With the NBC series Chuck in her past, fans of Australian hottie Yvonne Strahovski may have been wondering what the actress might do next, and thankfully, it’s something a little more edgy and dark. The seventh season of Dexter is shaping up quite nicely with Ray Stevenson and Jason Gedrick joining the cast, and now Strahovski has just landed a mutli-episode arc on the series as well which will have her working with everyone’s favorite killer of serial killers himself. Details on her character after the jump.
In the seventh season, TV Line says Miami Metro finds itself opening some old cases, and the department brings in Hannah McKay to help out. But there’s something about the strong, independent woman’s past that still haunts her, and Dexter (Michael C. Hall) thinks there’s more to her than she lets on. It’s hard to say whether or not there might be a love interest here too, especially (spoiler alert!) in the wake of the strange incestuous storyline between Dexter and his sister Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) which cropped up right before she saw her brother taking care of the Doomsday killer.
As of now, the only other details we know have Stevenson playing a senior member of a dangerous crime ring from Eastern Europe who comes to Miami to learn who killed one of his associates, Gedrick as the manager of a strip club, and Katia Winter as a Russian stripper under his employ. With only two season left, it’s likely we’ll see the groundwork laid for the eighth and final season as well, so fans should be getting ready to say farewell to Dexter Morgan.
