Get ready for some scary news. The Exorcist TV show has been renewed for a second season on FOX.
Based on the 1973 film, the horror drama follows two priests as they try and tackle a horrifying demonic possession. The cast includes Alfonso Herrera, Ben Daniels, Kurt Egyiawan, Geena Davis, Alan Ruck, Brianne Howey, and Hannah Kasulka.
Ratings for The Exorcist were never very good. Airing on Friday nights, the show only earned an average rating of 0.68 in the 18-49 demo and 1.91 million viewers, making it one of FOX‘s lowest-rated series for the 2016-2017 season.
What will season two be about? Back in December, series creator and executive producer Jeremy Slater said, “I love these characters and this world and I have a lot more story to tell… My general response is that the characters that survive 9the first season] finale and still have interesting stories to tell — you will absolutely see them again in the future if we have one. Partially because I think we’ve create a big and exciting world with a mythology that we barely begun to scratch the surface of, and I think there are stories to be told in this world to be told for years to come.”
What do you think? Did you see The Exorcist? Do you think it should’ve been cancelled? Are you glad it’s been renewed for a second season?
