It’s an excellent season for an exorcism.
“The Exorcist” is returning to FOX this coming September for its second season, and though filming only recently kicked off, a few brief clips from the new season are already featured in the network’s just released promo teaser for their Fall programming schedule.
Also included are sneak peeks at fellow genre shows “Ghosted” and “Lucifer”.
Opening an entirely new chapter in the iconic franchise, this year’s 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, Li Jun Li 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… but they COULD have cameos at some point.
“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.
