Showtime just announced new information about its upcoming "Dexter" revival, which is set to begin filming in MA later this month.
Deadline reports that Julia Jones, Johnny Sequoyah, Alano Miller and Jack Alcott have all joined the upcoming Showtime series. There aren't many details just yet as to what will go down on the show, but one thing we do know is that Dexter has swapped Miami for a small upstate NY town called Iron Lake.
Production for the series is set to kick off in MA in February and if all goes well, should wrap in July so it looks like fans could expect the new series to hit screens as early as Autumn 2021.
Michael C. Hall will, of course, reprise his role as Dexter Morgan in the series. In the original series finale, which was widely panned by critics, Dexter fakes his own death and leaves Miami, beginning a new life working for a lumber company in Oregon. "If he's got your back, consider yourself blessed".
Jones is set to portray the role of Angela Bishop, who is the first Native American Chief of Police in her town in upstate NY while Sequoyah will play Bishop's brash and opinionated teen daughter named Audrey.
In October, Showtime announced that it had ordered a 10-episode Dexter limited series, with original EP Clyde Phillips back as showrunner. Miller will play Logan, an Iron Lake Police Department sergeant, and Alcott will play Randall, a teenager who has a "meaningful encounter" with Dexter.
As TVLine exclusively reported earlier this month, veteran character actor Clancy Brown (Carnivale and Billions) will play the revival's primary antagonist Kurt Caldwell, the unofficial mayor of Iron Lake.
