DEXTER More Casting News

DEXTER (Season 4)

There have been lots of casting news surrounding the upcoming season of DEXTER lately.

We recently found out that Julia Stiles would join the cast of Dexter in Season 5 and we now know that she will appear in ten episodes and play a mysterious young woman who forms a unique relationship with Dexter (Michael C. Hall) in the wake of Rita’s death.

We then found out that Shawn Hatosy would also guest star in the series, and we now know that he will play a complex character that forms a unique relationship with Dexter.

And now Maria Doyle Kennedy has also signed up to guest star in the fifth season as an Irish nanny hired to care for Dexter’s son Harrison, who is now motherless. As Dexter grapples with the reality of the death of his wife, her presence will help him deal with his feelings of loss and grief – emotions he’s never felt before.

And for the kicker, Julie Benz (who plays Rita) will also make a guest appearance in one episode, although it is unclear exactly what that will entail since her character died in the season 4 finale.

Season 5 of Dexter will premiere in the fall 2010.
