Dexter Revival Showrunner, Who Didn’t Make Finale, Says New Series Will Make Things Right
While the new Dexter revival won’t undo anything from the original series, returning showrunner Clyde Phillips will offer a new ending.
Dexter’s Disastrous Ending, Explained
Get 20% off Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/TheTake/ | Over the course of eight seasons, the Showtime series Dexter always seemed to be building to a grand finale. Instead, James Manos Jr.’s show about a serial killer (Michael C. Hall) went out quietly and ambiguously. It’s never easy to end a long-running series in a way that satisfies everyone, but Dexter’s ending was uniquely reviled in comparison to the controversial finales of shows like Lost, The Sopranos, and Game of Thrones. So where did Dexter go so wrong? Here’s our Take on that controversial ending, and how shows like Dexter set expectations that, ultimately, decide whether they will leave us feeling satisfied.

Dexter: New Blood: 25 Things You Missed
Showtime’s newest hit show has done the impossible. The original series, starring Michael C. Hall, was a beloved series and one of the network’s biggest hits throughout its legendary seven season run. The only problem was that the series finale was regarded as one of the worst ever made. It saw the titular character ride into a hurricane instead of into the sunset. Not only that, but then it showed him inexplicably as a lumberjack in Oregon mere moments later. So for the new series to return us to the character AND actually make the show as lovable as its best days again is no small feat. This has got a lot to do with some of the behind the scenes secrets you may have missed.
For starters, many of the original cast members were joined by many of the original directors, writers and producers. They all worked primarily on the first four seasons of the series. So they brought it back to the vibe it had when our favorite character was just trying to live a normal life alongside his dark passenger. Well, they certainly brought it back to this with plenty of new romances, villains and friends to populate Jim Lindsay’s new life. Of course, this all comes crashing down with the return of Harrison and Clancy Brown’s Kurt Caldwell. This combines with the returns of Debra Morgan and the Trinity Killer to haunt him from the grave. Will the show end better this time or will it be another failure? I may have some clues to that before the new finale airs.
