Dexter is making a comeback (Picture: Showtime)
The Dexter reboot has confirmed that Dexter Morgan has assumed a brand new identity after faking his death in the season eight finale.
A brand new teaser clip ahead of the rebooted series has revealed that the elusive serial killer, portrayed by Michael C Hall, now goes by the name Jim Lindsay, a sales associate at Fred’s Fish & Game.
Die-hard fans reckon that this new cover is a nice little nod to the author of the Dexter books, Jeff Lindsay.
The show’s official account revealed the spoiler, with a clip of a work name badge alongside the new name, with Dexter Morgan crossed out.
Fans were living for the little snippet of what’s in store, with one writing: ‘I could not have needed this more today.. Can’t f*cking wait.’
Echoing a similar sentiment, another added: ‘Give me that trailer!!!! I’m so hyped!’
The new chapter of Dexter was announced in October, with Showtime behind the project.
Hall revealed earlier this year that he hopes the new season will make up for the divisive ‘unsatisfying’ finale.
Speaking about the decision to revive the show, he said: ‘It’s a conversation that’s been ongoing, and different possibilities have emerged over the years.
‘I think in this case, the story that’s being told is worth telling in a way that other proposals didn’t, and I think enough time has passed where it’s become intriguing in a way that it wasn’t before.’
He added to The Daily Beast: ‘And let’s be real: people found the way that show left things pretty unsatisfying, and there’s always been a hope that a story would emerge that would be worth telling.’
Last month, a teaser linked the season eight finale by putting Dexter back in the woods, where the killer tried to hide from authorities by being a lumberjack.
The clip saw a fire pit burning in a forest with an axe stuck in a wood stump and cutover to see Dexter looking out a cabin window, as the cameras zoom out with The Animals’ Please Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood, playing in the background.
