From killer to killer boss

Gellar will guest star in the prequel to Dexter which takes place 15 years before the original series. It will follow Dexter Morgan's (Patrick Gibson) early days on the Miami PD, as he navigates murderous impulses he can no longer ignore and begins to play vigilante serial killer under the guidance of his father Harry (Christian Slater).

The star of Buffy plays Tanya Martin, head of the Miami Metro scientific police, and therefore Dexter's new boss, but she will not be the only one giving orders to the young man.

It was also recently announced that Patrick Dempsey (Grey's Anatomy) will lend his features to the captain of the criminal squad, Aaron Spencer. Unlike Gellar's role, Dempsey plays a recurring character who has known Harry Morgan for a long time.

“Sarah Michelle Gellar is a pop culture icon who perfectly complements our premier cast, including Christian Slater and Patrick Dempsey.”said Nina L. Diaz, President of Content and Chief Creative Officer, Showtime/MTV Entertainment Studios & Paramount Media Networks.
