"Dexter" is making a big play for fans of NBC's much-loved but little-watched "Chuck": The series' Yvonne Strahovski is joining the Showtime serial-killer drama for its seventh season.
Strahovski will appear in a multi-episode story arc as Hannah McKay, "a strong, independent woman with a past that she's struggled to put behind her," according to Showtime.
As Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) and his Miami Metro Homicide cohorts ask for her help in solving some old cases, Dexter begins to wonder if there's more to her than there seems to be. Dexter will have plenty more to deal with next season, given that season 6 ended with his sister, Deb (Jennifer Carpenter), discovering that he's a serial killer.
Production on season 7 started last week. it will premiere on Sunday, Sept. 30.
Strahovski is best-known for playing CIA operative Sarah Walker on NBC’s "Chuck. " She is also co-starting in the film "Guilt Trip," opposite Barbara Streisand and Seth Rogen and starring in "I, Frankenstein" with Aaron Eckhart.
