    I forget, at the end of s8 was it pretty inevitable the truth was gonna come out about Dexter? Or did he escape cleanly? Quinn always suspected him of something, I know.
    He killed the person who kill Deb on camera that Bautista and Quinn saw. I don't think it would make sense for someone from his past to be hunting him. If anything I would think his quiet life of him attempting to keep the dark passenger down gets disrupted somehow.

    If I were writing this, Dexter would be chafing at not letting his Dark Passenger out, trying to keep himself somewhere isolated enough he has no opportunity. But then he starts getting messages. And it becomes clear by the end of episode 1 that someone knows that Dexter Lumberjack (or whatever he's calling himself) is Dexter Morgan, ex-forensic specialist and serial killer. Do they just want to hunt the best prey there is, as they hunt him back? Or is there something else going on? I don't even know how I'd answer those questions, but it's at least a place to start.
    Yeah, I probably didn't explain my thoughts very well. I don't want a complete soft reboot either. I don't want Dexter to just be in a new city doing the same things he always did. I want to see a Dexter that has learned from the mistakes he's made...even if he's learned the wrong lessons. As much as I'd like to forget the last couple seasons of Dexter... I don't think ignoring them is a good idea for the show.

    As for your idea about someone knowing about Dexter and kind of playing with him...that runs the risk of retreading old ground itself. It's essentially what the Ice-Truck-Killer did.

    Someone going the Dallas route on the revival. Not a bad idea...You could honestly make all the seasons after Rita died as it was a nasty nightmare/fugue state Dexter was in, and then go down the route of the Aster & Cody becoming budding serial killering duo, with Harrison holding resentment to Dexter similar to Deb with Harry.

    Isn't the whole incest genre the "it thing" in pornography for the last decade or so? "What are you doing to me step bro."

    If it's not Deb hunting him, I can't think of anyone I'd want to bring back who Dexter hasn't already DEFINITELY killed.
    They could bring Debra back as a ghost. Perhaps even a manifestation of his impulses, pushing him to kill. I think that'd be a fun dynamic, and a contrast to her actual character.

    For me, it started going downhill after he started getting serious with the first GF and moved-in with her and the kids. I think the show runners also started to see the decline in viewers and that’s why they killed her off then sent the kids away.

    Dexter playing house (father, husband.... family man), just ruined the character for me.

    The ending was bad so I'm okay with them doing something with Dexter, it's not like anything is going to be ruined by it

    Unexpected. I doubt they can unfuck the story but I'll watch them try.

    This is excellent news. Excellent show that arguably started to go down hill at season 5 of its 8 seasons. The series finale is regarded as one of the worst of all time.


    I do hope this makes up for it. I can’t wait.
    Do we know what a 'revival' entails? Are we carrying on from the ending of the show, later, sooner? Different canon completely?

    I love Dexter, I even enjoyed watching the later seasons but the ending was very weak, I don't want more of that please. Also I fuckin' love Michael C. Hall, gimme more of that dude.

    Edit: Forgive my ignorance, it's been ages since I watched Dexter and I also don't know much about how it was adapted. But wasn't it based on a novel series such that we can find out what archs remain to be explored? Assuming of course, the show remained true to the books. I don't know if that is the case.

    I am cautiously optimistic about this. Season 8 of Dexter was possibly one of the worst ever seasons of television; however I will probably watch regardless in the hope they retcon basically the very end of Season 7 and all of Season 8

    I actually didn't mind seasons 5-7 (each of them beats season 3 by a mile), but season 8 (that never actually happened) was GoT finale level of awful. Not sure how they can climb out of that flaming dumpster.

    After every episode people in Dexter's thread on MMO-C made deliberately bad and inane predictions for the next episode to mock the plot and somehow the worst ones always ended up being correct.

    I remember that the final season was 2 episodes shorter than intended, since they rushed filming and completing it. That severely fucked up the pacing of the season.


    So that, added that the story of the season itself was kind of lackluster, made it come off even worse.


    I feel like if they did rush production then the finale wouldn’t have been that bad. We would of felt more emotion about Debra’s death and actually believed that Dexter “caused” it. Or that he deserved to fake his death so others wouldn’t have to suffer because of his presence.


    Instead it just was like “aaaaaaand here we are, final episode” to a disconnected season narrative. The Brain Surgeon idea was just awful.

    "But with the 10-episode revival picking up in real time, so many years later, “We basically do get to start from scratch,” returning showrunner Clyde Phillips told the Oct. 16 episode of THR’s always entertaining TV’s Top 5 podcast.

    “We want this to not be Dexter Season 9,” he continued. “Ten years, or however many years, have passed by the time this will air, and the show will reflect that time passage. So far as the ending of the show, this will have no resemblance to how the original finale was. It’s a great opportunity to write a second finale.”"

    Great that Clyde is back aswell

    I think the only thing in the books left untouched by the series was Astor (Rita's daughter) becoming a serial killer. They had a few moments where Astor was becoming "dark" and moody, but then they just shunted the kids offscreen to the grandparents, and that was that, and they kind of put that worry of Dexter's on Harrison as he grew into a little boy.

    But if they really are doing a 10 year fast forward, they could possibly pick up the Astor (or even Harrison) storyline like that. Astor would be in her mid-20s, Harrison would probably be like 14-15?

    I dont think so....in the show, they all think he is dead. so probably from the "shows" perspective. At least thats the way i understood it.

    They are referring to the show. That's it.

    I am happy for this as well. They brought in that one guy for season 5 (Chip Johannessen) as the show runner for the season and I just remember how utterly lame the season was. It had its moments for sure, but I felt like (at that time) that the season was utterly weak.


    Clyde has me excited.

    I liked it from start to finish, even though obviously it went downhill, to keep it somewhat real it should have had maybe maximum 2 seasons, like some miniseries. But it was still entertaining...

    The ending was not even close the worst ending ever. That belongs to Lost, the show that trolled the whole planet for many years end finished with a big fart. And probably second to that, at a pretty big distance though, we find Game of Thrones.

    For me the best series ever, including the final, still remains Breaking Bad...
