Serial killer hunter ‘Dexter’ returns for limited series run
Dexter, the hugely popular ‘serial killer who kills serial killers’ television show, will be returning to the small screen for a limited 10-episode run.
The Showtime network made the announcement yesterday, detailing that production on the revival will start early next year and will see star Michael C. Hall reunited with the original showrunner Clyde Phillips.
“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 Showtime Networks' president of entertainment Gary Levine.
He added that Showtime was only willing to revive “this unique character if we could find a creative take that was truly worthy of the brilliant, original series.”
Levine added: “I am happy to report that Clyde and Phillips and Michael C. Hall have found it, and we can't wait to shoot it and show it to the world!”
No further details have been given, so fans will have to wait in order to see who has been cast, which characters will be returning and what the plot will center around.
If everything goes according to plan, the 10-episode series should air on Showtime around September next year.
