Being Away Has Been Murder.
Showtime is bringing back serial killer series, Dexter for a limited series revival. Michael C. Hall reprises the role of the serial killer with a heart.
The premium cable network has handed the series a 10-part run that is set to go into production in early 2021 with a tentative premiere date of fall 2021.
The original followed Dexter Morgan, who was a complicated and conflicted blood-spatter expert for the Miami Police Department but moonlighted as a serial killer.
Gary Levine, Co-President of Entertainment at Showtime, said that the network was only willing to revisit the “unique” character if they could find a creative take that was “worthy,” and they have “found it”.
Fans of the series were severely let down by the awkward finale that featured Dexter giving his son away, burying his sister at sea, and then retreating into the woods and becoming a lumberjack.
We deserved better. Hopefully this limited series will rectify that.
