Clancy Brown (Billions, Emergence) will star opposite Michael C. Hall in the limited series, which reunites Hall and Dexter's first showrunner, Clyde Phillips, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
He'll play a character named Kurt Caldwell, the unofficial mayor of a small town called Iron Lake and be the primary antagonist for Hall's avenging serial killer.
Kurt is a former big rig driver and now owner of several trucks and the local truck stop. A man of the people, he's loved by everyone in town; if he's got your back, consider yourself blessed. Should anyone cross him, or hurt someone he loves, however, God help them.
Showtime announced the Dexter revival in October, with an eye toward a fall 2021 premiere date. The series would resume eight years after a widely panned series finale that found Dexter faking his own death and going into self-imposed exile working as a lumberjack.
