Dexter showrunner addresses original ending, calls new series "an opportunity to make that right"
Usually people - up to and including star Michael C. Hall, who basically said, "Hey, what are you going to do about it?" Shrug on demand - didn't love the ending of Showtime's Dexter. Some of this is likely due to our nation's rampant lumberjack phobia, but much of it can be traced back to the show's increasingly strict steps from reality in the air in recent years and to a fairly intense eye - We're Rolling Over the idea that our old pal Dexter Morgan manages to extend his magical ability to get away with anything with anyone to the literal forces of nature itself.
All of this is assured by Dexter Revival series showrunner, Clyde Phillips. Phillips - who has an interesting relationship with the series as most people share the "good" and "bad" seasons of Dexter at the point where he left the series after leading it for the first four seasons - explained this The just-announced revival series won't "undo" anything that already happened on the series. However, Phillips noted in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter's Top 5 podcast, “By the time the show ends, this will look nothing like the original finale. It's a great opportunity to write a second finale. "
Phillips added that while this is specifically not the reason the new series was created, "This is an opportunity to correct this," in reference to the disappointing response to the show's original 2013 finale. The new series will not serve as a direct continuation of this odyssey, but jumps forward as long as in the real world, in which we can only assume that Dexter killed himself a whole forest full of trees. "We don't want this to be Dexter Season 9," Phillips said while making it clear, "we're not going to betray the audience and say," Oops, this was all a dream. "What happened in the first eight years happened in the first eight years."
Showtime announced the revival of Dexter earlier this week. Hall has pledged to come back as everyone's favorite serial killer, but he's nice.
