Dexter is getting even darker and I am getting even more excited.
So, Dexter Revival will be darker than the original version of it. If I am being honest I am in love with that idea. Jamie Chung, who is a new addition to the series talked about it in an interview. She stated ” The original series happened over 10 years ago, so there’s certainly a different vibe of the way the actual show is shot in terms of the aesthetic. I do think it’s a little darker.”
Apparently, the darker theme will be spread out for the whole of the show and not just the tone. So, we might see a more cold-blooded psycho serial killer that will haunt you for real. Chung also revealed that the show will be set up in New York. She also stated that there will be lots of new fresh faces in the show.
I don’t know what can be possibly darker than the Dexter we got. But I want it more than anything. It has been 10 years and now I can’t wait for it to come.
Dexter Revival Plot
The ninth season will continue right from where season 8 ended. Meaning it will feature Dexter hiding in the woods. But it is not like the time hasn’t passed in the Dexter timeline. A decade has been passed since Dexter went into hiding, so we might also see some of the flashbacks of what happened with Dexter in those 10 years. It will serve as a second finale to right the original ending that was bad.
I am happy that we are getting another season of Dexter because I was not satisfied with how the last season ended. We saw Dexter going up north, broods for a bit, get back to his old ways – eventually is drawn back to the family. The ending wasn’t that bad, but it didn’t felt like an ending. There was nothing “finalizing” about the finale. He didn’t die, he didn’t get arrested. He went into hiding and that was it. It felt like a deliberate setup to continue the story, later on, maybe a movie was in plans. But, now we are getting it and I can’t be more excited about it.
Dexter Revival Release Date
The show will come out in 2021 only. The exact date is yet to be revealed. Maybe they will announce it with the official trailer release. We will update you as soon as something is announced. The ninth season will consist of 10 episodes, making it shorter than all the other seasons. It will probably have weekly releases like all the other seasons.
