More seasons of 'Dexter' may be on the cards, and we're crossing our fingers

scandal 16/11/2018

Everyone's favourite serial killer (not a sentence we thought we'd ever utter) might be returning for new seasons in future.

Michael C. Hall plays Dexter Morgan, a forensic expert slash brutal serial killer, in the show 'Dexter', and he has said he wouldn't be against returning to his old role if the show was brought back. 

The sadly finished up back in 2013 (how has it been that long already?!?) after eight seasons, and when asked about returning to the show Hall replied: "Every time I'm asked about [another season of Dexter]. I say, 'Never say never'. The next thing I know there's an announcement on the internet saying, 'He's going to do it again'. The way that show ended gave no sense of closure for people and a lot of questions unanswered."

"He seems to be in this self-imposed exile, he certainly didn't ride off into the sunset. His sister died. It left a gnarly knot in some viewers' stomachs. I stand by how that 8th season ended."

SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED. You've been warned. 

"If he had kept on killing people he'd have been fine, but he gets married, he opens his imagination and heart. He has a real connection to people, and all those people are compromised or destroyed in some way. For it to be all tidied up after that would have not been honest. For him to simulate his own death and extricate himself from the context of his life made sense to me. As far as any more of that happening, it's possible."

So, it's not DEFINITELY happening... but it's not definitely NOT happening, right? 

We've got our fingers and toes crossed regardless.
