Jennifer Carpenter set to return for `Dexter` revival

Jennifer Carpenter, who played Debra Morgan on Dexter, will return for Showtime’s reboot of the crime drama mystery television series.

Carpenter essayed the role of the foster sister of Michael C Hall’s Dexter and a police officer in the Miami Police Department, for all eight seasons of the original show.

The character was famously killed off in the 2013 series finale.

Sources confirmed that Carpenter will return from the dead as will John Lithgow, who played Arthur Mitchell aka the Trinity Killer in the new limited series. Showtime declined to comment on her casting.

Both Carpenter and Lithgow are expected to appear in flashback scenes as the Dexter update has no plans of rewriting the show’s original course.

It is unclear if any other Dexter favourites whose characters were killed off will also return.

The new show will see Hall return as the titular character Dexter Morgan, a conflicted blood-spatter expert for the Miami Police Department who moonlighted as a serial killer.

The revival is set 10 years after Dexter went missing in the eye of Hurricane Laura. It sees the protagonist now living under an assumed name in Iron Lake, a world away from Miami.
