Why in the world did Dexter end?
When Dexter came to an end after 7 years in September 2013, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to their favorite sitcom characters. And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Dexter reunion disappoint people?
Dexter aired from 2006-2013 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules.
Still hoping for a Dexter movie?
In a recent interview, Billy Brown (who played Detective Mike Anderson between 2011 and 2012) said he can't imagine a Dexter reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Edward James Olmos (who played Professor James Gellar in 2011) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Dexter movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Dexter film, Michael C. Hall stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Dexter reboot?
Recasting Dexter for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a Dexter reunion, a Dexter movie, or a Dexter reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
