Deadline is reporting that Peter Weller (ROBOCOP, SCREAMERS) has signed on for season five of Showtime’s DEXTER.

According to the report, he will appear in eight episodes and will play “troubled Miami Metro police officer who gets caught up in an internal affairs investigation.” He joins Julia Styles (10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU, SAVE THE LAST DANCE), Shawn Hatosy (SOUTHLAND) and Maria Doyle Kennedy (THE TUDORS) as guests for the upcoming season. By all reports, Dexy will be tangling with a number of lesser baddies as opposed to one big McNasty (ala Trinity or Ice Truck).

Production is currently underway and DEXTER will return on Sept 26th (My Birthday!).
