Kirkman’s “Outcast” Renewed, Sets Premiere

Cinemax has given a vote of confidence to its new exorcism drama “Outcast” by giving it a second season renewal – three months before the series premiere goes to air from June 3rd.

Patrick Fugit plays a man who has been plagued by possession since he was a child. Now an adult, he embarks on a spiritual journey to find answers – but the truth could end the world.

“The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman is behind the drama, based on his own comic of the same name, and made the announcement during the show’s panel at SXSW. It’s the second series to have scored such a pre-air renewal, the other being Steven Soderbergh’s “The Knick”.

Kirkman himself made some headlines last year for being a part of the cabal of writers hired to work as the “Transformers” brains trust – and then leaving one day into the proceedings. Turns out it was for health reasons, he tells Collider that he only did a day before he found out that he was having throat surgery.
