The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting that Jamie Chung and Oscar Wahlberg latest names 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.
Jamie Chung (whose credits include Lovecraft Country and The Gifted) will play the recurring role of Molly, a famous true-crime podcaster from Los Angeles. Oscar Wahlberg (whose credits include Manchester By The Sea and NOS4A2) will play the recurring role of Zach, the captain of the Iron Lake High School wrestling team. He’s a bit of a bully, but generally the go-to-guy to have a good time. He’s the gateway to the in-crowd, which includes the daughter of the chief of police.
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.
