WEST BOYLSTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Good news for fans of the TV show Dexter; the popular Showtime series is being revived in Massachusetts, with some scenes being shot this week in central Massachusetts.
Eight years after its season finale, the cast and crew of Dexter were seen Tuesday and Wednesday in West Boylston shooting scenes for the upcoming 10-episode limited season of the show.
According to Jose, who lives in the neighborhood, it wasn't good news for everybody.
"Savage traffic, man," he said. "But it's Hollywood, right?"
Residents got a little taste of Los Angeles traffic on Tuesday when three miles-worth of Route 140 got shut down for filming.
On the plus side, they were within three miles of some celebrities.
"A celebrity?" Jose said. "Gee, I've been wanting to see one since '73!"
Another local resident, Scott, said he has big dreams of getting on the show.
"I hope he comes and gets me," Scott said of the lead character Dexter, who is a serial killer. "I'll fight back!"
Unfortunately for Scott, it's a long shot, since most of the film set is deep in the woods, and the entrances are currently being heavily guarded by Massachusetts State Troopers.
