Trailer drops for new season of Dexter which airs November 7
For plenty of people around the world, bloody Dexter remains one of the greatest shows they’ve ever had the pleasure of watching. Yeah, there are some reservations about the way the show ended, but by and large, the show’s remembered fondly and fans have been clamouring for more Dexter for years. So, as you can imagine, when Showtime announced they were rebooting it – and that the show’s star Michael C Hall would be involved – people were pretty f**ken stoked. Now, they’ve finally announced the show’s premiere date and dropped a full trailer.
Yeah, look, if you’re a big fan of Dexter, you’ll already be walking around with a big stiffy thanks to this. If you’ve only made passing acquaintance with the show, though, this might give you a good reason to check it out.
As it says above, Showtime have finally dropped a premiere date for the hit show’s reboot, and on November 7, it’s a fair bet that legions of fans will be parking their arses on the couch to catch up with their old serial killer friend, Dexter Morgan.
Showtime co-president of entertainment Gary Levine reckons: “Dexter is such a special series, both for its millions of fans and for Showtime, as this breakthrough show helped put our network on the map many years ago. We would only revisit this unique character if we could find a creative take that was truly worthy of the brilliant, original series.”
Obviously, they’ve done that, and even star Michael C Hall is excited. Speaking about the show’s return, he said, “It’s a conversation that’s been ongoing, and different possibilities have emerged over the years. In this case, the story that’s being told is worth telling in a way that other proposals didn’t, and I think enough time has passed where it’s become intriguing in a way that it wasn’t before.”
He’s not naïve to the show’s previous conclusion being a bit hit and miss with fans either. “And let’s be real,” he said, “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.”
Apparently, that story will see the serial killer having assumed a false identity and living in a new locale where he hopes his past won’t be exposed. We reckon that probably won’t go well for him. The show begins on Showtime on November 7, and will run for 10 episodes. So far, there’s no word whether it’ll be a one-off or an ongoing return.
Final thought: Yeah, nah, while there’s always going to be claims about cash-grabs when shows are rebooted, you have to love that they’ve chosen to take it further rather than reboot it. We reckon that’s always a f**ken smart idea. If you’re a fan, let us know what you reckon.
