This is exactly what 2020 needs...
Calling all Dexter fans!
via: TwitterThe news that you've all been waiting for has finally arrived after a 7-year wait.
A Dexter reboot is officially happening...
via: IMDBAnd fans couldn't be more excited!
Now, we all know and love Michael C. Hall for portraying the serial killer...
via: GettyThe first season of Dexter launched in 2006 on ShowTime and from the get-go, viewers were hooked.
Dexter is a mild-mannered blood spatter analyst who works for the Miami Metro police...But he moonlights as a blood-thirsty serial killer who channels his urges on only those who "deserve to die."
For example...Dexter targets people such as killers, pedophiles, and those who have caused great harm in their life.
And his killing methods?
via: IMDBWell, because he works for the homicide department, Dexter is very precise at cleaning up after himself in order to not leave a single trace of the murder. Also, his killing "ritual" certainly isn't for the faint-hearted.
Of course, Dexter's dark past explains his psychotic urge to kill...
via: IMDBBut not to worry, you won't find any spoilers in this article!
Michael C. Hall starred along with some iconic faces in the series...Including Jennifer Carpenter, who played Dexter's potty-mouthed detective sister.
Each season focuses on a different killer that Dexter stalks and gets involved with...
via: GettyAnd John Lithgow's performance as the Trinity Killer in season 4 was simply superb.
The show ran for 8 seasons between 2006-2013...And with so many twists and turns along the way, fans were absolutely devastated with the ending of season 8.
Was this the final end of Dexter?Well, that's what we've all been thinking for the last 7 years!
But little did we know that ShowTime has had a little something up their sleeves for quite some time now...
via: IMDBBecause it has just been announced that a 10-part limited series of Dexter has been the green light for production!
Dexter fans are unbelievably excited...
And many are hoping to get the ending that "they deserve" following from season 8's disappointing finale.

Co-President of Entertainment at ShowTime Gary Levine said the show would never be revisited unless there was a brilliant idea...
via: IMDBSo clearly, someone has come up with an ingenious plot that will keep audiences guessing!
Michael C. Hall himself spoke of reigniting Dexter's character...
via: GettyIn an interview with the Daily Beast, the actor said, "Every time I'm asked about [another season of Dexter]. I say, 'Never say never'. The next thing I know there's an announcement on the internet saying, 'He's going to do it again'."
He felt the way the series ended didn't give fans "closure" and a lot of unanswered questions remained.
via: Getty"He seems to be in this self-imposed exile, he certainly didn't ride off into the sunset... It left a gnarly knot in some viewers' stomachs. I stand by how that 8th season ended."
We'll just have to wait and see what Dexter has in store for us...
