“All nature will be renewed by fire.”
Tonight’s brand new episode of Fox’s “The Exorcist” is particularly exciting, as it was directed by none other than Ti West (V/H/S, The House of the Devil, The Sacrament)!
In “Unclean,” which should make for perfect Friday the 13th viewing, “Marcus and Tomas travel to Seattle where they find a young girl targeted by a force of pure evil.”
We can exclusively reveal ahead of the episode that we’ll meet brand new character Mouse in it, portrayed by Zuleikha Robinson (“Lost”, “The Following”). As creator Jeremy Slater explained to us, Mouse is “our first Female Exorcist.”
He continued, “As a woman, she was not sanctioned or taught by the Church, so Mouse had to go to other religions and spirituality to train herself. And her methods are far different than the typical “Ritual and Repetition” taught by the Catholics to drive out demons. As her unofficial contact told Bennet: ‘Try not to let her have a gun.'”

In the new season…
“Six months after leaving Chicago, Father Tomas continues his training to become an exorcist under the watchful eye of his partner Marcus Keane. Their travels lead them to a troubled young woman in rural Montana, where their investigation puts them in the crosshairs of her extended family. But as Tomas’ skills continue to grow, Marcus begins to worry that his apprentice is taking unnecessary risks.”
“The action then switches to a secluded private island off the coast of Seattle, where Andy Kim (John Cho, “Star Trek,” “Harold & Kumar”) runs a group home for at-risk foster children, whose lives are disrupted when the state sends a social worker (Li Jun Li, “Quantico,” “Blindspot”) to determine whether the foster home should be closed. Little do they know the true danger is yet to come: a malevolent presence that has set its sights upon one of the children in Andy’s care.”
The main Season 2 cast includes Alfonso Herrera as Father Tomas Ortega; Ben Daniels as Father Marcus Keane; John Cho as Andy Kim; Kurt Egyiawan as Father Bennett; Brianna Hildebrand as Verity; Zuleikha Robinson as Mouse; and Li Jun Li as Rose.
“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 exec produce.
