Deadline is exclusively reporting that David Magidoff is the latest name to join the cast of the Dexter revival series as 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.
David Magidoff (whose credits include The Morning Show and Top Elf) will be playing the role of Teddy, a new cop that’s only been on the job two and a half weeks in Iron Lake. Good natured, quirky, hardworking, eager to please; and a little scared of his boss Police Chief Angela Bishop. At first glance, he seems timid and inexperienced, but when the rubber hits the road, he’s a dependable badass…in his own way.
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.
