America’s Beloved Serial Killer Celebrates 10 Years With A Murder Marathon!
Dexter Morgan, everyone’s favorite morose monologuing murderer, is back in the form of a marathon. It’s been ten years since Showtime aired the first episode of Dexter, one of its highest rated and most beloved series of all time. To celebrate this little gem Showtime is throwing Dexter a birthday bash by having fans vote on their ten favorite episodes that will air October 1st. There will also be a mobile puzzle game (developed by Gazillion) set for release this Halloween.
Showtime unveiled the trailer below as an announcement and a quick refresher for the series (in case you haven’t binge watched it in a while).
With rumors swirling that Showtime might pick the show back up for a last great hurrah, David Nevins, the President of Showtime, stated last year:
“Dexter is the one show that I would think about. It’s a question of when the timing is right. If there’s a willingness to do it, I would certainly listen. Certainly I’d look at Dexter.”
What better way to judge if there is still interest in the property than to run a marathon? Well, the best way is to have it curated by fans, that is! If it’s not viable, that’s fine it’s just for the anniversary. If the viewing numbers are there then great, we have a financial reason to make some new episodes. Right, Showtime???
Of course all of this is speculation, and even if it were true (please let it come true), it would depend on the primary actors’ availability. Jennifer Carpenter was staring as an FBI agent on the CBS tie-in Limitless (until its abrupt cancellation this year), and Michael C. Hall has taken to voice work and the stage lately (starring as the lead in Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Lazarus created by David Bowie).
Basically, Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter both are very active in their own respective careers, but here’s hoping the stars align and this is a way of slowly bringing back the show.
