The Second 'Dexter' Trailer Is Here And Even Creepier Than The First

Taylor Sakellis

This is an exciting time for fans of the hit series Dexter as the show is essentially returning from the dead for a 9th season miniseries! As fans of the popular series most definitely remember, the show ended on a controversial note with Michael C. Hall faking his own death and sending his son and lover off to live in Argentina.

Now, fans are getting closer to answers with the newly released second teaser trailer!

It's hard to believe it's been almost eight years since Dexter went off air.

What better time to bring back a series than amidst a global pandemic?! That is one way to ensure people smile this year!

You know who else thinks now is the right time for a Dexter reboot? Michael C. Hall!

"I've been approached, unofficially, many times in the streets by people who have ideas," Michael joked to ET.

"But... I think there have been probably, before this, three legitimate ideas or concepts of what we might do and none of them felt right."

"This one, a lot of it has to do with time passed," he continued.

"This is going to happen in real-time, as if as much time has passed since the finale happened. And yeah, we kind of just got the creative band back together again."

"Clyde Phillips is back, who was the showrunner for the first four seasons, running the show. And Marcos Siega, who is one of the directors. He's like, 'We're gonna shoot it like a long, 10-hour movie.'"

"It was a combination of the scripts and the timing. I always thought maybe the time will reveal itself when it's the right time to do it and it did."

"And I'm excited," he added. "And I was just visiting the sets the other day and it's real. It's really happening."

Michael went on to acknowledge why fans were confused by the series finale.

"From a story standpoint [and] from a character standpoint, it made sense to me what he did," he explained.

"But I certainly can appreciate why it left a majority of the viewers feeling left out in the cold or gypped or frustrated because he literally didn't say anything at the end."

He went on to say there is no better time for a reboot.

"The appetite for the reboot is a way facilitated by the fact that it was a less than satisfying ending for people."

Last week, fans were delighted with the show's first teaser trailer.

The brief video showed a single shot of an ax in a tree stump, with a fire burning behind a stone wall.It includes a voiceover by Dexter himself, who says "There really is nothing like getting back to nature," before taking a pause.

"My nature."
