Dexter: New Blood showrunner talks bringing Dexter Morgan back for another outing

Ok, look, we don’t want to discuss the finale of Dexter: New Blood.

We were excited, the season was great and we prayed Dexter would finally get the ending he deserved… whether he did or not, I’ll leave up to you guys but in my opinion, Showtime didn’t handle the ending well at all. Again.

Anyway, with the show now over, could we see more Dexter down the line despite his demise at the hands of his son, Harrison?

Executive Producer and Showrunner Clyde Phillips talked about it in a new interview, saying: “As you can imagine, that’s not the first time I’ve been asked that, Dexter is hugely successful for Showtime.

“It’s all in Showtime’s hands, if they were to call me and say, ‘We want to do Harrison. We want you to figure it out,’ I’m pretty busy, but I would drop everything I’m doing and jump right into it. I would love to do it, but it’s really up to Showtime.”

After the finale, it was revealed that Dexter: New Blood was Showtime’s most-watched show ever, so it’s very likely they’re looking at ways of bringing him back.

Star Michael C Hall has been known to not want to come back to Dexter after this series, and it’s why he wanted to do this season, to put the character to bed.

But we’re wondering if Showtime throws enough money at him, might he reconsider?

After all, young actor Jack Alcott’s Harrison Morgan was established as having the same dark tendencies as his father, Dexter, so having him headline the new show with Dexter being his Dark Passenger, the voice in his head ala Harry in the original series and Deb in New Blood is certainly a way to go.

That said, maybe it’s time to leave Dexter in peace? Or is that just us.

They’re going to do it, aren’t they? Ugh.
