Robert: “Dexter” returning to TV
Showtime announced Wednesday it plans to bring back Dexter for a limited 10-episode series, with Michael C. Hall reprising the titular role.
“‘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,” said Showtime Co-President of Entertainment Gary Levine. “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!”
Sources say this new run will pick up where the original run left off.
The series will begin production in early 2021, with a fall 2021 premiere date.
Dexter originally aired from 2006-2013.
