Michael C. Hall Is Open To A ‘Dexter’ Reboot
When the serial killer show Dexter came to a close, there were mixed reactions on whether it was the ending we all wanted and deserved.
It's been nearly FIVE years since Showtime called time on the epic series and some fans have been begging for the show or at least some of the characters to return in some way, shape or form.
If that happens, Michael C Hall may be up for reprising his role - but only if the show has a killer idea. How ironic.
The actor who plays Dexter Morgan told Variety: "When Dexter ended, I wanted to mix it up and felt like the cumulative effect of the things I have done since has served as a sort of 'Dexorcism.' [But] it's a possibility given how the show ended that we could revisit Dexter."
He added: "I have just yet to, for my part, imagine or hear someone else's idea that makes it feel worth doing. But never say never."
Hall played the awkward blood spatter expert, who not only solved murders but also committed them too - lots of them. While it captivated audiences for eight seasons, the final scenes left audiences feeling a little deflated.
Deb's health quickly declined and after everything she's been through, she succumbed to a bullet wound. Then, there's the very final scene, the one that had everyone staring at the TV with one eyebrow raised. Or was that just me?

We were left with so many questions: What's happening with Hannah and Harrison? Does Dexter stay on his own? What's with the Wolverine beard? Is Deb even dead? Or does she some how resurrect?
Maybe it's time to answer said questions.
Only a few months ago Digital Spy reported that Hall wasn't yet a massive fan of reviving the show, saying: "I don't think it's quite time. But it's a conversation that continues at its own pace."
Fans are certainly keen to see TV's favourite serial killer again, as a fake poster teasing a ninth season doing the rounds proved very recently.
Showtime later confirmed that there was 'no truth' to the rumours of a new season but perhaps the network will be open to a revival given the fan interest.
The actor also admitted that his career may be forever intertwined with Dexter, saying: "I realise Dexter will be in the first paragraph of my obituary if one is written, maybe the first sentence, but that's fine." Is this guy always in character or something?
It would only be fair to come back and clear stuff up. Please?
