Julie Benz Will Be Back on “Dexter”!
Did Rita Bennett rise from the dead?
In the jaw-breaking season four finale of “Dexter”, the character Julie Benz plays, the wife of serial killer Dexter Morgan, Rita Bennett was murdered by the Trinity Killer (John Lithgow).
But apparently that didn’t mean the end for Rita. It has been confirmed that 38-year-old Julie Benz will return for the Season 5 premiere of Dexter.
When asked about how and/or why will Rita be back, executive producer Sara Colleton explained, “Bringing her back in a flashback or visionary way sort of steps on our use of Harry (Dexter’s deceased father).”
“We want to be very, very specific about that and not get gimmicky, because it would become too much of a device,” she added. Hmm… apparently “Dexter” will have another ‘imaginary’ family member.
The show’s network, Showtime, also released a statement on Benz’s return. “As “Dexter” grapples with the reality of the death of his wife and the realization that he is now a single father, the presence of Rita Bennett will help him deal with his newfound feelings of loss and grief — emotions that “Dexter” Morgan has never really felt before,” it reads.
Well, we’re sure now that next season of “Dexter” must be even more exciting than before. Do you agree?
