'Dexter' revival will be set a decade after the final season.
The forthcoming return of Dexter is scheduled to take place ten years after the concluding season, it's been confirmed. Back in October, it was announced Michael C. Hall will be coming back for a new 10-episode revival of the famous Showtime series.
The renaissance would serve as a progression in the story of Dexter, which concluded in 2013 after eight amazing seasons (albeit the final one left a bitter taste much to the dismay of fans) and saw the serial killer head into self-inflicted exile.
Dexter series finale is widely regarded as one of the worst endings in TV history.
The Hollywood Reporter has now confirmed the timeline for the restoration that will be set ten years after the initial finale of the series.
The synopsis reads,
Set 10 years after Dexter Morgan went missing in the eye of Hurricane Laura, the revival sees the character now living under an assumed name in a world away from Miami.
THR further confirmed Marcos Siega (executive producer) will be sitting on the director's chair for six of the 10 episodes, while Clyde Phillips will be serving as the lead producer.
So far as the ending of the show, this will have no resemblance to how the original finale was. It’s a great opportunity to write a second finale.
During one of the recent interviews, Phillips said the new reboot intends to make the original ending "right," adding that although it won't "undo" the initial finale, it would "basically start from scratch."

10 years, or however many years, have passed by the time this will air, and the show will reflect that time passage.
The showrunner insisted, as far as the ending of the series is concerned, this would bear no similarity to the previous finale. He added it's a perfect moment to compose a second finale and Showtime was pretty supportive about it.
