Could this be real?! Is ‘Dexter’ getting revived by Showtime? Well, ever since the show’s Twitter account posted a mysterious tweet on Thanksgiving, rumors about the series getting the reboot treatment have been running rampant. See it here!
Dexter may be coming back for more blood, as Showtime mulls a revival with series star Michael C. Hall. Showtime head David Nevins has actually expressed an interest in reviving the fan-favorite series, one in which is “in need of redemption,” according to Inquisitr.com, but it wasn’t until a mysterious tweet was posted on Thanksgiving, by the series’ Twitter account, that revival rumors started heating up.
The tweet, which you can see below, hints that Dexter’s knife has been “freshly sharpened.” And it’s interesting for two reasons — obviously, the words alone hint at a possible revival, but most of the account’s tweets are usually retweets from the Dexter game Twitter account, or advertisements for their Dexter-branded merchandise, according to Inquisitr.com. So when the tweet was posted, fans immediately started wondering if there’s a Dexter reboot in the works.

The good news is that a Dexter revival has certainly been considered by Showtime, and quite seriously. ScreenCrush reports that David Nevins, the head of Showtime, recently spoke at the TCA press tour panel, where he talked about the idea of resurrecting old series, including Dexter.
“Dexter is the one show that I would think about [continuing]. It’s a question of when the timing is right. If there’s a willingness to do it, I would certainly listen. Certainly I’d look at Dexter,” he said.
Dexter aired on Showtime for 8 seasons, between 2006 and 2013, and it remains as one of the network’s most popular series to date.
