Michael C. Hall has been waxing lyrical over the finale of Dexter, saying he understands fans’ frustrations with how the show ended.


The Showtime drama, in which the actor played the titular vigilante serial killer, came to a close in 2013 after eight seasons on the air.

However, Dexter is now set to return for a 10-episode limited series.

Speaking in an interview on Times Radio, Hall said:

“Filming the new series has] been gratifying,”

“I think the show ended in a way that was pretty mystifying at best if not infuriating for people, but that at least set the stage for us to return and answer more definitively what the hell happened to this guy.”

He added that, while he supported the “choice” that his character made:

“as far as the execution goes, we were all running on vapour at that point, so I get it”.

The show ended with Dexter burying his sister Debra (played by Jennifer Carpenter) at sea after she was left in a coma after being shot.

He then sailed into a hurricane and was later presumed dead after his boat was found in pieces.

However, it was revealed that Dexter faked his death and has been keeping a low profile working at a lumber company in Oregon.

Hall said:

“We pick him up as if as much time has passed for him as has passed for the rest of us.”

Speaking about the revival, Hall said:

“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.”

DexterThe new series of Dexter is in its final weeks of filming and will air in the US on November 7th.
