The serial killer drama was picked up for two more seasons last month, with season eight thought to be its last.
Hall said that while he is not averse to television work in the future, he wants to dedicate the next phase in his career to pursuing roles entirely different from the one he played on Dexter.
"I couldn't have really imagined the past ten years, and I would like to believe that the next ten years for me have things in store that I couldn't quite imagine right now," he explained in an interview with Parade.
"I would love to return to the stage. I'd love to do film. Eventually, I would like to do another television series, but it's not really at the top of my list after the past two. But I don't know. I'd love to mix things up and take jobs that have a foreseeable beginning, middle and end as opposed to these open-ended characters and people surrounded by dead bodies."
Hall was recently nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award in the 'Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series' category for his work on Dexter.
