Only in 2014 would a TV star be apologizing for his show’s series finale more than eight months after it initially aired.

Michael C. Hall spoke to “The Daily Beast” about his latest killer role, taking a minute to talk about his most iconic one – the titular role on Showtime’s “Dexter.”

Hall admitted that the finale was “not so savory” and said he does not remember even watching it.

“I think the show had lost a certain amount of torque,” he told the “Daily Beast.” “Just inherently because of how long we’d done it, because of the storytelling capital we’d spent, because our writers may have been gassed. Maybe some people wanted a more satisfying – maybe they wanted a happy ending for him, either a happy or a more definitive sense of closure.”

Still, not unlike Vic Mackey in “The Shield,” Hall says Dexter subjected himself to a different kind of imprisonment.

The actor, however, is now freed up to do more film work, including his next role, playing a suburban man who “accidentally kills someone” in “Cold in July.”
