    Dexter is back to his blood-splattering ways after Showtime ordered a new limited-series revival of the long-running serial-killer drama.

    Michael C. Hall, who starred as the title character in the 2006-13 series, is back along with showrunner Clyde Phillips. 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”.



    [SPOILER ALERT.] There are no details as to the whereabouts of Hall’s Dexter in the reboot, but the finale of Season 8 saw Dexter having faked his death and living under a new name in Oregon after wrecking his boat and escaping from a hospital with the body of his sister, who had been shot and left in a coma, and having sent his son Harrison and love interest Hannah to live in Argentina.

    Hall previously has said that it was a possibility that he would return to the character. The reboot has been long-discussed with former Showtime boss David Nevins, who now is Chief Creative Officer, CBS & Chairman and CEO at Showtime Networks; he said back in 2015 that Dexter was the one show that he would think about continuing.

    Phillips joined Dexter after the pilot had been shot and became writer, exec producer and showrunner of Seasons 1-4. He then left the show but was credited as a consultant on the first few episodes of Season 5.

    Dexter is produced by Showtime and executive produced by Phillips, Hall, John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, Bill Carraro and Scott Reynolds.

    Dexter is such a special series, both for its millions of fans and for Showtime, as this breakthrough show helped put our network on the map many years ago,” said Levine. “We would only revisit this unique character if we could find a creative take that was truly worthy of the brilliant, original series. Well, I am happy to report that Clyde Phillips and Michael C. Hall have found it, and we can’t wait to s---t it and show it to the world.”

    I'm all for this. They really can't ruin it anymore than they did with the last few seasons and finale. Having the showrunner who did season 1-4 is big

    It always bothered me how after season 4, Dexter just didn't care about his step kids.

    Seasons 1-4 are so different than seasons 5-8. I don't know if they can ever salvage the damage done in those last 4 seasons, but I'm glad that Phillips is back.

    I doubt they'd bring back a show of this magnitude without a strong plan to make amends for that ending.

    Although I could also see it just being a "10 years later" type continuation.

    I loved Dexter. I have always liked good stories of murders etc. Actually, that's how I first started to read books. So my interest in the theme of the show was obvious. Plus, it was brilliantly exacuted. I'm lookin' forward to this.

    Really enjoyed Dexter in its Prime. Liked how it went from his values of just killing people who "deserved" it to his full blown addiction. Although it did get annoying towards the end that his values just didn't really seem to matter any more.

    And yes, it was a crap ending.

    So what does everyone want this to cover? I'd be happy with some level of explanation of how he has controlled his addiction over the last 10+ years and what has lead to him restarting again.
    I'd be pissed if the storyline is just simply that he's been doing it all the time but now we're going to show you.
