Showtime continues to drop casting bombs about the upcoming fifth season of the serial killer drama, “Dexter.” First, we learned that Julie Benz would reprise her role as Rita, then Julia Stiles was confirmed to appear as a new lady in Dexter’s life, and now Jonny Lee Miller has also landed a role of the show.

Showtime sent out an official press release announcing that Miller will appear in 6 episodes as a mysterious man who is intricately involved in the storyline with Julia Stiles’ character that will bring him into Dexter’s universe. So in other words, the two newbies will be up to something and we probably won’t find out until half-way through the season.

Stiles’ character hasn’t been described as a full-on villain because according to Showrunner, Chip Johannessen they “don’t want to try and top John Lithgow,” from last season. The actor pulled off an award winning performance as a sick and twisted killer who got the best of the title character.

The fifth season of “Dexter” debuts on Showtime this fall and production is currently underway.

What do you think of Johnny Lee Miller joining the cast of Dexter? Do you think this season will be a hit or miss?
