Evil has a new home this September.
We’re still thrilled that FOX renewed the surprisingly incredible “The Exorcist” for a second season, which is headed our way this coming Halloween season. As Deadline notes, the cast and creative forces will be signing autographs at San Diego Comic Con this weekend, and they also got their hands on the mini-poster they’ll be signing this Thursday (Booth #4229).
This is our first official look at Season 2. Check it out down below.
Opening an entirely new chapter in the iconic franchise, we’ve learned that the second season of “The Exorcist” finds Father Tomas Ortega (Alfonso Herrera) and a newly collarless Marcus Keane (Ben Daniels) out of Chicago and on the road, searching out evil.
Across the Atlantic, Father Bennett (Kurt Egyiawan) attempts to weed out those within the Vatican who have turned against God. Ultimately, Tomas and Marcus are led to Andrew Kim (John Cho), a former child psychologist who runs a group home for five at-risk foster children on a secluded private island off the coast of Seattle. When one of the children under Andrew’s care is targeted by a powerful force, the two priests head west, setting themselves on a collision course with Hell.
Zuleikha Robinson and Brianna Hildebrand also star.
As previously noted, Season One stars Geena Davis, Hannah Kasulka, Brianne Howey and Alan Ruck will NOT be coming back.
“The Exorcist” is from Morgan Creek Productions in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series was created by Jeremy Slater. Slater, Sean Crouch, Rupert Wyatt, Roy Lee, James Robinson, David Robinson and Barbara Wall serve as executive producers.
The new season premieres Friday, Sept. 29 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
