Now that Chuck is over, the cast of that dearly departed spy show must move on. And one major Chuck cast member seems to be moving to the murderous world of Dexter season 7. Keep reading to find out who it could be!

Showtime has just revealed that Yvonne Strahovski, best-known for playing CIA agent Sarah Walker on Chuck, will join the Dexter cast for a multi-episode arc in season 7 of the show.

Strahovski will play the part of Hannah McKay, described as a strong and independent woman struggling to put a difficult past behind her. Hannah crosses paths with Dexter and the detectives of Miami Metro Homicide when events indicate that she might be able to help solve some old cases.

But there's more to Hannah McKay than meets the eye. As Dexter begins to work with Hannah, he begins to wonder if she might be hiding something. Which of course she is, this being Dexter and all.

This casting news does bring up a minor spoiler for Dexter season 7: Dexter Morgan is still employed by the Miami police department. This indicates that Dexter's sister Deb -- who finally found out about her beloved brother's murderous extracurricular activities at the end of season 6 -- has kept quiet for some reason. With Strahovski's casting bringing a pretty female face to the workplace, one has to wonder about the character dynamics that will result.

Although most audience members most likely know Yvonne Strahovski for her long-running Chuck role, the Australian actress will also appear in a couple of upcoming films. She stars with Barbara Streisand and Seth Rogen in Guilt Trip, and Strahovski also will be the female lead (opposite Aaron Eckhart) in I, Frankenstein.

What secrets could be in Hannah McKay's past? Will Dexter see her as an ally, or is Hannah set to be a victim of everybody's favorite serial killer? We will find out when Dexter season 7 begins on Sunday, September 30 at 9pm on Showtime.

Do you think Yvonne Strahovski will be a good addition to Dexter? Will she be virtuous or evil? What are you most looking forward to in Dexter season 7? Leave your comments below!
