Michael C. Hall Talks Dexter Revival and Reveals He Visited Season 9 Set: "It's Real. It's Really Happening"

Michael C. Hall shared his excitement for his return as America's favorite serial killer, in an brand new interview with Entertainment Tonight.

Michael sits with Entertainment Tonight and Ash Crossan and spills info about the upcoming highly anticipated Dexter Revival, and opens up about why now, was the right time for the show to return:

"I've been approached, unofficially, many times in the streets by people who have ideas. But... I think there have been probably, before this, three legitimate ideas or concepts of what we might do and none of them felt right." 

Read the full interview below!

"This one, a lot of it has to do with time passed," he says. "This is going to happen in real time, as if as much time has passed since the finale happened. And yeah, we kind of just got the creative band back together again. Clyde Phillips is back, who was the showrunner for the first four seasons, running the show. And Marcos Siega, who is one of the directors. He's like, 'We're gonna shoot it like a long, 10-hour movie. It was a combination of the scripts and the timing. I always thought maybe the time will reveal itself when it's the right time to do it and it did. And I'm excited. I was just visiting the sets the other day and it's real. It's really happening."

"From a story standpoint [and] from a character standpoint, it made sense to me what he did. But I certainly can appreciate why it left a majority of the viewers feeling left out in the cold or gypped or frustrated because he literally didn't say anything at the end," Hall acknowledges. "He had been talking to us the whole time and he just stared at the camera and it was over. He put his sister in the ocean. What the hell was that?" 

Michael also promises that season 9 will right some wrongs: "The appetite for the reboot is a way facilitated by the fact that it was a less than satisfying ending for people," Hall says. "I want to find out what happened to the guy just as much as everybody else."

If there is one thing Michael hopes the Dexter Revival addresses, it's this: "I don't know if they're going to go for it, but I'm angling for him to be running his own pizza restaurant," Hall quips, "just because, you know, I don't need to explain why that would be awesome." LOL.

Filming officially begins next month!
