Dexter starring Michael C. Hall took the world by storm after airing back in 2006. The show lasted 8 seasons and followed the life of Hall’s character, Dexter, who was a deeply damaged serial killer that murdered other serial killers. After the disappointing ending to season 8, many fans had low expectations from the revival series Dexter: New Blood.
Original showrunner Clyde Phillips was involved in the show. Phillips left the show after Season 4, many of whom considered that the starting point for the show’s decline in quality.
While the 10 episode series was going very strong for the 9 episodes for many fans, the controversial ending in the final episode left a bad taste in the mouths of many fans.
While speaking with LA Times, Michael C. Hall talked about the controversial ending of the show, which saw Dexter Morgan’s son Harrison killing him to end the show. Hall made it clear that he was quite satisfied with the way the show ended.
“The way the season concludes is one that resonates with me. It feels justifiable. As upsetting as it may be, I hope audiences will appreciate the resonance of Dexter dying this way at the hands of his son.”
Needless to say, many fans felt betrayed by the revival show’s ending and felt they did not redeem the show after season 8’s ending. Regardless, it seems Dexter is done for good.
