Following the announcement that a Dexter revival will be heading to Showtime in 2021, its star Michael C. Hall has discussed why he's chose to return to the character after all these years and a "unsatisfying" series finale.
Michael C. Hall will return to play Dexter Morgan and executive produce.
While Hall will reprise his role, it is unknown whether regulars from the show's first eight seasons like Jennifer Carpenter, David Zayas, C. S. Lee, or Boston native James Remar will join him.
As the bio states, Caldwell "realized the American dream by going from driving big rigs, just like his father did, to now owning several trucks and the local truck stop". He is generous, powerful, loved by everyone and should not be crossed.
"If he's got your back, consider yourself blessed", reads the official character synopsis for Kurt Caldwell. "But in case you end up upsetting or hurting someone he likes... may God help you", completes the short biography of the character. As per Showtime's logline, the new show is set 10 years after Dexter Morgan went missing in the eye of Hurricane Laura. Original showrunner Clyde Phillips will also helm the new series.
Now, in an interview with The Daily Beast, Hall commented on the unsatisfying series finale and hopes the upcoming limited series revival will make up for the previous ending.
Some found the final few episodes of the programme offering more questions than answers and will certainly be cheering the news that the show is getting a revival.
"I include myself in the group of people that wondered, 'What the hell happened to that guy?' So I'm excited to step back into it", Hall explained. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter back in October, Phillips said, "Michael certainly was aware that the ending wasn't well-received, and I believe that he was not completely satisfied with it".
Hall, who played the iconic blood spatter analyst by day, serial killer by night, hopes the reboot will give fans the closure they've been demanding since the show ended in 2013. Regardless of how his character Kurt Caldwell is written, I have the utmost confidence that Brown is the right choice for Dexter's limited series.
