After Season 8's controversial ending left many fans unsatisfied in 2013, Showtime has some amends to make with the upcoming revival of Dexter. The new season will consist of 10 episodes, all directed and produced by Marcos Siega.
Long time showrunner Clyde Philips is still attached to the project and has teased new details for the story in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter:
"We basically do get to start from scratch. … Ten years, or however many years, have passed by the time this will air, and the show will reflect that time passage. So far as the ending of the show, this will have no resemblance to how the original finale was. It’s a great opportunity to write a second finale."
Philips then added that "they're not going to betray the audience like nothing's happened" and that the events of the eight season will have their impacts and not feel like a dream.
Michael C. Hall's Dexter was last seen living his new life in exile as a lumberjack, putting aside his past as a serial killer. At this moment here's no current info about the returning cast besides him.
Production on the Dexter revival is scheduled to start early next year. The show will then drop on Showtime in late 2021.
