After a finale that left a bad taste in many fans’ mouths, Dexter is returning to TV in 2021 with a revival show featuring Michael C. Hall reprising his role as the killer with a conscience. Hall has now shared a little more insight on what drew him back to the show after so many years away. He also touched on the series finale and whether or not the criticisms are valid.
“It’s a conversation that’s been ongoing, and different possibilities have emerged over the years. I think 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,” Hall told The Daily Beast.
Hall also reflected on the divisive ending to Dexter, where he basically exiles himself to a life as a lumberjack in the north. Hall acknowledged that the ending was “pretty unsatisfying” for some people, with many wondering what Dexter would do next in his life. Hall felt that way, too.
