A Dexter Spinoff is Probably Likely but How Will They Pull It Off?

If Dexter was to ever get a spinoff, and it’s still likely enough that it could happen, Showtime would need to step aside just a bit. They’d still be in control, but allowing the writers to have the kind of license they need to really get what people want out of the show would be crucial in order to make things run a bit smoother than they did for the finale. People were absolutely incensed at how the finale turned out and are aching for a spinoff that can possibly get them over the blues that were caused by what some call a travesty. But the trick of this is that Michael C. Hall needs to come back for a spinoff, and at this moment he’s stated that he doesn’t want to. Well, to be more exact he believes it’s not time for a reboot or anything else since he can’t see himself playing the iconic role at the moment.

The best news is that despite what people were expecting, Dexter isn’t dead. This was of course one of the things that had people up in arms since a well-deserved death would have seemed almost poetic, a fitting end to a show that had drawn so many people in and seen the main character change so much. But given that he’s alive and presumably still kicking around somewhere, Dexter could be revisited at a later time should Hall decide that it’s time to get back into the swing of it. The only issue of course is that it might take some time to really allow the fans to recover from the somewhat lackluster finale and build some faith that the show might return to its original allure. While the memories of some people are long, the need for their favorite shows could outweigh the irritation and frustration that was brought to a head by one episode. If a Dexter spinoff was to come around then the timing would need to be right and this time it would have to be scheduled as far away from the finale of another favorite show as possible. Coming just a week after the finale of Breaking Bad didn’t do Dexter any favors since having to deal with one show ending and then another in two weeks’ time is not an easy prospect for many people.

But having to watch two shows end and one of them be so humdrum that it seemed to betray the entire series and the buildup that had been coming seems even worse than not being able to see them any longer. It’d be almost like reading an epic story for so long and then realizing the ending came when you weren’t looking, or rather, was so mundane that it simply paled in comparison to everything that had come before. Endings don’t have to be grand or epic in any way, but they do need to be memorable if this is the last time that people are going to be seeing their favorite characters. If a spinoff is to happen then the writers need to be given the freedom to come up with something that will truly please the fans, not the money-hungry execs at Showtime.

The story is more important than the need to make money off of it.
