May 23, 2024 – Paramount+ with SHOWTIME today announced the cast of the new original drama series DEXTER: ORIGINAL SIN (previously titled DEXTER: ORIGINS). Patrick Gibson (Shadow and Bone) will play the titular role of Dexter Morgan; Golden Globe winner Christian Slater (Mr. Robot) will play Harry Morgan, Dexter’s adoptive father and homicide detective; and Molly Brown (Senior Year) will play Dexter’s younger sister, Debra Morgan.

When his bloodthirsty urges can’t be ignored any longer, Dexter must learn to channel his inner darkness. With the guidance of his father, Harry (Slater), he adopts a Code designed to help him find and kill people who deserve to be eliminated from society without getting on law enforcements’ radar. This is a particular challenge for young Dexter as he begins a forensics internship at the Miami Metro Police Department.

Slater received Golden Globe and Critics Choice Awards along with multiple nominations for his role in Mr. Robot.  His other credits include Dr. Death, for which he received a Critics Choice nomination,  Dirty John and Nymphomaniac along with cult classics True Romance and Heathers.

Gibson can most recently be seen in the television series Shadow and Bone. Additional past credits include in The OA, Good Girl Jane, and Property of the State, the latter of which earned him the Irish Film and Television Award® for Rising Star in 2017. 

Brown's past credits include roles in EVIL, BILLIONS, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, as well as films including Senior Year and The Good House. She’s set to appear in the upcoming independent film Mooch.

In 2013, the Writer's Guild of America included DEXTER in their list of the “101 Best Written TV Series”. In 2021, the original series’ sequel, DEXTER®: NEW BLOOD, delivered record-breaking numbers, becoming the most-watched series in SHOWTIME history.
