Although the original run of the hit Showtime series Dexter was rather negatively received, it looks like the network is offering a second chance to end the series on a high note. In fact, they’ve greenlit an entire new season of the series that sounds especially exciting and should definitely make up for the lackluster finale that was released in 2013. With production of the new Dexter revival currently underway, a new promo has been released. As you can see below, Michael C. Hall returns as Dexter and you can hear his iconic voice deliver an exciting narration in the promo.
The Dexter revival promo focuses on an axe that’s been placed into a tree stump. The background consists of a snowy area with a light fire burning. It’s incredibly atmospheric and matches the simple narration that Michael C. Hall has to offer. As he himself states in the promo:
“There really is nothing like getting back to nature. My nature.”

Indeed, this is the perfect narration to hype up the new revival. After all, we last saw the character Dexter with a new identity and position as a lumberjack. This promo then acts as a nice glimpse as to how the new revival will not only follow where the show previously left off, but it also lets fans know that the new season will be going back to the show’s roots. And that’s definitely what we all want to see.
In the new Dexter revival…
“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.”
The cast stars actor Michael C. Hall who will once again play the titular Dexter. Also confirmed for the new season is Jamie Chung, Clancy Brown, Julia Jones, Alano Miller, Johnny Sequoyah, and Jack Alcott.
Clyde Phillips will once again act as showrunner for the revival. While the exact release date for the new season is unknown, it’s currently expected to debut sometime in the fall of 2021.
