The series also features Debra Morgan (Jennifer Carpenter) and Maria LaGuerta (Lauren Velez) as friends and allies of Dexter. The original series ended after eight seasons in 2013, with Dexter having fled his old life for Oregon.
The revival series will consist of 10 episodes set in a new location to the Dexter universe: Iron Lake, New York, a fictional town.
