'Dexter': Katherine Moennig to guest star in Season 5

kate-moennig-showtime-320.jpgFans of "The L Word" will be glad to hear that Katherine Moennig is making her return to Showtime on the critically acclaimed "Dexter" as reported by TV Guide.

Moennig's breakout "L Word" character, Shane, was a hairdresser with a love 'em and leave 'em attitude. On "Dexter," she'll be playing a tattoo artist who somehow finds herself embroiled in Dexter Morgan's ( Michael C. Hall) world.

Moennig, who was last seen alongside Alex O'Loughlin on the failed "Three Rivers," has signed on for one episode in Season 5. Also appearing this season on Dexter are Julia Stiles, Peter Weller, Johnny Lee Miller, and oddly enough, Julie Benz, whose character was brutally killed off last season.

"Dexter" is currently in the running for seven Emmy Awards, including outstanding drama and lead actor for Hall.
