Showtime has ordered a limited series revival of the beloved serial killer drama Dexter with Michael C. Hall set to return.
Production is set to begin in 2021 for a fall debut of 10 episodes.
Former series showrunner Clyde Phillips is also set to return.
Gary Levine, co-president of entertainment for Showtime said:
“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. 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 shoot it and show it to the world!”
Hall starred as Dexter Morgan throughout the show’s eight season original run on Showtime. Dexter was a serial killer who specifically targeted other serial killers while also holding down a job as a blood spatter expert for the Miami Police Department.
Produced by Showtime, Dexter will be executive produced by Phillips, Hall, John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, Bill Carraro and Scott Reynolds.
