Deadpool co-star Brianna Hildebrand, who was excellent in the slasher Tragedy Girls, has landed one of the female leads opposite John Cho in the upcoming second season of Fox’s horror drama “The Exorcist”, Deadline reports.
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.
Hildebrand will play Verity, one of Kim’s (Cho) foster children in Season Two, premiering Friday, Sept. 29 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Being close to 18 years old, her time in the house is coming to an end. Her tough exterior makes it seem as if she doesn’t care when in reality, she would die for her siblings and Andrew.
In first actual story details:
“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 (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.”
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.
