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.”
