Michael C. Hall Returning For ‘Dexter’ Revival Series At Showtime

Michael C. Hall Returning For ‘Dexter’ Revival Series At Showtime Showtime

Finally, it’s the news we’ve all been waiting for: Showtime is bringing Dexter back for a limited 10-episode series and yes, Michael C. Hall will be back to reprise his role! Lest we forget, it’s been 14 years since Dexter premiered on the network and seven years since it ended in a series finale that left much to be desired in the eyes of many fans. It’s good to see they’ll get another chance to set things right!

  1. Sadly, the reunion will be short and sweet. Don’t get too excited thinking that we’ve got another eight seasons of Dexter ahead of us. In fact, these 10 episodes will be it… at least that’s what they’re saying so far. However, 10 episodes give them ample amounts of time to do some great storytelling and right some wrongs from the original run, so I’m into it!
  2. Clyde Phillips, Dexter’s original EP, will be back too. He’ll be heading up Showtime’s revival, which is good news. After all, you want someone who knows the flow of the show, the characters, etc. Phillips does so the show is in good hands!
  3. Showtime is pretty stoked to bring the show back too. Showtime president Gary Levine said in a statement: “Dexter is such a special series, both for its millions of fans and for Showtime, as this breakthrough show helped put our network on the map many years ago. We would only revisit this unique character if we could find a creative take that was truly worthy of the brilliant, original series. Well, I am happy to report that Clyde Phillips and Michael C. Hall have found it, and we can’t wait to shoot it and show it to the world!” You and me both!
  4. Sadly, we still have a while to wait. You shouldn’t expect to see Dexter on-air anytime soon. The revival is due to premiere on Showtime in Fall 2021, so you’ll have to be patient a little longer!
