The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting that Michael Cyril Creighton is the latest name to join the cast of the Dexter revival series at Showtime.
The series followed Dexter Morgan, who leads a double life as a forensic analyst and blood-splatter expert at the Miami Metro Police Department as well as being a serial killer who only kills criminals that slip through the criminal justice system.
The revival series picks up ten years after Dexter Morgan went missing the eye of Hurricane Laura, now living in Upstate New York.
Michael Cyril Creighton (whose credits include Spotlight and Dash & Lily) will be playing the recurring role of Fred Jr., the congenial owner of Fred’s Fish & Game, a shop he inherited from his father. He has grown up in Iron Lake and is a regular fixture around town that everybody knows and loves, whether it’s line dancing at the local tavern or singing in the choir. He’s married to Brian, the pastor of the small congregational church in town.
The original series began in 2006 and ran for 8 seasons, concluding in 2013 with a very much talked about and discussed conclusion. Clyde Phillips, the original series showrunner, returns as showrunner for the upcoming revival series, with Michael C. Hall also starring and executive producing the series alongside Phillips, John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, Bill Carraro and Scott Reynolds.
The Dexter revival is aiming to go into production in early 2021, and premier in autumn 2021.
