Dexter Morgan’s reign of terror will resume on Showtime this fall — eight years after the unique collection ended.
Showtime on Thursday confirmed that the Michael C. Corridor-fronted revival will premiere this fall.
Clyde Phillips is on the helm of the reboot, which takes place in a brand new location for the collection.
Dexter will probably be residing in Upstate New York for the ten-episode collection, and properly, he will discover himself in a troublesome spot.
The brand new promo exhibits Dexter’s signature cheeky grin as he will get able to carve up his subsequent sufferer.
However, who may that individual be?
We’ve got no clue, however all we will do is speculate.
Clancy Brown (Carnivale and Billions) is on board as major antagonist Kurt Caldwell, the unofficial mayor of Iron Lake.
The forged additionally consists of Julia Jones (as Iron Lake’s first Native American Chief of Police), Jane the Virgin alum Alano Miller (as an Iron Lake PD sergeant), and Lovecraft Nation‘s Jamie Chung (as a well-known true-crime podcaster from Los Angeles who finds herself caught up in one thing she’s in all probability going to wish to neglect).
Whereas the unique collection finale was hardly satisfying, Philips was adamant about not altering any of the occasions.
“We’re not undoing something,” he maintained. “We’re not going to betray the viewers and say, ‘Whoops, that was all a dream.’ What occurred within the first eight years occurred within the first eight years.”
That is definitely a giant swing, however the viewers would in all probability not be as enthused in regards to the collection returning if it modified the previous.
Probably the most controversial second in collection historical past was the dying of Deb (Jennifer Carpenter), however eagle-eyed followers have discovered that she could possibly be again on the set of the collection.
If the actress is again, it is in all probability flashbacks, or probably as somebody who’s haunting Dexter. If he spent years alone, he may have discovered himself chatting with his previous victims.
Gary Levine and Jana Winograde, Presidents of Leisure for Showtime Networks, Inc., made the announcement that the collection was returning months in the past.
“Dexter is such a particular collection, each for its hundreds of thousands 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 inventive take that was really worthy of the sensible, unique collection.
“Effectively, I’m completely satisfied to report that Clyde Phillips and Michael C. Corridor have discovered it, and we will’t wait to shoot it and present it to the world!”
