Dexter Lost Its Way Long Before Original Series Finale, Says Showrunner

Clyde Phillips is the showrunner for Dexter. He says the original series was “lost its way” before the series finale aired. Dexter was based on a series by Jeff Lindsay. It aired on Showtime for eight seasons, from 2006 to 2013. Dexter Morgan is a forensic technie working for the Miami Metro Police Department. He moonlights as an vigilante serial killer in order to find murderers who escape punishment. Michael C. Hall starred in the title role. Jennifer Carpenter, James Remar and David Zayas were also part of the series. Erik King and Julie Benz were also included.
Dexter received mostly positive reviews throughout its run, with the four first seasons receiving widespread acclaim. Dexter, a crime drama series, was a huge hit on Showtime. The season 8 finale of Dexter was also the most watched episode in Showtime’s history. The show received less favorable reception in the second half of its run, particularly for season 8. In fact, many publications and fans referred to the finale as the worst ever.

Phillips was the showrunner of Dexter’s original four seasons. He spoke out to Variety about his thoughts. Phillips stated that the series had “lost its way” over the last few seasons and that it didn’t look far enough into the future. Phillips felt that the show had lost the compelling qualities that made Phillips’ protagonist so compelling and alienated the audience. Phillips’ comments are below.

“I believe the show lost its way in the last few years of its original form.” It could only see as far into the future, as the headlights of a car’s headlights, and it had broken the agreement with the audience that everything Dexter does must be code-worthy.

Many critics have cited Dexter season 6 as the reason for the show’s gradual decline. It received a lower-than-average rating of 40% from Rotten Tomatoes. Many viewers felt uncomfortable with the story of a ritualistic serial murderer as the main antagonist and the subplot in which Debra harbors romantic feelings for Dexter. The story didn’t end there. Season 8’s series finale saw Dexter pretend his death and end-up working as a lumberjack on Oregon’s coast in the final minutes of the episode. This upset both fans and critics and may have devalued the series overall.

The announcement of Dexter: New Blood, a revival series, a year ago generated a lot of excitement and optimism among the fans. New Blood will be viewed by many viewers as an opportunity to restore the show’s status as one of the most prestigious series on television. Phillips will be returning to the role of showrunner, so it is very likely that Dexter, New Blood will live up to its promise and reach the same highs as the beloved first four seasons.

Here’s a list of all the people Dexter Morgan killed over the eight seasons of Dexter. Dexter is the story of Dexter Morgan, a vigilante serial killer who is also a blood-spatter investigator for the Miami Metro Police Department. Dexter spends most of his eight seasons hiding his identity as a serial killer and his self-described “dark passenger” killing compulsion.

Dexter is unique in that he’s not a serial killer who kills whenever he wants, without regard for his victim’s innocence. Harry Morgan, Dexter’s policeman father, understood that Dexter was prone to killing instincts from a young age. He decided to make use of his compulsions for good and gave Dexter a code to only kill deserving killers who had evaded the justice process. Dexter would have had a higher number of kills if he hadn’t been given a guideline for avoiding being caught and a code to only murder criminals.

45 murders Dexter is responsible for are confirmed by the number of blood slide boxes he had. Dexter must start a new box after his first box of blood slides is discovered by the FBI in Dexter season 2 Bay Harbor Butcher cases. It is pinched on James Doakes. Dexter’s second blood slide box contains 43 additional people. This brings the total number of confirmed kills to 88. The flashbacks Dexter has with Harry Morgan show that Dexter had killed at least seven people before he began keeping their blood slides for trophies. Dexter also confirmed 88 kills from his boxes. There are 50 additional confirmed kills where Dexter didn’t take their blood or lost their slides.

Dexter Morgan is unlikely to be able to give a precise count of the number of victims he has killed. Dexter Morgan started killing at 20 years of age, and has been killing for over 30 years. This count does not include what Dexter confirmed during its first eight seasons. It is more likely that the number has risen in the eight-year gap between the original series finale, and the exciting reboot that will be Dexter’s next season. Dexter: New Blood also suggests that Dexter will be returning to murder in his new hometown, which means there will certainly be more names on his kill list.
