In 2020, the surprising retains us on our toes.
Do not be shocked, however now we have excellent news for a change. Are you prepared for this??
Dexter is returning to Showtime!
I do know! That is unbelievable.
My first thought was that with nothing else on nowadays, Showtime was simply going to replay Dexter in its entirety in primetime.
However, no! That is a lot extra.
Michael C. Corridor will return to the function of Dexter Morgan in a ten-episode restricted collection with showrunner, Clyde Phillips, on the helm.
And this is not too far off, with manufacturing set to start in early 2021 and a tentative premiere date in fall of 2021.
When movies are getting pushed off to years as far-off as 2023, that is excellent news we are able to actually use and recognize.
Gary Levine and Jana Winograde, Presidents of Leisure for Showtime Networks, Inc., made the announcement right now.
“Dexter is such a particular collection, each for its tens of millions of followers and for Showtime, as this breakthrough present helped put our community on the map a few years in the past,” mentioned Levine.
“We might solely revisit this distinctive character if we may discover a artistic take that was actually worthy of the good, unique collection.
“Properly, I’m pleased to report that Clyde Phillips and Michael C. Corridor have discovered it, and we are able to’t wait to shoot it and present it to the world!”
Corridor was nominated six occasions within the Excellent Lead Actor Emmy’s class, with the final 5 occasions being consecutive nods for his work on Dexter.
Phillips earned a number of Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for Excellent Drama for his work as government producer and showrunner.
The expertise behind Dexter made us root for a cheerful ending for Dexter, one thing he seemingly acquired within the then collection finale, Dexter Season 8 Episode 12, which noticed the killer escape to the woods as a lumberjack.
No, it wasn’t one for the report books. Properly, possibly it was, however it wasn’t for the nice and cozy and fuzzy emotions followers (or its star) had for that weird finale.
So, it feels fairly good understanding that with all of the dying and destruction that rained down on Dexter Morgan, he is nonetheless the identical man we grew to know.
In spite of everything, the collection would not be returning if it was to point out how briskly Dex may take down a tree along with his trusty chainsaw.
Not many reveals get a second probability to do proper by the story or its followers, so we welcome this improvement with open arms.
What do you suppose, Dexter fanatics?
Are you able to get again in mattress with the killer?
If you happen to weren’t conscious of the present in its heyday, you may watch your complete collection on Showtime On Demand or Showtime Anytime.
