Just a quick update regarding the seventh season of Showtime’s Emmy winning Dexter. Production on the newest season is set to being on May 23rd. Appearing for the first time on the show are actors Jason Gedrick and Ray Stevenson. Both are believed to have reoccurring roles this season.

Jason Gedrick is best known for his role on the HBO series Luck. While his character has no name yet, he is described as an “owner of a Miami-area gentlemen’s club that becomes linked to a high-profile murder case”. Also joining the cast is Ray Stevenson who is best known for his upcoming roles in Thor 2 and GI Joe: Retaliation. It is unclear whether these two actors will end up on Dexter’s table.

Showtime has ordered a complete seventh and eight season of the show, leading many to believe that the eight season will be the last. While I think it is a good idea to end the show before it gets stale, I will be sad to see the series end. These past two seasons have been unable to live up to the bar set by season four, but there are still plenty of story telling ideas that the show has yet to dig into.
