Paramount+ with SHOWTIME Announce Cast to Play Morgan Family Members in “DEXTER: ORIGINAL SIN”

“Harry was a great cop here in Miami. He taught me how to think like one; he taught me how to cover my tracks. I’m a very neat monster.” Dexter Morgan

Paramount+ with SHOWTIME has unveiled the cast for their upcoming original drama series “Dexter: Original Sin”, a prequel that will delve into the origins of America’s most notorious serial killer.

Stepping into the iconic role of Dexter Morgan is Patrick Gibson (“Before We Die”, “Shadow and Bone”). Joining him are Golden Globe winner Christian Slater (Very Bad Things, True Romance) as the homicide detective and Dexter’s adoptive father, Harry Morgan, and Molly Brown (“Evil”, Senior Year) as Dexter’s younger sister, Debra Morgan. Emmy nominee Clyde Phillips (“Dexter”, “Nurse Jackie”) will return as showrunner and executive producer.

Set in 1991 Miami, this new 10-episode thriller follows Dexter as he transitions from student to avenging serial killer. Consumed by uncontrollable bloodlust, Dexter must learn to harness his inner darkness under the guidance of his father, Harry. Harry’s carefully crafted “Code” teaches Dexter to target and eliminate those deserving of society’s justice, all while evading law enforcement detection. This proves a particular challenge as young Dexter begins a forensics internship at the Miami Metro Police Department.

“Dexter: Original Sin” is executive produced by Clyde Phillips and produced by SHOWTIME Studios and Counterpart Studios. Serving executive producers also include Scott Reynolds (“Jessica Jones”), Michael C. Hall (“Dexter), Mary Leah Sutton (“Resident Evil), Tony Hernandez (“Emily in Paris”) Lilly Burns (“Russian Doll”), with the series being produced by Robert Lloyd Lewis (“The Lincoln Lawyer”). Reuniting with Slater is Heather‘s director Michael Lehmann, who serves as directing executive producer. 

For Showtime Studios, the series is being creatively overseen by Gary Levine and Urooj Sharif, with production supervised by Tara Power. The series is distributed by Paramount Global Content Distribution outside of Paramount+ markets.
