasons, so it’s good to know that Clyde Phillips is back on board for (hopefully) the) bring the conclusion to Dexter. he deserves.
