Michael C. Hall quietly married book critic Morgan Macgregor in New York City on Monday, Feb. 29, after almost four years of dating.
The “Dexter” alum married his longtime girlfriend in a private ceremony at New York City Hall, according to several reports. Hall, 45, and his bride, a book reviewer and novelist, have dated for about four years. The two notably stepped out together at the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards when the Showtime star was nominated again for lead actor in a drama.
Hall was previously wed to actress Amy Spanger from 2002 to 2007 and “Dexter” costar Jennifer Carpenter, who played his adoptive sister on the series, from 2008 to 2011.
“Dexter” may be coming back for more blood, as Showtime mulls a revival with series star Michael C. Hall. Recently, it has come to light the reason the show has not been renewed for season nine quite yet.
Showtime has expressed an interest in renewing the show since 2014; however, it appears that Michael C. Hall may be the one delaying production at this point, according to Hollywood Life. In an interview in late 2014, Gary Levine stated they had a general outline of the season, and just needed Showtime to agree and sign actors’ contracts. It was a letdown a few months later when it was discovered that it didn’t work out, and “Dexter” was pushed aside once again.
ScreenCrush reports that David Nevins, the head of Showtime, recently spoke at the TCA press tour panel, where he talked about the idea of resurrecting old series, including “Dexter”.
“Dexter is the one show that I would think about [continuing]. It’s a question of when the timing is right. If there’s a willingness to do it, I would certainly listen. Certainly I’d look at Dexter,” he said.
All the core cast members have agreed to return to the show, except Michael C. Hall. To continue with the series, Michael C. Hall will have to agree to reprise the role. Showtime has stated multiple times, they will not recast the role of Dexter Morgan.
“Dexter” aired on Showtime for 8 seasons, between 2006 and 2013, and it remains as one of the network’s most popular series to date.
