By this point, you presumably realize that Showtime’s “Dexter” is being unearthed and vivified. The series finished in 2013, a couple of seasons after it lost its enchantment, however it’s returning for a 10-episode ninth season in the fall.
Presently comes news that a couple of actors whose characters were killed off in the first series will return for the restoration. Jennifer Carpenter, who played Dexter’s sister (and, ew, conceivable heartfelt interest), is returning. Her Deb was killed in the series finale, yet she will return in flashbacks and dream sequences. Moreover John Lithgow, who played the Trinity Killer in the fourth season. Lithgow is returning, even while Trinity ended up on Dexter’s kill table (before Dexter found that he’d killed Rita).
From the previews released by Showtime, we realize that Dexter is currently in upstate New York living under an expected name — in one clasp, it gives off an impression of being Jim Lindsay — while those in Miami think he passed on when his boat upset in a tropical storm. Will his “Dark Passenger” return? In a clasp, we see him watching out of a window where we see the impression of what seems, by all accounts, to be a body shrouded in plastic behind him.
The newbies to the show incorporate Clancy Brown, who will be the season’s big villain, as well as Julia Jones as the town’s chief of police. Oscar Wahlberg (indeed, Mark and Donnie are his uncles) will play the captain of the local wrestling team, and Jamie Chung will play a true-crime podcaster.
