LOS ANGELES, May 26 (UPI) -- U.S. actress Julie Benz, whose character Rita was killed on TV's "Dexter" last season, will make appearances in upcoming episodes, Showtime said.

"As Dexter (played by Michael C. Hall) grapples with the reality of the death of his wife and the realization that he is now a single father, the presence of Rita Bennett will help him deal with his new-found feelings of loss and grief -- emotions that Dexter Morgan has never really felt before," said a statement issued by the pay cable network.

However, TVGuide.com said it is unclear precisely how or when Rita will return in Season 5.

"Bringing her back in a flashback or visionary way sort of steps on our use of Harry (played by James Remar,)" executive producer Sara Colleton told the Web site, referring to the dead father, who appears to serial killer Dexter periodically. "We want to be very, very specific about that and not get gimmicky, because it would become too much of a device."
