In a recent interview for Variety, Michael C. Hall has opened up about the possibility of returning to “Dexter”. He said: “I try not to take it all too seriously. I realize ‘Dexter’ will be in the first paragraph of my obituary if one is written, maybe the first sentence, but that’s fine.”
He added that when the series came to a close in 2013, he knew he wanted some variety. “When ‘Dexter’ ended, I wanted to mix it up and felt like the cumulative effect of the things I have done since has served as a sort of ‘Dexorcism.’”
But could “Dexter” come back, and would he ever return to the character? “Maybe,” Hall said. “It’s a possibility given how the show ended that we could revisit ‘Dexter.’ I have just yet to, for my part, imagine or hear someone else’s idea that makes it feel worth doing. But never say never.”
In the meantime, Hall plays a Brit in his new series “Safe” and relishes the challenge. “As an American actor, I often see people from the U.K. or Australia or anywhere else come and play Americans and that’s perfectly acceptable, but I like the idea of turning the tables. Having a chance to play someone who is more or less a normal person and around and to whom crazy things are happening, as opposed to a person within whom crazy things are happening” was, Hall said, “a nice change of pace.”

HollywoodLife has exclusive details about a “Dexter” prequel in development. According to a TV industry source, “Dexter producers are scrambling to capitalize on the latest buzz and excitement surrounding a Dexter return. due to the certain cast restrictions, some players may be eager to come back, while others may be committed to other projects, producers are coming up with creative ideas to satisfy fans using the characters that are available”.
“A Dexter prequel series is now in development, which may include a younger Dexter with more of a back story, as well as some spinoff series with other major characters. We saw through flashbacks that Dexter’s adoptive dad Harry Morgan saw hi’s son urge to kill early on and trained him under the “Code of Harry” to harness his homicidal ways to be a vigilante and only kill bad guys. There’s definitely plenty of stories to mined from that.”
Michael C. Hall isn’t ruling out Dexter’s return for Season 9, but he isn’t sure now is the time to revive the show. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Hall was asked if he’d had any thoughts on bringing back the cult serial killer show…
The “Dexter” actor disclosed that he isn’t ruling out a Dexter reboot. In fact, he believes it will happen at some point. However, he isn’t sure if now is the time for the show to come back, but he is “in talks” with Showtime for the right time to resurrect the show.” I don’t think it’s quite time. But it’s a conversation that continues at its own pace.”
