Yvonne Strahovski Joins ‘Dexter’ Cast

Any Dexter fans glum with the recent news that the show will end after its eigth season can be pleased to have some good news today. The gorgeous Yvonne Strahovski, who portrayed government agent Sarah Walker on Chuck, is joining the cast for the seventh season. Strahovski will play the role of Hannah McKay, a woman who, according to Strahovsk, “took off from this small rinky-dink Florida town and ran off with this older guy and they went on this wild killing spree.”

The character crosses paths with Dexter a few years after this, her killer ex-boyfriend in prison after McKay turned on him to save herself. Hannah McKay sounds like a different kind of woman to the ones Dexter has met in the past. She’s strong and cold, and is set to intrigue the show’s titular character far more than those before her. “Every woman that Dexter’s ever… been involved with have been incredibly needy. Hannah has a cool aloofness, but there’s something about her that will intrigue him,” said Strahovski.

Season seven of Dexter airs on September 30 on Showtime. The latest TV spot is embedded below:
