If the rumors are true, death may be coming to "Dexter" ... but not before a new cast of characters hops on board.

TV Guide is reporting that "One Tree Hill" vet Bethany Joy Lenz has joined the Showtime series as Cassie, "an attractive former finance executive looking for a quieter life" who moves in next door to Dexter.

EW has also confirmed that "Last Resort" actor Darri Ingolfsson has booked a recurring role in the show's eighth season as an antique dealer of old medieval equipment who starts dating Dexter’s neighbor, presumably Cassie.

Lenz and Ingolfsson will be joined by "Walking Dead" actor Nick Gomez, Sean Patrick Flanery, Charlotte Rampling and Jennifer Carpenter, who will also appear in Season 8 of "Dexter."

Will Lenz, Ingolfsson and the rest of the gang be another group of victims for Dexter and Deb? It's possible, especially considering the amount of victims the serial killers managed to rack up in their first seven seasons.


Season 8 Of "Dexter" will premiere on Sun., June 30 at 9 p.m. ET on Showtime.
