Well, this is pleasant news indeed. It’s been a while since the first season of Fox’s THE EXORCIST completed. In fact, I almost forgot about it but that’s not to say it was bad, actually the first season was really good and it was probably the best genre show this year. I’m glad Fox gave it a chance and renewed it. Read on below for more details.
According to Deadline, The possession series, toplined by Geena Davis, Ben Daniels and Alfonso Herrera based on William Peter Blatty’s bestseller and the classic 1973 movie, has a soft freshman ratings run though held steady. It averaged a modest 1.2 adults 18-49 rating (Live+7). The Exorcist is liked creatively by the network. The pitch for next season was well received, and the genre drama, from 20th TV, had been looking good to continue.
Written and executive produced by Jeremy Slater, The Exorcist series is described as a propulsive, serialized psychological thriller following two very different men tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession and confronting the face of true evil. No specific details of where Season 2 might go, but producers say it will open a new chapter of the iconic franchise.
