Showtime is bringing back its successful crime drama Dexter after an eight-year break and star Michael C. Hall is on board.
The 10-part limited series is expected to go into production next year.
Producer Clyde Phillips is also coming back for the new series and no details have been announced about what Dexter will be up to.
Showtime’s Co-president of Entertainment Gary Levine said the show, which originally ran from 2006 to 2013, would never be revisited unless there was a brilliant idea to take it forward.
“We would only revisit this unique character if we could find a creative take that was truly worthy of the brilliant, original series,” he said in a statement.
“Well, I am happy to report that Clyde Phillips and Michael C Hall have found it.”.
