‘Dexter’ Revival Adds John Lithgow


The upcoming Dexter revival has added another cast member, and he’s one viewers are quite familiar with — John Lithgow aka the Trinity Killer. Deadline was first to report.

Lithgow is no stranger to Dexter, having portrayed Arthur Mitchell/the Trinity Killer in season 4 as the main baddie. By the end of the season, Dexter took care of Trinity once and… maybe not for all. Though details are being kept tightly under wraps, according to Deadline, showrunner Clyde Phillips has confirmed that Arthur Mitchell will return in a way that fits into the larger universe of the show.

The revival is set to be a 10-episode limited run. It will see the return of Dexter Morgan (now under the persona Jim Lindsay), who is now living in a town called Iron Lake in upstate New York.

Filming is currently underway, and the new season is scheduled to premiere on Showtime in Fall 2021. Find all our coverage on the revival here, and stay tuned for more details. Watch the original eight seasons now on Amazon Prime Video and Showtime.
