Yes, yes, yes! The best news has finally arrived. Ever since the end of the fantastic first season of Fox’s The Exorcist TV series, I was left wondering if the show would be renewed, as I’m sure many of you were, too, but thankfully it appears as if we will finally be getting a second season.
According to the folks over at Deadline, Fox has given a second season renewal to The Exorcist and is said to be liked creatively by the network. The pitch was well received for the second season and there are talks to bring in a showrunner, too.
At this time that is all we have, but you can leave here knowing that there WILL be more Exorcist on TV in the future.
As per their official website;
Widely regarded as the greatest horror movie ever made, “The Exorcist” broke box office records and terrified audiences around the world. Now, more than four decades after the Academy Award-nominated film, THE EXORCIST returns as a TV series.
Directed by Rupert Wyatt (“Rise of the Planet of the Apes”), THE EXORCIST is a propulsive psychological thriller following two very different priests tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession. FATHER TOMAS ORTEGA (Alfonso Herrera, “Sense8,” “The Chosen”) is the new face of the Catholic Church: progressive, ambitious and compassionate. He runs a small, but loyal, parish in the suburbs of Chicago. He has no idea that his quiet life is about to change forever. Deep in the slums of Mexico City, another priest has found himself locked in a life-and-death struggle with evil. FATHER MARCUS KEANE (Ben Daniels, “Flesh and Bone,” “House of Cards”) is a modern-day Templar Knight, an orphan raised since childhood by the Vatican to wage war against its enemies. Father Marcus is everything Father Tomas is not: relentless, abrasive and utterly consumed by his mission – and he constantly butts heads with his adversary within the church, FATHER BENNETT (Kurt Egyiawan, “Beasts of No Nation”).
