Michael C. Hall May Not Be Ready To Leave 'Dexter' Behind Just Yet & We Can't Blame Him
On Sept. 22, 2013, after eight tumultuous seasons, the public bid farewell to their favorite serial killer, Dexter Morgan. Considering he spent seven years of his life playing such a complex and emotionally taxing character, you would think that Michael C. Hall would grow tried of all the Saran wrap and blood splatter, but as he explained at Sundance, if it were done in the right way at the right time, he would consider it.
Hall clarifies, discerning it would have to be the near-perfect scenario for a return,"I can't even wrap my mind around that. And it's all just theoretical until there is some sort of script reflecting somebody's idea of where it could possibly go. But it's hard for me to imagine what that would be." All of this Dexterrection talk began when the series creators were throwing around the idea of a Dexter spin off, and if the spin off were to occur, Dexter would need to be a part of it.
Hall's reluctance to leave his long time character behind is not all too shocking. During the seven years he spent working on the show, he not only grew attached to the character he portrayed, but also to the cast. He married his on-screen step sister, Deb Morgan, played by actress Jennifer Carpenter, in December of 2008. The couple later divorced in 2011 but still remain close friends. In another life altering event, Hall was also diagnosed with a form of Hodgkin's Lymphoma during his time as Dexter and is now in remission.
We know if a spin off were to ever occur that Hall would bring his all into the reprisal of Dexter, as he holds the role dear to his heart.
