The second season of The Exorcist wraps tonight, December 15th, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Are you a fan? Do you think FOX should renew the series for a third season?
Based on the 1973 feature film and William Peter Blatty’s 1971 novel, the horror drama follows Father Tomas Ortega (Alfonso Herrera) and former priest Marcus Keane (Ben Daniels) as they uncover unusual cases of evil. The cast also includes Kurt Egyiawan, Zuleikha Robinson, John Cho, Brianna Hildebrand, and Li Jun Li. Christopher Cousins, and Cyrus Arnold.
Based on the ratings, a third season of The Exorcist would be surprising. The series landed a surprise second season renewal last May because the first season’s ratings had been dismal. Season two has done much worse. So far, season two is averaging a 0.42 rating in the 18-49 demo and only 1.33 million viewers, making it one of FOX’s lowest-rated TV shows for the 2017-2018 season.
But ratings don’t always determine a show’s future. Like last year, FOX could give The Exorcist another chance.
What do you think? Would you watch a third season or, should this FOX series be cancelled and put to rest?
