Hope has been the only thing fans of Showtime's Dexter have had to hold on to since the series ended in 2013.
After eight seasons, when all is said and done, Dexter Morgan doesn't die, and he isn't caught for the vigilante murders he's committed. The serial killer who only kills other killers instead leaves everything behind and exiles himself from the world in what made for one of the most frustrating TV finales of all time.
"Some people think Dexter might be capable of living happily ever after, and some think 'No, he needs to be punished.' But yet, we don't really do either of those."
The ending wasn't as conclusive as Dexter's demise would've been, but it did provide a golden shimmer of hope that Dexter's story might not be over. Now, some huge news has broken that takes that sliver of hope a step or several steps further.
"Don't get your hopes up" would be an easy response to any news that claims Michael C. Hall's serial killer next door might be appearing on the screen once again. We've seen Dexter-related hopes squashed before, and nobody wants to see this fandom hurt again.
We were promised a prequel, and we got an animated web series in 2009. We were slammed with rumors of spin-offs that never happened. After a series of interviews with the Dexter actor talking about how he wouldn't mind reprising the role for a season 9, fans latched onto the words as a real possibility. Then, Showtime announced in 2019 that no active talks about a ninth season were taking place. Fans' hopes were crushed for a while, anyway.
Everything changed on October 14, 2020, when Showtime announced that all of our Dexter dreams are finally going to come true.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Showtime is bringing Dexter back for a limited series. The series isn't set to be an ongoing thing as of right now. It'll run for a total of ten episodes and bring Hall back as the world's favorite fictional serial killer. Even better, the production is scheduled to begin next year, so it's not only talk. By every indication, this is really happening.
The story is set to take place after the series finale, with Dexter living a solitary existence as a lumberjack-type in a new life he's crafted for himself after faking his death at the end of season 8. Despite Dexter's early retirement from his career of killing, there's sure to be a lot of murderous happenings since it's a huge part of the character's identity. Keep watching the video to see that Dexter fans just got huge news about the show's return.
