Showtime Denies Possibility of a Dexter Series Renewal
Rumours broke out in the aftermath of the Thanksgiving holiday that Dexter might be on the way back, given the show's official Twitter page sending out a cryptic holiday tweet.
The tweet read "who wants a leg? Happy Thanksgiving from #Dexter" The tweet was very quickly picked up by various websites and fueled speculation about a revival of the Michael C. Hall-starring serial killer drama.
After the weak ending to the series, and disappointment almost unanimously from fans and critics alike, there may have been hope that Dexter could do itself justice. On Monday, THR received notification from Showtime that there are no (current) plans to reboot Dexter.
Despite the confirmation, there's still no doubt that Dexter may live again after Showtime's David Nevins told reporters in January 2014 that they "continue to talk about it".
"If we were to do it, we have to have a very good reason to do it... I'm not interested in doing it if it's just a continuation. If we were to do it, I would only do it with Michael."
