It is happening!!
Remember last month when we found out that Dexter would be coming back with another 10-episode season? Well, it is finally happening!
I have to be honest, I am really excited to see where they go with this because I HATED the way Dexter ended 7 years ago. It was just blah and so many people felt the same way.
So, honestly, I see this new season as a sort of redemption to give us the series finale we deserve.
According to reports, Dexter Season 9 will begin filming January 2021 and we will see a new villain of sorts go up against Dexter.
Michael C. Hall will reprise his role of Dexter for the series and going up against him will be a new character, a “50 year old man named Kurt.”
According to The Illuminerdi, Kurt is described as having a season long arc for the ten-episode limited series, revealing him to be a trucker from the Northeastern part of America that owns a own the local truck stop in town and has “established himself as a beloved leader in the community.”
He harbors a secret though in his son Matthew which has “created many messes” which require his father to use his wealth to clean-up. I’m assuming “messes” is code for “murder victims.”
Whether or not it will be the same Dexter we know, who knows but we do know what they are thinking in terms of the new season:
“We basically do get to start from scratch,” executive producer Clyde Phillips previously told THR.
“We want this to not be Dexter season 9. Ten years have passed – or however many years have passed by the time this will air – and the show will reflect that time passage. Insofar as the ending of the show: this will have no resemblance to how the original finale was – and it’s a great opportunity to write a second finale for a show, and Showtime was very gracious about that.”
So, sounds like they are doing exactly what we want – a better series finale!
Cross our fingers it is going to be awesome! No word on when this will be released but at things are moving along!
