But that may actually be his least fearsome foe.

According to producer Sara Colleton, Dexter will also have to deal with - cue scary music! - a teenage step-daughter.

"Astor has a little bit more attitude, and she isn't quite as happy just to be a kid. She's flexing her young-woman muscles, and it perplexes Dexter," Colleton told E! News.

Moreover, everyone's favorite mass murderer will have to deal with boy that developments feelings for young Astor.

"There's a very hip, cool, older kid in the neighborhood whom she develops a very big crush on," Colleton said.

As for Cody? He loves his new life, the show runner added:

"[There's] a swimming pool next door and all the food that he can eat. He literally says, 'I want to be just like Dexter.'"
