The Exorcist season 2 adds John Cho and moves to Seattle

John Cho

When it was first announced that Fox would be airing a television series based on the horror classic THE EXORCIST, the response from fans was, understandably, not overwhelmingly positive. However, once that show actually got started, viewers seemed to be won over by it in a major way. Word of mouth was that TV's The Exorcist was surprisingly great.

Despite the quality that was apparently there, The Exorcist didn't draw in many viewers. I have to admit, I didn't catch even one episode myself. Fox still decided to go ahead with a second season anyway, though, and now details on that upcoming season are starting to be revealed.

Alfonso Herrera, Kurt Egyiawan, and Ben Daniels - who played Father Tomas Ortega, Father Bennett, and Father Marcus Keane, respectively - will be the only returning cast members, and are being joined in the cast by John Cho.

The synopsis for season 2: 

Father Ortega and the newly collarless Marcus Keane find themselves out of Chicago and on the road, searching out evil. Ultimately, the two men are led to Andrew Kim, a former child psychologist who runs a group home for five at-risk foster children on a secluded private island off the coast of Seattle. When one of the children under Andrew’s care is targeted by a powerful force, the two priests head west, setting themselves on a collision course with Hell.

With its (mostly) new cast and new location, The Exorcist will be returning to Fox airwaves on Friday, September 29th.

Now I need to catch up on this show sometime in the next two months.
