Dexter’s revival is just around the corner, and now fans have been treated to a first-look image of the cast.
In 2020, a ten-episode limited series with Michael C Hall reprising the role of serial killer Dexter Morgan was greenlit. Last month, Showtime released the first trailer for the series, ahead of its US debut next month.
A new image shows a mix of both new and recurring characters in the snow, teasing what lies ahead for one of the most polarising anti-heroes of recent TV history.
The last season of the show had left Dexter taking on a new identity as a lumberjack in the Pacific Northwest, and it looks like this is where the new chapter will be set.
We also get a look at the ensemble cast posing in front of a snowy lodge. From left to right: Clancy Brown as Kurt Caldwell, Johnny Sequoyah as Audrey Bishop, Jack Alcott as Harrison Morgan, Alano Miller as Logan, Julia Jones as Angela Bishop, Michael C. Hall as Dexter Morgan, and Jennifer Carpenter as Debra Morgan.
Speaking about this new instalment, co-president of entertainment for Showtime Gary Levine weighed in on the significance the series holds.
“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,” Levin told Variety.
“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 [showrunner] Clyde Phillips and Michael C Hall have found it, and we can’t wait to shoot it and show it to the world.”
Alongside the returning characters, this new series will also star Once Upon a Time’s Jamie Chung, as well as David Magidoff, Oscar Wahlberg and Michael Cyril Creighton.
