Showtime Is Bringing Back Dexter And Michael C. Hall Will Return

Showtime Is Bringing Back Dexter And Michael C. Hall Will Return

Showtime is bringing back its successful crime drama Dexter after an eight-year break and star Michael C. Hall is on board.

The 10-part limited series is expected to go into production next year.

Producer Clyde Phillips is also coming back for the new series and no details have been announced about what Dexter will be up to.

Showtime's Co-president of Entertainment Gary Levine said the show, which originally ran from 2006 to 2013, would never be revisited unless there was a brilliant idea to take it forward.

"We would only revisit this unique character if we could find a creative take that was truly worthy of the brilliant, original series," he said in a statement.

"Well, I am happy to report that Clyde Phillips and Michael C Hall have found it.".

The last we saw of Hall's character - a brilliant forensic expert by day, brutal serial killer by night - was in season eight where he faked his own death and was living under a new name in Oregon.

He wrecked his beloved boat and had escaped hospital with his sister's body, who had been shot and placed into a coma. Dexter had also told his son and wife to move to Argentina. It was wild.

Hall has never ruled out returning to the role and previously said it would be interesting to explore how he managed to evade capture.

Michael C. Hall Is Returning For A New Series Of Dexter

published ata month ago

"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 8th season ended."

While the ending of the show left many viewers wanting more, Hall believes it was a fitting wrap-up of the story.

He added: "If he had kept on killing people he'd have been fine, but he gets married, he opens his imagination and heart.

"He has a real connection to people, and all those people are compromised or destroyed in some way. For it to be all tidied up after that would have not been honest.

"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."
