With the serial killer drama Dexter set to make its return on Showtime for a limited series revival after eight years, there is yet more casting news on the latest season.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the upcoming limited series has cast Jamie Chung (Lovecraft Country) and Oscar Wahlberg (Manchester By the Sea) for recurring roles. Chung will play Molly, a famous true-crime podcaster from Los Angeles. While, Wahlberg will play Zach, the captain of the Iron Lake High School wrestling team. The outlet describes Zach as “a bit of a bully, but generally the go-to-guy to have a good time.”
Jamie Chung and Oscar Wahlberg will star alongside Michael C. Hall as Dexter Morgan with Clancy Brown as the primary villain Kurt Caldwell, the “unofficial mayor” of Iron Lake, as well as Julia Jones (The Mandalorian), Alano Miller (Sylvie’s Love), Johnny Sequoyah (Believe), Jack Alcott (The Good Lord Bird), and Michael Cyril Creighton (Spotlight).
Although there are currently no details on the plot of the revival series, we do know that Clyde Phillips is set to return as showrunner and executive producer with Marcos Siega, who previously directed nine episodes of the original series, set to return to executive produce and direct six of the 10-episodes in the limited series.
Michael C. Hall will also serve as executive producer alongside John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, Bill Carraro and Scott Reynolds. Production on the new Dexter season is set to start this month, with Showtime expecting to release the revival during the fall of 2021.
