Published: 06th January 2021

The makers of Showtime's upcoming revival of Dexter have roped in Clancy Brown for a leading role. 

Variety reports that Brown will star as Kurt Caldwell, the primary villain of the show, who is described as the unofficial mayor of the small town of Iron Lake. Caldwell has realised the American dream by going from driving big rigs to now owning several trucks and the local truck stop.

Brown will join series lead Michael C Hall, who will return to play the titular serial killer. Brown is well-known for a lot of his negative roles, including Krungan in Highlander and Captain Hadley in The Shawshank Redemption. He has also voiced the character of Mr Krabds on Spongebob Squarepants for over 20 years.

Dexter originally ran for eight seasons and followed the life of the titular character, a serial killer who targets other serial killers while also working as a blood spatter expert for the Miami Police Department. The production of the limited series revival of Dexter will begin in 2021 with Clyde Phillips returning as series showrunner.  

The 10-episode limited series will be executive produced by Clyde  Phillips, Michael C Hall, John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, Bill Carraro and Scott Reynolds.
