Michael C. Hall hopes Dexter revival will make up for “unsatisfying” finale


Seven years after a controversial finale, Dexter is coming again with a brand new story and a brand new villain, however with Michael C. Hall again within the lead position.

There is nothing I can say about Dexter that hasn’t already been mentioned. The present about do-gooding serial killer Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) was terrific present for a number of seasons earlier than bottoming out within the collection finale, the place Dexter moved away and apparently turned a lumberjack, leaving his younger son with one other serial killer. We’ve heard all of it.

But now, Dexter is getting its probability at redemption, as Showtime has introduced that it’s reviving the present this yr. Since then, Michael C. Hall has been making the rounds and assuring followers that, this time, issues can be totally different.

Hall talked to The Daily Beast about what’s in retailer, and why now was the right time to revisit that…ending:

Yeah. It’s a dialog that’s been ongoing, and totally different prospects have emerged over time. I feel on this case, the story that’s being advised is value telling in a method that different proposals didn’t, and I feel sufficient time has handed the place it’s turn out to be intriguing in a method that it wasn’t earlier than. And let’s be actual: individuals discovered the best way that present left issues fairly unsatisfying, and there’s all the time been a hope {that a} story would emerge that will be value telling. I embrace myself within the group of people who questioned, “What the hell happened to that guy?” So I’m excited to step again into it. I’ve by no means had that have of enjoying a personality this a few years on.

Seriously, what did occur to that man?

At this cut-off date, we don’t know an entire lot in regards to the Dexter revival, together with what acquainted faces would possibly pop up throughout it. However, The Wrap experiences that the revival has forged the massive unhealthy who will go up in opposition to Dexter: Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption) will play Kurt Caldwell, “the unofficial mayor of a small town, Iron Lake.” Based on Showtime’s character description, Caldwell “…realized the American dream by going from driving big rigs, just like his father did, to now owning several trucks and the local truck stop. Powerful, generous, loved by everyone — he’s a true man of the people. If he’s got your back, consider yourself blessed. But should you cross Kurt, or hurt anyone that he cares for, God help you.”

Is he a serial killer, too? Even in hiding, Dexter meets the worst individuals.

Clyde Phillips, the showrunner on the primary 4 seasons of Dexter (the very best ones) is all set to return for the revival. So we will solely hope he and Hall teaming again up will erase the atrocious recollections of season 8 when the brand new episodes air later this yr.
