What inspired the TV show Dexter

"Dexter": cult series gets a sequel

After eight seasons, the popular series "Dexter" was over. Seven years after the broadcast of last season, the murderous investigator is now apparently back. "Dexter" is supposed to flicker again on the fans' screens with a miniseries.

This news will please "Dexter" fans: The pay-TV channel Showtime has announced a mini-series of the format. Michael C. Hall will slip back into the role of Dexter. Those in charge of the station have ordered ten episodes to be produced for autumn 2021. Former showrunner Clyde Phillips is also on board.

Miniseries should pay homage to Dexter

"Dexter is such a special show, both for its million fans and Showtime, as this groundbreaking series helped make our station shine many years ago," said Cary Levine, co-president of entertainment for Showtime. "We would only revisit this unique character if we found a creative approach that is truly worthy of the brilliant, original series."

In addition to his time on "Dexter," Hall received an Emmy nomination in 2002 for work on the HBO series "Six Feet Under." He is also known for his work on projects such as Christine and Safe, as well as Broadway productions such as Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
