Dexter actor Michael C. Hall opened up his thoughts about the reboot of the hit series and showed his excitement to step back into the series that made the finale in 2013.
As we all know, ‘Dexter’ that aired on Showtime ended in 2013 and the fans disappointed after the ambiguous end. However, back in October, Michael C Hall confirmed that he would be returning for a new 10-episode reboot of the hit series on Showtime.
During a recent interview with ‘The Daily Beast,’ the 49-year-old actor discussed the disappointment of the hit series’ fans and revealed he understood their confusion over what happened to Dexter.
Here’s what he said:
“Let’s be real: people found the way that show left things pretty unsatisfying, and there’s always been a hope that a story would emerge that would be worth telling.
“I include myself in the group of people that wondered, ‘What the hell happened to that guy?’ So I’m excited to step back into it. I’ve never had that experience of playing a character this many years on.”
The reboot will act as a sequel to the character Dexter, ending in 2013 after eight seasons.
On the other hand, showrunner Clyde Phillips was interviewed recently and echoed Hall’s sentiments, promising to make the original ending ‘right.’ During the interview, the showrunner said that the series would basically start from scratch.
Here’s what Clyde Phillips stated:
“10 years, or however many years, have passed by the time this will air, and the show will reflect that time passage. It’s a great opportunity to write a second finale for our show, and Showtime was very gracious about that.”
