Double spoiler alert:

Rita was killed off Dexter to end that show's fourth season; while Mona and Karl both died as a result of the recent plane crash on Desperate Housewives.

But there's good news for fans of these Showtime and ABC hits: Julie Benz is coming to Wisteria Lane!

Julie Benz

Sources tell Entertainment Weekly that the actress has landed the role of Debbie, a stripper with a Master's degree that is taken under Susan's wing. She's offered a chance to transition into a more stable career.

Benz will debut on Desperate Housewives in February and appear in at least three episodes. Sounds like a perfect casting match to us.
