Showtime has revealed the new identity that Dexter Morgan will be living under in the upcoming Dexter revival.
When Dexter originally ended, the final moments of the series finale saw Dexter fake his death in his grief over the death of his sister Debra and living secretly in a rural town as a logger, giving up a life with his son and girlfriend Hannah McKay.
The revival will take place 10 years after the series finale as sees Dexter as an employee of a fishing store as ‘Jim Lindsay’, a reference to Dexter author Jeff Lindsay. Linsday wrote Darkly Dreaming Dexter in 2005, which the first season of Showtime’s series is largely based off. Linsday would write seven more novels in his Dexter series, but the television show took its own course after the first season with the story.
