TV series Dexter to return after eight years
Dexter – The highly acclaimed crime drama, which went eight years ago, is all set to make a comeback for the previous season. Actor Michael C. Hall is set to reprise the role of Dexter Morgan in the new season of the series. According to TV Line, the new season is a limited series of 10 episodes. The last and final season of the series will give fans a new taste and a second finale. This did not end the original series, but rather, hopefully, would do the right things about Dexter’s disappointing final episode.

Showrunner Clyde Phillips told Hollywood Reporter’s TV’s Top 5 Podcast, “We basically have to start from scratch. We want it not to be Dexter season 9. Ten years, or many years, have passed from this time and the show will pass. As of the end of the show so far, it would bear no resemblance to how the original finale came to be. This is a great opportunity to write a second finale for our show and Showtime is very indulgent about that. “
Showtime Entertainment president Gary Levine told the Hollywood Reporter that bringing the series back was not an easy decision. “We’ll only showcase this unique character again if we can take a creative that was truly worthy of a fantastic, original series,” he said.
“Well, I’m happy to say that Clyde Phillips and Michael C. Hall have found it, and we can’t wait to shoot it and show it to the world.”
Back in 2013, the makers announced that season eight would be the final show. But the new episode will have to pick up where it left off – with Dexter going into a self-imposed exile. The show’s closing season sparked debate among fans, and even the returning Phillies told EE online during that time that if he didn’t leave the series already, he would suggest an alternate ending.
In response to the news, One Tree Hill actress Sophia Bush said, “I really just had a cold, and my hands are sweaty and oh my god is this real!?!” Fans around the world appear equally excited about Dexter’s return – with the chance to move on to some more potentially murderous action.
The original series, based on Jeff Lindsay’s novel Dark Dreaming Dexter, began in 2006. The series is now set for re-production in 2021 and is expected to screen again by the end of that year.
