‘Chuck’ Star, Yvonne Strahovski, Joins Season 7 of ‘Dexter’

Yvonne Strahovski, last seen in NBC’s Chuck, has joined the cast of Showtime’s Dexter.

Strahovski, who will appear in a multi-episode story arc in the upcoming seventh season, will play the role of Hannah McKay. She’s a “strong, independent woman with a past that she’s struggled to put behind her.  As a turn of events leads Miami Metro Homicide to ask for her help in solving some old cases, Dexter works with her and begins to wonder if there’s more to this woman than she’s professed,” reads the press release.

Production on season seven began last week and will premiere on SHOWTIME on Sunday, September 30th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Strahovski is best-known for playing CIA operative “Sarah Walker” on NBC’s long-running action-comedy Chuck. Up next, she co-stars in two films: Guilt Trip opposite Barbara Streisand and Seth Rogen; and as the female lead in I, Frankenstein with Aaron Eckhart.  She also starred in the 2011 Toronto Film Festival darling Killer Elite.
