'Dexter' revived at Showtime for limited series

Now, according to Phillips, this ten-episode limited series will provide an opportunity to present a second finale to the show. James Remar, however, appeared in flashbacks through the show's entire run as Dexter's deceased father. Hall will reprise his role as Dexter Morgan, the Miami Metro Police Department blood spatter analyst by day, green-shirted killer by night. We would have re-proposed the story of this unique character only by finding a creative way worthy of such a brilliant and original series.

American premium tv community Showtime is again with a restricted episode collection of the serial killer drama Dexter, with Michael C Hall set to return. Well, I'm happy to tell you that Clyde Phillips and Michael C. Hall have found this way, and we can't wait to shoot it and show it to the world! It honestly felt like season 2 when Dexter's victims were first spotted and the walls seem to be getting closer to him, more like a final season, and I've always found it freaky that the series would end with the show on Dexter never was and the public deal with his crimes.

Showrunner Scott Buck defended the finale to Entertainment Weekly at the time: 'Even if i don't write an episode, I'm still in charge. It's a hard question to answer'. If they knew how much we agonized internally about everything... if we then tried to factor in an assortment of opinions it would dilute the process'. So this choice was made to remedy that ending that really made everyone discuss.

Phillips also revealed after the finale that he'd planned to end the series with Dexter waking up on an execution table at a Florida penitentiary, with all his victims sitting in the gallery, watching him go out.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Phillips said that the team doesn't want the project to be "Dexter season 9", but rather something different than what fans are used to.

'Literally, his life flashed before his eyes as he was about to die. I don't think I even watched it", adding: "I thought it was narratively satisfying - but it was not so savoury.... However, plot details for the series are being kept under wraps.
