According to Entertainment Weekly John Lithgow is set to make an appearance in the Dexter revival coming from Showtime this fall.
Awarded his fifth Emmy for the role as the “Trinity Killer” in the fourth season of the killer series’ original run, Lithgow’s character was soundly bumped off by Dexter Morgan himself in season-finale episode “The Getaway” back in late 2009.
Which begs the question: How will Lithgow’s Arthur Mitchell will return?
Details are being kept under wraps – Lithgow is expected to only film for about a day or so on the L.A.-set production.
“Set 10 years after Dexter Morgan went missing in the eye of Hurricane Laura, the revival sees the character now living under an assumed name in a world away from Miami.”
Michael C. Hall is joined by Julia Jones, Alano Miller, Johnny Sequoyah, Jack Alcott and Clancy Brown in the 10-episode limited series.
The original series, which ran from 2008-13 and remains one of Showtime’s signature dramas, followed Dexter Morgan (Hall), who was a complicated and conflicted blood-spatter expert for the Miami Police Department but moonlighted as a serial killer.
Hall returns for the limited series revival along with showrunner Clyde Phillips. The two executive produce with John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, Bill Carraro, Scott Reynolds, and Marcos Siega.
