Showtime’s Dexter revival is well underway, with Michael C. Hall set to reprise the role of the eponymous serial killer after almost 10 years.


The actor has hinted at the possibility of a return in the past, counting himself amongst those who weren’t satisfied with Dexter’s controversial ending.

The new series was finally confirmed in 2020, with news of new additions to the cast and plot details trickling in since.

In a recent interview, Hall opened up about stepping back into the shoes of the forensic analyst turned serial killer turned lumberjack and the possibility of expanding the revival into more seasons –

“I don’t really know what to expect, as I’ve never returned to a job after so much time. Having Dexter in a completely different context, we’ll see how that feels,”

“It’s been interesting to figure out how to do that and I thought it was time to find out what the hell happened to him.”

When he was asked whether the upcoming 10-episode series would definitely be the show’s last, he added –

“I’m reluctant to say ‘definitely’, you know? Let’s see. What’s plain now is that there’s 10 new episodes.”

“It’s not a yes, but it’s not a definite no, either. It all comes down to the quality of the story and being presented with a story I felt was worth telling.”

Speaking about the revival, Hall told The Hollywood Reporter at the time of the announcement –

“We basically do get to start from scratch,”

“We want this to not be Dexter Season 9. Ten years, or however many years, have passed by the time this will air, and the show will reflect that time passage. So far as the ending of the show, this will have no resemblance to how the original finale was. It’s a great opportunity to write a second finale.”

The revival isn’t tampering with any established canon and any characters that were killed during the show’s original run will remain dead.

The revival will instead pick up years after the original finale and find Dexter living in the fictional secluded town of Iron Lake in Upstate New York. Joining Hall will be Clancy Brown as Kurt Caldwell, a figure of importance in Iron Lake. Jamie Chung, Julia Jones, and Alano Miller also star.


Hall’s latest comments should be welcomed news for Dexter fans who felt burned after the show’s disappointing finale.
