There was a time when the future of FOX’s “The Exorcist” was incredibly uncertain, which is why it was so exciting when the network announced they had renewed it for a second season. So then, now that we’re five episodes deep into Season 2, how is the overall health of the series at this moment in time?
Today brings some good news, as TV Line reports that “The Exorcist” is “currently eyeing gains of 25 percent,” with this past Friday night’s episode pulling in 1.54 million viewers. While that number is still lower than any Season 1 episode, it’s a significant uptick from recent Season 2 episodes.
For context, here are the Season 2 numbers so far:
- Episode 1: 1.58 million
- Episode 2: 1.36 million
- Episode 3: 1.35 million
- Episode 4: 1.23 million
- Episode 5: 1.54 million
The good news gets even better, as creator Jeremy Slater promises that this Friday’s sixth episode of Season 2 “might be the single best episode we’ve ever done“!
In the episode, titled “Darling Nikki,” A visit to the foster home carries deadly consequences, as Marcus and Father Tomas attempt to draw the demon out of hiding; Rose finds herself the target of the demon’s wrath.
