Showtime's Dexter is proof that a show can be phenomenal 90% of the way through, but a disappointing finale can impact its legacy. It happened to Game of Thrones, it happened to How I Met Your Mother, and it definitely happened to Showtime's acclaimed serial killer drama. Many Dexter fans were disappointed with how the series ended, and Michael C. Hall wants to fix that.
The actor recently spoke about Dexter's upcoming revival, a limited TV series that has long been discussed. Despite ideas floating around ever since the finale in 2013, the idea for a comeback was only greenlit in late 2020. Star Michael C. Hall talked with The Daily Beast about why the trigger was finally pulled on this long-awaited revival, and why it's happening in general.
One reason for the Dexter revival finally happening is the quality of the story that Michael C. Hall and others think will be told, and another is the actor's curiosity in what Dexter Morgan is up to all these years later. Dexter ended with Dexter Morgan faking his own death and moving to Oregon. The series left many loose ends for the character, such as what became of his son Harrison and his lover Hannah in Argentina.
The Dexter finale was panned by audiences who were dissatisfied with Dexter Morgan just taking up a new identity elsewhere. Michael C. Hall shared his thoughts on the finale and what he thought of the negative criticism the show has received over the years.
With the upcoming limited TV series, the Dexter crew will have a chance to give its fans a more satisfying finale, or maybe even a great end to Dexter Morgan's story. It certainly seems like Michael C. Hall and others were in no rush to bring the character back without the right idea considering how long they've waited, but we'll only know for sure if it was worth the wait when it releases.
The Dexter limited TV series is in the works, so be sure to keep an eye out for updates on its development. Also, continue to stick with CinemaBlend for all the latest happening in television and movies.
