FOX has announced that season two of Robert Kirkman’s possession series Outcast will premiere in the UK on FOX on 3 April. The new season will be 10 episodes long again.
Comic book and horror fans are in for a treat on 3 April, because that’s the day that will also see the season seven finale of The Walking Dead air on FOX in the UK. FOX is dubbing the night (which also, of course, includes The Talking Dead) Walkers Vs Demons Night.
In the second season of Outcast, the mystery of what lies behind Rome’s supernatural manifestations continues. As the possessions that have plagued Kyle Barnes (Patrick Fugit) grow in scope and number, Kyle struggles to protect those he holds most dear. But otherworldly threats prove greater than Kyle could ever have anticipated. His struggle will grow into a fight for all of Rome, as he discovers the haunting secrets of his own past.
“The Outcast story, although supernatural on the surface, explores how people cope with extreme circumstances while protecting the ones they love. I am thrilled that audiences in over 125 different countries will soon have the chance to see how Kyle, and the other residents of Rome, West Virginia, continue to deal with a town, and a world, that is rapidly becoming darker, sinister and more unpredictable in the show’s second season,” says Robert Kirkman.
Outcast is based on the Skybound/Image comic title by Robert Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta. The series is created and executive produced by Robert Kirkman and executive produced by showrunner Chris Black, David Alpert, Sharon Tal Yguado and Sue Naegle. Patrick Fugit (Gone Girl) stars as Barnes, a man searching for answers, and for redemption, who sequesters himself from those he loves for fear of causing greater hurt. Philip Glenister (Life on Mars) stars as Reverend Anderson, a West Virginia evangelist who believes he is a soldier in God’s holy war against the forces of evil on Earth. An inveterate drinker and gambler, he doesn’t believe God intends people to sweat the small stuff. The series also stars Wrenn Schmidt (Boardwalk Empire) as Megan, Kyle Barnes’ adoptive sister; Reg E Cathey (House Of Cards, The Wire) as Chief Giles; Kate Lyn Sheil (House of Cards) as Allison, Kyle’s ex-wife; and Madeline McGraw (Sniper) as Kyle and Allison’s young daughter, Amber Barnes.
