Welcome again Dexter Morgan (or ought to we are saying “Jim Lindsey”?).
Showtime launched the primary trailer throughout San Diego Comic Con on Sunday for its upcoming revival of “Dexter,” which you’ll watch in the participant above.
First factor’s first… he is now not chopping wooden up in Oregon.
The revival picks up 10 years after the tip of “Dexter,” which aired its season finale in 2013. It finds Dexter now dwelling in the small fictional city of Iron Lake in upstate New York. Clancy Brown stars as Kurt Caldwall, the unofficial mayor of the city and the revival’s chief adversary. The revival may even function returning (and deceased) “Dexter” characters corresponding to Jennifer Carpenter’s Debra Morgan and John Lithgow’s Arthur Mitchell.
The “Dexter” revival is about one decade after the sequence finale, which is about how a lot real-life time has handed since then.
The “Dexter” finale — which noticed Morgan leaving Miami for Oregon as he exiled himself following the loss of life of his sister Debra (Jennifer Carpenter) — is among the many most generally mocked endings to a long-running sequence (till “Game of Thrones” got here alongside). Most followers discovered Morgan’s ending limp, particularly as a result of his double life as a vigilante serial killer was by no means found by his fellow Miami P.D. coworkers, regardless of it changing into fairly apparent towards the tip.
Hall hopes the upcoming revival could make up for it.
“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,” Hall informed The Daily Beast in an interview again in January. “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.”
