Dexter star Michael C Hall has slammed the hit show for having an “infuriating” ending.
But the American actor has stressed that he, his fellow actors and producers are aiming to “make things rights” with a 10-episode limited series set to air later this year.
The hit American crime drama ran for eight seasons between 2006-2013 and is based on forensic scientist Dexter Morgan’s (played by Michael) double life as a vigilante serial killer.
Michael, 50, won a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award for his role in Dexter.

However, despite incredible success, the US TV star was far from happy with the show’s ending.
Many fans believed Dexter should be held accountable for his crimes or meet a grisly death, but instead Michael’s character started a new life as a lumberjack in Oregon.
"The show ended in a way that was infuriating,” admitted Michael.
And speaking to Phil Williams on Times Radio, Michael was candid enough to admit that the initial ending of the show was “mystifying” for people.

“I think the show ended in a way that was pretty mystifying at best if not infuriating for people,” said Michael.
“But that at least set the stage for us to return and answer more definitively what the hell happened to this guy.
"I totally support what happened, the choice he makes at the end, but as far as the execution goes, we were all running on vapour at that point, so I get it."

The acclaimed actor also revealed when the hotly anticipated revival of the hit series will premiere on US television.
"We have about five weeks to go, I think the whole shoot would have taken five months,” he teased.
“It's basically like we're filming it as a 10-hour movie. It will be ten episodes, premiering at least in the States on Showtime on November 7.

"We don't pick up the day after we left him at the end of the series proper, we pick him up as if as much time has passed for him as has passed for the rest of us.
"It's been wild – he's been relocated from Miami to a tiny town in upstate New York, so the clothes are heavier and the colours are more subdued.
“That helps to remind me that things have changed – or I could just look in the mirror to realise that time has passed!”

Michael, who also starred in HBO hit Six Feet Under, added: "It's not an experience I've had, nor one I imagine I will have again, to revisit something I spent so much time with after so much time away — as much time away as I spent doing it.”
When asked if there was scope to go beyond this limited series revival, he said: "I'm going to say… maybe."
