In the series finale, Michael C. Hall‘s titular character faked his own death and went into exile in the middle of nowhere.
“We basically do get to start from scratch,” Clyde told THR. “We want this to not be Dexter season nine. Ten years, or however many years, have passed by the time this will air, and the show will reflect that time passage. So far as the ending of the show, this will have no resemblance to how the original finale was. It’s a great opportunity to write a second finale.”
Clyde acknowledged how fans, and even Michael, were not pleased with the finale, which aired back in September 2013.
“This is an opportunity to make that right,” he said. “But that’s not why we’re doing it.”
He added, “We’re not undoing anything. We’re not going to betray the audience and say, ‘Whoops, that was all a dream.’ What happened in the first eight years happened in the first eight years.”
