Over the Fourth of July holiday, Sacha Baron Cohen tweeted out a video teasing a mysterious new project that might have something to do with Donald Trump. Today, new details have emerged regarding the comedian and actor’s latest endeavor, which appears to be a prank interview series similar to Da Ali G Show for Showtime.
The possibility of a Dexter revival has been whispered for some time, and it might be surprisingly easy to get star Michael C. Hall onboard. The erstwhile Bay Harbor Butcher says enough time has passed that he’s willing to return, and all it will take is a solid pitch.
Dexter could easily join TV’s ongoing revival fad, but Showtime won’t return to Miami just yet. In spite of new rumors and a poster making the rounds, Showtime confirms Dexter hasn’t given up the lumberjack life just yet.
It’s hard to believe we’re already thirteen weeks into Showtime’s expansive Twin Peaks revival; partly because you’d be hard-pressed to follow any one linear story.

To that end, Kyle MacLachlan himself calls some of the extended Dougie scenes “challenging,” promising that “everything will come back together and make sense.”
