The possibility of a Dexter revival has been whispered for some time, and it might be surprisingly easy to get star Michael C. Hall onboard. The erstwhile Bay Harbor Butcher says enough time has passed that he’s willing to return, and all it will take is a solid pitch.
Dexter could easily join TV’s ongoing revival fad, but Showtime won’t return to Miami just yet. In spite of new rumors and a poster making the rounds, Showtime confirms Dexter hasn’t given up the lumberjack life just yet.
Jim Carrey may not actually appear in Showtime comedy I’m Dying Up Here, but the funnyman producer will nevertheless step out from behind the camera. Carrey will topline his own Showtime comedy, reuniting with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director Michel Gondry to do it.
It’s hard to believe we’re already thirteen weeks into Showtime’s expansive Twin Peaks revival; partly because you’d be hard-pressed to follow any one linear story. We might not have much more closure after the Labor Day finale either, as Showtime doesn’t believe it’s likely to order another round of cherry pie.
Twin Peaks isn’t the only new Showtime series on the block. Ahead of its June 4 premiere, the new Jim Carrey-produced stand-up dramedy I’m Dying Up Here invites you to an early showcase of its premiere episode, available to stream right now.
Close to thirty years will have passed when Twin Peaks resurrects on Showtime, to say nothing of how broadcast and cable standards have changed. Still, don’t expect the 2017 revival to undergo any graphic overhaul, as Showtime bosses reveal David Lynch is “taking advantage of cable freedoms,” but “David’s pretty clean.”
It was this very day, twenty-eight years gone, that Agent Dale Cooper first entered the town of Twin Peaks to investigate the murder of Laura Palmer. As such, Showtime would very much like to remind us of that fact in time for its May revival, spotlighting the pair in two new posters.
Twin Peaks creator David Lynch proved predictably David Lynch with his refusal to divulge details of Showtime’s 18-episode revival, though the eccentric creator at least offered that controversial prequel Fire Walk With Me would serve as important prelude. As such, Showtime will re-run the film in March, affording ample time for another catchup before our May return to the Black Lodge.
