Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) is apparently going to need a full-time nanny when season eight of Showtime’s Dexter returns.
Actress Aimee Garcia, who has been recurring as graduate student Jamie, has been promoted to series regular, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Garcia has been recurring on the Showtime serial-killer drama, where she cares for Harrison while his father juggles his Dark Passenger and job as a blood-splatter analyst at Miami Metro. She’s the sister of Dexter’s colleague Angel (David Zayas).

In the season-seven finale, Angel was on the brink of retiring from his detective position in favor of a simpler life running a restaurant. With the death of his recent ex-wife Maria LaGuerta (Lauren Velez), it’s unclear just how his law-enforcement career will be affected.
In addition to her role on Dexter, Garcia has been recurring on CBS’ freshman drama Vegas, opposite Michael Chiklis and Dennis Quaid. She’ll next be seen in the MGM RoboCop update starring Gary Oldman.
Repped by Paradigm, Thruline Entertainment and Peikoff-Mahan Law, Garcia joins a season-eight cast that includes new recurring guest stars Charlotte Rampling and Sean Patrick Flanery, who play a psychiatrist who works with young psychopaths (gulp, Harrison?) and a PI, respectively. Production begins in the next few weeks in Los Angeles.
Dexter‘s eighth and potentially final season will shift to a spring run and premiere at 9 p.m. on June 29 on Showtime.
