Fresh off the well received series finale of NBC's Chuck earlier this year, the beautiful and talented Yvonne Strahovski has just booked her first TV role since CIA badass Sarah Walker. Strahovski has signed on to appear on multiple episodes of the hit Showtime drama Dexter's upcoming seventh season. Exactly how many episodes has yet to be disclosed.
Yvonne will portray Hannah McKay, a strong-willed independent woman with a complicated and unpleasant past that she's constantly trying to overcome. A series of events leads Miami Metro to ask for her assistance in cracking some cold murder cases, which leads to her working alongside America's favorite serial killer Dexter Morgan. However, there is apparently more to McKay than what she presents on the surface, and Dexter takes it upon himself to find out what she's hiding. This being Dexter, the chances of it not involving murder are about 0.1%. Although it would be a fun wrinkle if she's somehow connected to one of Dex's past victims.
Production on season seven of the critically acclaimed drama began last week, and the season premiere will air on Sunday, September 30th on Showtime. Only time will tell what the seventh year of Dexter has in store for us, but one thing I'm certain of is that we'll never get another villain as horrifying as John Lithgow's often nude Trinity Killer. That guy was seriously creepy.
Do you think Yvonne Strahovski will make a good foil for the always great Michael C. Hall?
