Anytime someone asks, “What’s a popular show that had a disappointing ending?”, Dexter seems to always be at the top of the list. People really enjoyed the first few seasons of the darkly comedic serial killer series, but its final few seasons really went off the rails, and the finale itself – which saw Dexter sporting a terrible fake beard and living as a lumberjack – satisfied absolutely no one. But now there’s a chance to get things right as the show returns for a revival season which can double as season 9 and serve as a new finale. And now we have our first footage from the new season, although this doesn’t appear to be actual footage from an episode but rather something shot specifically for a teaser. Watch the Dexter season 9 teaser below.

I can’t imagine anyone was craving more Dexter right now, but I guess I’m dead wrong because Showtime is bringing the series back! A Dexter reboot will take the form of a new 10-episode limited series that will bring back Michael C. Hall as the serial killer who learned to harness his murderous impulses by targeting criminals. The show started off rather strong and then went downhill incredibly fast, ending with a finale that slapped a terrible fake beard on Hall and made pretty much everyone unhappy. Perhaps this is Showtime’s chance to right a wrong.

After getting used to hearing actor Michael C. Hall speak with such a distinctly low voice as a serial killer who hunts serial killers on Showtime’s Dexter, it’s slightly jarring to hear him try on an English accent in Safe, a new crime series for Netflix. The streaming service has just unveiled a first-look trailer for the new show, which follows a man’s quest to find his missing daughter. Check out the Safe trailer below. Read More »
The Crown returns to Netflix for season 2 today, bringing with it a whole new era of scandal, romance, and royal intrigue. While it may not be the most action-packed shows to grace the streaming platform, it is one of the best: an old fashioned, admirably episodic costume drama with superb performances, intricate direction, and enough simmering, bottled-up righteous fury to keep you hooked from beginning to end (give or take an episode or two).

Afterschool director Antonio Campos follows up his unnervingly hypnotic film Simon Killer with Christine. Campo’s third feature premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, where it was praised as a brutal, intimate character study with a tremendous performance from Rebecca Hall (The Gift) as Christine Chubbuck, a reporter who committed suicide on the air in 1974. The independent drama, which co-stars Michael C. Hall (Cold in July) and Tracy Letts (Indignation), was sold to The Orchard, and they’re releasing it into theaters next month.
