Dexter fans will be seeing another familiar face in the revival of the Showtime show. In addition to Michael C. Hall reprising his role as the titular character, Jennifer Carpenter will also be making an appearance in the upcoming limited series, according to John Lithgow.

Lithgow, 79, confirmed Carpenter’s return while speaking about reprising his own role in the revival during an interview with Deadline on Tuesday.

“As all Dexter fans know, we saw the end of the Trinity Killer, so that by definition means it’s a flashback,” Lithgow said, explaining how his character would be brought back in the new episodes. “It was just wonderful to rejoin that gang—including Michael and Jennifer Carpenter and [showrunner] Clyde Phillips.”

Carpenter played Dexter Morgan’s sister, Debra, for eight seasons during the show’s original run from 2006 to 2013. Her character was killed off in the series finale, with Dexter (Hall) seen working as a lumberjack in an unknown location before the ending credits.
