DEXTER: Luna Lauren Velez Shares Her Thoughts On The Revival And Possibly Returning As LaGuerta (Exclusive)

Dexter star Luna Lauren Velez talks to us about Showtime's upcoming revival, while also sharing her thoughts on the final season & how she'd like to see María LaGuerta return to haunt the serial killer...

Dexter ended in 2013, and to say fans of the series were disappointed with the finale would be an understatement. The show clearly wasn't at its best during those final couple of years, anyway, but search for any ranking of the all-time worst TV finales, and we're confident you'll come across a picture of Michael C. Hall dressed as a lumberjack! 

Last year, we learned that a 10-episode limited series is heading our way which it's hoped will redeem the show and provide a vastly more satisfying ending for the serial killer. 

Luna Lauren Velez played María LaGuerta in Dexter, and came close to putting the blood spatter analyst behind bars before being murdered by his sister, Deb. When we caught up with the actress to discuss her role in new action movie Rogue Hostage, we asked for her thoughts on the revival and what she hopes to see from the series when it returns.

"I think the last season left a lot of people hungry for a better resolution," Velez admitted. "It’s great that they’re bringing it back. People really want to see something that feels more satisfying for them in terms of what becomes of Dexter. I’m not sure everyone’s okay with the serial killer just getting away with it. I have no idea what happens, but I hope it will be fulfilling [Laughs]. That’s all I can say."

When we suggested it would be fun to see Dexter haunted by LaGuerta, she added: "I need to see all of his foes come back. It’s a very interesting thing to me that all the women in the show were killed. Rita, Maria, Debs...all the women died. I think they need to come back and ask him some questions. Wouldn’t that be awesome?"

It would indeed. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like any original cast members outside of Hall will return for this new season, and as LaGuerta's story reached its end in that penultimate batch of episodes, the chances of Velez getting the opportunity to reprise the role are slim. We'd definitely be on board with the idea of her and other former cast members coming back to haunt Dexter, though!
