TV: “Dexter” Suspicious Of Newly Cast Yvonne Strahovski

“Chuck” and The Canyon star Yvonne Strahovski (pictured) has found her next gig and it’s a killer.

According to THR, the actress has been tapped for a multiepisode arc on Showtime’s “Dexter,” the network announced Tuesday.

She’ll play Hannah McKay, a strong, independent woman with a past that she’s struggled to put behind her on the Michael C. Hall-Jennifer Carpenter serial killer drama. As Miami Metro reopens old cases, the department turns to her for assistance as Hall’s Dexter Morgan begins to wonder if there’s more to Hannah than what she reveals.

Katia Winter will play a Russian stripper who works at a Miami club and joins Season 7 newbies Jason Gedrick — who will play the manger of the same Miami strip club — and Ray Stevenson, who has been cast as the leader of a Russian organized crime syndicate.

Previous A-list guest stars with season-long arcs have included Jimmy Smits, John Lithgow (who took home the Emmy for his turn) and Julia Stiles.

Showtime renewed “Dexter” for two additional seasons, which will likely bring the serial-killer drama to its end.

“Dexter” returns Sunday, Sept. 30 at 9 p.m. on Showtime.
