Is Showtime’s new Dexter season the revival nobody asked for?

Dexter, one of television’s most famous serial killers, is on his way back.

Showtime has announced that it will kick off a limited series of 10 episodes.

Star Michael C Hall will once again play blood spatter specialist Dexter Morgan, who has worked with the Miami Police Department and Moonlights as a vigilante killer throughout the series.

Gary Levine, president of entertainment for Showtime, said in a statement that the network “would only revisit this unique character if we could find a creative mindset truly worthy of the brilliant original series.”

“Well, I’m happy to report this Clyde Phillips [the executive producer] and Michael C Hall found it, “he said.


What about * this * finale?

[Warning: Spoilers ahead]

Dexter ran eight seasons through 2013 and received several awards, including Golden Globe and Emmy wins for Michael C Hall.

But the series finale was rife with both critics and fans at the time. The Sydney Morning Herald wrote it was “full of holes” and “angry viewers,” Vulture called it a “terrible end,” and Rolling Stone listed it as one of the “worst series finals” alongside Lost, How I Met Your Mother. Roseanne and friends.

In the finale, Dexter pulls the plug on his sister Debra’s life support machine, throws her body at sea, and then sails into a hurricane that appears to be dead. But the show ended with a quick look at Dexter, who worked as a lumberjack and lived alone.

Are there any indications of what will happen in the new episodes?

Showtime hasn’t given us any clues as to the plot of the revival, nor whether any of the show’s other main characters will be returning. In 2013, however, showrunner Scott Buck said that Entertainment Weekly viewers probably wouldn’t see the current cast in any form.

Buck defended the final, saying it was the most justified ending.

“His punishment is banishment. He’s going into exile, ”he said.

Buck also defended the decision that Dexter’s fellow Miami Metro police didn’t discover his secret.

“We played with this idea, but it felt wrong. The story was ultimately about Dexter’s personal journey, ”he said.

Showtime hopes to start production during the revival season later this year with a tentative air date starting September 2021.

Do viewers want more Dexter?

Rolling Stones chief television critic Alan Sepinwall tweeted that this was “the revival nobody asked for.”


We asked the question to subscribers of the ABC TV theme on Messenger and asked if fans would watch another season.

The answer was a resounding yes, and respondents were overwhelmingly excited that the Dexter story could continue.

Celia A said:

Would I be hot ?! Yes Ma’am !!!! The joke of a 10 part revival made sense to my day !!! Boom! The end of season eight asked for a revival at some point. Sign up, take my money and tell me which new subscription to go for !?

Peta T said:

In any case! Dexter was so different from when it started. He was an antihero that we could admire and loathe, often in the same episode. The writing was nifty and I would like to see a limited series to add to its story. Bring it on!

Josef G said:

Yes, please. Michael C Hall is so talented and had cancer treatment while he was a Dexter. I have a feeling he has an unfinished business and would love to see what Dexter has been up to all along.

Jade B said:

This new series has the potential to correct anything that was wrong with the finale. My god it was bad. Yes! You’re welcome! Fix it!

Keith M said:

In retrospect, like all long series of a similar kind (Sigh: Wentworth!), The authors seemed to be further and further removed from the possibilities of reality. But at the end of the day it was a tense, enticing and exciting show and I’m looking forward to it coming back.

Tamzyn B had an idea of ​​where the resuscitation should go:

Yes Yes Yes. Dexter went the way of the good and the bad season … So let’s hope we are back in the good last season !!! [It would] Be great knowing where it is with adult children and life.

Steph T was drawn from the sequel to Breaking Bad:

I am open to her to try and give Dexter a better ending. Look, I’ll check it out anyway, but after Breaking Bad El Camino my expectations are low.

Lachlan G said he liked the Dexter finals and wasn’t sure about the revival:

The ending was really very fitting given the context of the show. Like so many of those antihero-centric “premium” shows of the time, some of the viewers identified with Dexter and the cruel violence he had constantly subjected his family and friends to. While it might have been amusing for Dexter’s old methods of survival, it would have been totally inappropriate for him to get a happy ending. Showing more could jeopardize the importance of this choice.

Mat J was not convinced:

I’ve just started re-watching all of Stan’s episodes, and god it’s so awful! Terrible acting, terrible conspiracy, slightly sexist. I loved this show when I was younger, now I’ve completely ruined my experience. I think I’ll end all seasons just out of curiosity. But Dexter is dead to me

Rohan H was more forgiving:

The finale was really terrible, but the previous episodes were mostly breathtaking! I want to give them a chance at salvation.
