Yesterday, the network revealed that it’s reviving Dexter as a ten-episode limited series. The new episodes will pick up right where the show left off, with Dexter Morgan going into exile as a lumberjack in an attempt to suppress his…needs.
Not only will the upcoming season feature the return of Michael C. Hall, but it will also be helmed by the original showrunner, Clyde Phillips (Nurse Jackie).
The news might shock some fans, since Dexter previously ran for eight seasons before ending in 2013. According to Gary Levine (Showtime’s president of entertainment), the reunion between Hall and Phillips was a longtime coming.
