Showtime has ordered a 10 episode mini-series.
Showrunner Clyde Phillips is returning. Michael C. Hall is reprising his role as the infamous serial killer.
With the return of the original showrunner and main character, we can expect the show to follow the original 8 season series storyline. Starting off with Dexter’s return from self-exile. Phillips told Hollywoodreporter
“This isn’t ‘Dexter’ season 9. This was an opportunity to provide a second finale for the show.”
Production is expected to begin in early 2021. Showtime is hoping to release the mini-series in fall of the same year.
