Despite the contentious nature of the series finale, Showtime had expressed interest in revisiting Dexter.at some point in the future, with network president David Nevins saying in January 2014:
“We continue to talk about it. If we were to do it, we have to have a very good reason to do it. It has to feel like it’s a new show. I’m not interested in doing it if it’s just a continuation. If we were to do it, I would only do it with Michael.”
While there are no immediate plans to revive Dexter, the temptation to bring the series back from a financial perspective is unlikely to fade.
