America’s favorite serial killer just announced his return to Showtime and already fans cannot contain their excitement. In the series finale back in 2013, Dexter Morgan, a blood-splatter analyst by day and killer by night, faked his death and presumed the role of a lumberjack. Of course, fans thought that would be the end of Dexter Morgan after that faithful episode, but Showtime has decided to revisit the character and roll out ten new episodes for a pseudo ninth season.
With the show’s announcement came the news that Michael C. Hall will also be reprising his role as Dexter Morgan in the show’s revival. This news is not a surprise to loyal fans, for no other man could play the cunning serial killer.
Sadly, viewers will be sitting on the edge of their seats for a while before episode one airs. Showtime is predicted to launch season nine in fall 2021, since production for the show will begin sometime this winter despite COVID-19.
Still, the biggest question that looms over the series reboot is whether or not the series will leave where it left off. Are loyal fans going to get to see what became of Dexter Morgan’s life after he left Miami and his sister’s body at the bottom of the sea? Or is there going to be a rewrite of the end of the last season? Is Dexter the lumberjack going to be written out of Showtime history for good?
In the end, even though many were disappointed with the series finale seven years ago and there are still a ton of unanswered questions surrounding the series’ revival, loyal fans should prepare themselves for a season like no other. A new side of Dexter is most certainly going to get exposed – a side fans had no idea lurked beneath the surface.
