It's been 4 years since Michael C. Hall hung up his boots as serial killer Dexter, and he hasn't really had a decent role to sink his teeth into since. However, that looks like it's about to change as Hall has been cast in a new Netflix series that is based on a book by best-selling writer Harlan Coben.

Called 'Safe', it will be an eight-part thriller and is adapted for TV by BAFTA winning writer Danny Brocklehurst (Ordinary Lies, The Driver, Shameless and new BBC drama starting tonight In the Dark).

Hall will star alongside Sherlock's Amanda Abbington and is set to play a paediatric surgeon raising his two teenage daughters Jenny and Carrie alone after the death of his wife.

According to Deadline; "Set in a picturesque gated community, Tom, Jenny and Carrie are thriving until Jenny sneaks out to a party one night – the same night that there's a murder and a disappearance, and buried secrets start coming to the surface."

Filming began today in the UK, and the series will debut on Netflix in 2018.

In the meantime, you can catch Michael C. Hall in The Crown season 2 where he plays JFK.
