News broke last month of the exciting news that Showtime’s iconic serial killer DEXTER is returning for a limited season run, eight years after the much criticised finale was shown.

With Michael C Hall returning to the role and with original showrunner Clyde Phillips back at the helm, it’s just been announced that one of the original directors, Marcos Siega, is also returning and he will direct six episodes of the planned 10 episode run.

Phillips has confirmed already that this new season will provide a new, hopefully more satisfying ending for fans.

We’re not going to betray the audience and say, ‘Whoops, that was all a dream. What happened in the first eight years happened in the first eight years. 10 years, or however many years, have passed by the time this will air, and the show will reflect that time passage. In 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 for our show, and Showtime was very gracious about that.

It’s also been announced that the show will be set 10 years after the original finale with Dexter living under a new name, far away from the Miami setting.

Being a huge Dexter fan, I for one, can not wait.
