Showtime is bringing its bloody serial killer series Dexter back for a 10-episode revival—and Michael C. Hall will reprise the titular role.
Showrunner Clyde Phillips will also return. The series originally ran for eight seasons between 2006 and 2013, ending in a disappointing finale that saw Dexter Morgan going into self-imposed exile and living a solitary life as a lumberjack.
“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,” Gary Levine, Showtime Entertainment president, said in a statement. “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.”
The limited series revival is expected to premiere sometime in the autumn of 2021.
