Deadline has announced that Showtime’s upcoming Dexter revival has added four new cast members. Joining the limited series is Julia Jones (The Mandalorian), Jack Alcott (The Good Lord Bird), Alano Miller (Sylvie’s Love), and Johnny Sequoyah (Believe). Based on the character descriptions, which you can read below, it’s safe to say the revival (or at least part of it) will be set in upstate New York.
Jones will play Angela Bishop, who’s the first Native American Chief of Police in her town. Her daughter, Audrey Bishop, will be played by Sequoyah. Audrey is a “brash and opinionated” teen. Alcott will take on the role of Randall, someone who will have a meaningful encounter with Dexter. Finally, Miller will play Logan, who is the assistant wrestling coach for the local high school and a sergeant for the Iron Lake Police.
The four join Michael C. Hall and the previously announced Clancy Brown. Deadline also revealed that production for the show will begin sometime next month. The 10-episode season is scheduled to release in Fall 2021 on Showtime.
Dexter originally ran for eight seasons from 2006-2013. It follows Dexter Morgan (Hall), a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Metro Homicide Department who masquerades as a serial killer with a moral compass — he only kills bad guys. You can watch the original eight seasons of Dexter now on Amazon Prime Video.
