Heads are about to spin again with the return of FOX‘s The Exorcist
Are you guys ready for some more epic Priest vs. Demon action? If so, then buckle up because FOX‘s The Exorcist is back – and it looks scarier than ever.
While Season 1 followed the demon-battling veteran priest, Father Marcus Keane (Ben Daniels), and the younger, greener, more skeptical Father Tomas Ortega (Alfonso Herrera) as they fought to save the Rance family (led by Geena Davis and Alan Ruck) from the forces of evil, this time the two priests find themselves fighting demons in a whole new locale…
Here’s the official synopsis:
Six months after leaving Chicago, Father Tomas continues his training to become an exorcist under the watchful eye of his partner Marcus Keane. Their travels lead them to a troubled young woman in rural Montana, where their investigation puts them in the crosshairs of her extended family. But as Tomas’ skills continue to grow, Marcus begins to worry that his apprentice is taking unnecessary risks.
The action then switches to a secluded private island off the coast of Seattle, where Andy Kim (John Cho) runs a group home for at-risk foster children, whose lives are disrupted when the state sends a social worker to determine whether the foster home should be closed. Little do they know the true danger is yet to come: a malevolent presence that has set its sights upon one of the children in Andy’s care.
While I am sad to be missing out on more of Geena Davis and the gang from season one (which also included Hannah Kasulka and Brianne Howey), I’m pretty stoked to see where this new season takes us.
The dynamic between Father Marcus and Father Tomas was always one of the most interesting parts of the show anyway, and plus this season features John Cho (Star Trek, Harold & Kumar) and Brianna Hildebrand (Deadpool), and also brings back Kurt Egyiawan as Vatican liaison Father Bennett.
Let the good times / exorcisms roll!
The Exorcist Season 2 premieres tonight, Friday September 29th on FOX.
