Strahovski, who played Chuck's one true love Sarah Walker on the NBC action-comedy for five seasons, has been cast on Dexter's new season as Hannah McKay.

The character, which we first reported on in a previous Spoiler Chat, is described as a strong, sexy independent force of nature who has a shaky past she's trying to put behind her…until she meets Dexter (Michael C. Hall).

A turn of events leads Hannah to join forces with Miami Metro Homicide to solve old cases, and Dexter finds himself drawn to her mysterious nature. Is there a romantic entanglement ahead? Possibly. Something tells us Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) will not be a huge fan of Hannah. Of course she just found out her adopted bro is a serial killer, so she might have other things on her mind.

Dexter, which began production last week, premieres Sunday, September 30 on Showtime.

Excited for Yvonne to be back on your TV, hopefully kicking ass again? What do you expect from her mysterious new character Hannah?
