The fifth season of Dexter will air later on this month and newest cast member Julia Stiles, is excited about her ten week stint as a mysterious character who manages to get close to Dexter following Rita’s death. Seeing as there is always a central character that is just as twisted as Dexter in every season, expect an unpredictable and fascinating storyline between the two characters. Dexter is racked with guilt and anger over his wife’s death and it seems obvious that Julia’s role will fill a void in Dexter’s life now that Rita (Julie Benz) was killed, but that almost seems too obvious.









Stiles, best known for her roles in The Bourne Series and Save the Last Dance, is keeping just as mum about her character as the show’s executives who reveal nothing, not even her name in this press release:

LOS ANGELES, CA June 7, 2010 - Julia Stiles has joined the cast of SHOWTIME’s Emmy-nominated drama series DEXTER. Stiles, who will appear in ten episodes in the upcoming fifth season, will play a mysterious young woman who forms a unique relationship with Dexter (Michael C. Hall) in the wake of the death of his wife. Production on season five begins this month and will premiere in the fall on SHOWTIME.

The storyline will be especially dynamic this season because Rita’s death completely changes the formula of the show. The story picks up right where it left off, in real-time and Dexter is no longer seen as a mild mannered forensics expert. There is blood on his hands and fingers are pointing in his direction in the wake of his wife’s death by the Trinity Killer (John Lithgow).  Their relationship gave him a sense and appearance of normalcy and with his anchor taken away so brutally and publicly, there is little for him to hold on to which threatens to crumble the very foundation Harry’s ‘rules’ were built on.


Expect to see British born actor and Angelina Jolie ex-hubby, Jonny Lee Miller in the new season as well. The Eli Stone, Hackers star’s role is being kept under wraps as well but we do know that he will be involved somehow with Stiles character.

Will Dexter forget ‘the rules’ and go full-on sociopath? Will Rita’s death shed unwanted light into Dexter’s extracurricular activities? What will happen to the kids? So many questions, stay tuned for the answers when the new season starts September 26 on Showtime.
