June 5, 2024 – Paramount+ with SHOWTIME today announced additional series regulars for DEXTER: ORIGINAL SIN, the new 10-episode original drama series that chronicles America’s favorite serial killer in training. James Martinez (Love Victor), Christina Milian (Falling Inn Love),Alex Shimizu (The Blacklist) and Reno Wilson (Mike & Molly) join the previously announced cast members Golden Globe winner Christian Slater as Harry Morgan, Patrick Gibson as Dexter Morgan and Molly Brown as Debra Morgan. Production commences today in Miami, with Emmy® nominee Clyde Phillips (DEXTER, NURSE JACKIE) returning as showrunner and executive producer.

These four actors star as members of the Miami Metro Police Department.

Set in 1991 Miami, DEXTER: ORIGINAL SIN follows Dexter (Gibson) as he transitions from student to avenging serial killer. 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 enforcement’s radar.
