The popular TV show about a serial killer with morals, Dexter, has been off the air since 2013. But that doesn't mean he's dead for good...
...Via Variety, Michael C. Hall, the actor who portrayed Dexter through the hit show of the same name, recently spoke to Variety's theater podcast, Stagecraft, about the possibility of of a Dexter reboot, in no specific capacity:
“People on the street are always telling me about the talk of a ‘Dexter’ reboot,” said Hall of the popular Showtime series in which he starred for eight seasons. “There’ve been little percolations, but nothing that’s felt worth pursuing.” The actor is open to the idea — “it’s an amazing world, and he’s not dead” — but, he added, “I don’t have any immediate, definitive plans to do any of that.”
For those that never watched, Dexter was a highly compelling show (at least for four seasons) that ran for eight years on Showtime. It followed a forensics expert/moralistic serial killer, Dexter, a man who cannot help killing, and uses his expertise to hunt other serial killers.
As far as a reboot goes, this is nowhere near a thing at this point, but never count out Hollywood's pretense to scrape whatever flesh is remaining off a classic's bones and paste it together for a show. Hall doesn't make clear what his interest in a reboot would be, whether or not he would appear in it or produce, etc., but I'm not sure I'm into this at the moment. We've only been away from Dexter for a decade, and the last few seasons didn't exactly endear fans to the series forever. I say let's have a little more time to miss Dexter Morgan before he tries to charm us back into loving him.
