The 49-year-old Game Night actor has been missing from our Showtime screens for nearly 8 years but the wait for resurfacing is over.
In a statement from Showtime Entertainment‘s president, Gary Levine, the network is just as excited about the project as viewers. He explained, “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. Well, I am happy to report that Clyde Phillips and Michael C. Hall have found it, and we can’t wait to shoot it and show it to the world!”
Dexter ran for 8 seasons, leading to Hall receiving 5 consecutive Golden Globe nominations, 6 Screen Actors Guild nominations and 5 Emmy nominations.
