Dexter was notorious for its production design and the humid, sweaty sexiness that came with it. The backdrop of Florida and its swamps were the Dark Passenger’s hunting grounds. In the latest photos from Showtime’s upcoming Dexter Revival with its 9th season, we are getting a look at some significantly colder backdrops. Frozen tundras, are presented in the place of the trademark and very warm Florida.
Of course, when we last saw Dexter Morgan he had gone into self exile to escape his Dark Passenger. To add insult to the injury that the finale of Dexter was pretty terrible, we also had to deal with the fact that the last time we were going to see him was with terrible facial hair. In the first new photos of Dexter himself, we see him clean shaven and looking good in signature Henley shirt. All in all Dexter looks great.
Michael C. Hall himself was upset with the way the series ended, and who could blame him. “Let’s be real: people found the way that show left things pretty unsatisfying, and there’s always been a hope that a story would emerge that would be worth telling, I include myself in the group of people that wondered, ‘What the hell happened to that guy?’ So, I’m excited to step back into it. I’ve never had that experience of playing a character this many years on.” Hall said.
At the moment there are 10-new episodes planned, but Hall is already hinting at the very real possibility that this might just be the beginning of our rekindled relationship with Dexter.

Sanford Bookstaver of Jericho fame is directing the first episode of Dexter’s Revival. He has taken to Instagram to share some photos from the first episode and with them we see that freezing backdrop mentioned above. One shot from Marcos Siega state that the scenes shared are indeed from Massachusetts. To add a little more candy to the tastiness going on here, Siega listed the location as a fictional place called “Iron Lake.” Head over to Siega and Bookstaver’s Instagram’s to check out more behind the scenes photos.
Dexter’s Revival is coming back in hopes of ending a really great show on a high a better note. If you recall, Dexter season 4 was easily the best of all Dexter seasons. It was the one that featured Arthur Mitchell (Jon Lithgow) as the Trinity Killer. The dream is that the series could go out on that sort of note. The team over there needs to bring back the A-team that made up that of season 4 and go to work.
Dexter is in the midst of production and looks to be done in or around July.
