What is the show ‘Dexter’ about?
The plot of the series revolved around Dexter, a boy who gets adopted by Harry Morgan, a police officer after his mother gets murdered. The trauma that Dexter faces leads to the development of sociopathic issues. Hence, Harry asks Dexter to channel those energies to kill the cruel brutal criminals who end up escaping from the punishment of law. Dexter also worked in the forensic department and starts living a double life. As time passes, his emotions keep on varying. However, he needs to maintain a certain image in the society so that no one suspects him for anything.
Everything you need to know about the upcoming sequel of ‘Dexter’:
The showrunner went on to state that there were several mistakes from their end in the finale. The revival will rectify all of them and give out a better end to the series as it truly deserved. The series was highly rated by the audience at that time. However, the finale ended up creating a lot of controversy. It showed Deb, who was Dexter’s sister being declared brain dead after she suffers from a stroke. After that, Dexter goes into the hospital, takes his sister’s body, and drops it in the middle of the ocean during a hurricane. Fans were upset that the character they loved and the final episode they had waited for for so long had ended in such away. They felt that the production and the writers just wrote off the show with the motive to end it not considering any other factors.
The show stars Michael Hall, Julie Benz, Jennifer Carpenter, Lauren Velez, David Zayas, James Remar, Desmond Harrington, and many others. The show had quite a successful run. It was the most-watched series on Showtime. It has also won numerous awards such as the Golden Globe Awards, Screen Actors Guild Awards, Peabody Awards, and more. There is no update regarding the previous actors returning to the show. One should definitely catch up with the previous seasons before jumping into the reboot. The revival season will mostly be releasing in late 2021 or early 2022.
