Showrunner Clyde Phillips told me TVLine last October that no dream sequences would have been included to explain past events.

“We’re not going to undo anything,” Phillips said. “We’re not going to betray the public and say,” Oops, that was all a dream. ” What happened in the first eight years happened in the first eight years. ‘

Hall, 50, told The Daily Beast earlier this year that the revival would calm some fans upset about how the show ended eight years ago.

“ People found the way that show left things pretty unsatisfying, and there has always been a hope that there would be a story that would be worth telling, ” he said. ‘I include myself in the group of people wondering,’ What the hell happened to that man? ”

He said his decision to return to the role was the byproduct of a “ conversation that’s been going on for years ” to bring the character back.

‘I think in this case the story being told is worth telling in a way that other proposals didn’t,’ he said, ‘and I think enough time has passed in which it has become intriguing in a way which it was not before. ‘

Announcing the reboot, Gary Levine, co-president of entertainment at Showtime, said the concept for the revival was brilliant.

“Dexter is such a special series, both for its millions of fans and for Showtime, as this groundbreaking show put our network on the map many years ago,” said Levine. We would only revisit this unique character if we could find a creative view that was truly worthy of the brilliant, original series.

“Well, I’m happy to report that Clyde Phillips and Michael C. Hall found it, and we can’t wait to shoot it and show it to the world!”
