[Throwback] Remembering Clyde Phillips' Original Ending For Dexter Back In 2013

With Dexter finally returning next year, it's a great opportunity to remember Executive Producer Clyde Phillips' initial idea for the series finale... if he still remained involved with Dexter back in the early 10s.



So... as you may know, Clyde Phillips was the main showrunner of Dexter in the first 4 seasons. Aka, the seasons that are the most popular among the fans. After season 4 he decided to leave the show, in order to "spend more time with his family". 

After the final episode of Dexter back in 2013, he actually revealed on E! Online his idea for the series finale if he was still running the show. Most of the fans already know what we're talking about as we posted about it 7 years ago, days after the ending.

Warning! Clyde Phillips is back on the show for the Dexter Revival which means that... the upcoming 'second finale' of Dexter may resemble to the one he revealed seven years ago. Or maybe not just because all these years he actually had more time to think for a better script for the ending. 

Possible spoilers ahead!

Dexter EP Clyde Phillips Spills New Info on Season 9: "It's an Opportunity To Make Things Right"

Exec. Producer Clyde Phillips who returns to write Dexter after his departure from the show after the fourth season, spills some new information on the upcoming revival.
 

Here's what EP Clyde Phillips said on The Hollywood Reporter's "TV's Top 5" Podcast about Dexter's return. Possible spoilers ahead!

"We basically do get to start from scratch -- we want this to not be Dexter Season 9."

"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."

"This is an opportunity to make that right," Phillips said. "But that’s not why we’re doing it." 

"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."
