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?
Best show on TV! The acting is over the top great and the direction is top notch. Smart dialogue, well written and damn scary. I love it so you know they’ll cancel it.
This show absolutely must continue! I look forward each week to find out the next plot twist. The development of ben’s character as a gay man is hugely welcomed! FINALLY to have a priest explore himself outside of constraint is excellent! Please DO NOT CANCEL this SHOW! The low numbers is a bit baffling as this show is top notch. I am sincerely hoping Fox reconsiders and keeps delivering on the best show of the week!
Love the characters. Just a good scary program to put you on the edge of your seat. New programs take more than 1 season to the view hooked.
Love this show, the actors, the scenery, costuming, everything was so well done. It was put into a crappy time slot for the 18-49 demographic (debut show on a Friday night?) but I think it did a nice homage to the original story and I look forward to seeing next season. Hope it won’t be the last. There’s a lot to work with!
I’m glad this show is coming back! It was thrilling and exciting to watch with friends.
This was the best show I have ever watched. I would make sure to watch it on dvr if I wasn’t home. It always left me sitting at the edge of my seat, wanting and waiting for more. They end each night perfectly, making me freak out saying are you kidding me I have to wait week Theo see what happens. I’m sooooo glad they are bringing it back I have been waiting for this. They should have never cancelled it.
We need good horror suspense the Exorcist has it all every episode I got the chills,scared me and creeped me out a few times I won’t lie but I covered my eyes a few times The cast members are wonderful! Can’t wait for season two
We loved it. Maybe should air on Monday or Tuesday. Friday is s show killer. People go out on Friday.
Yea, I myself am glad to see it going to continue
It is very gritty, provoking, well acted and glad for a season two. Hopefully more people will see it and appreciate it.
