This is super cool casting news!
Deadline reports that John Cho, most recently seen in STAR TREK: BEYOND, the Fox TV series SLEEPY HOLLOW (pictured above), and the upcoming indie COLUMBUS has joined the cast of THE EXORCIST: Season 2, which returns with new episodes on Friday, September 29th on Fox.
According to the trade, Season 2 picks up with Father Tomas Ortega (Alfonso Herrera) and a newly collarless Marcus Keane (Ben Daniels) out of Chicago and on the road, searching out evil. Across the Atlantic, Father Bennett (Kurt Egyiawan) attempts to weed out those within the Vatican who have turned against God. Ultimately, Tomas and Marcus are led to Andrew Kim (John Cho), 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.
The first season of THE EXORCIST turned out to be a pleasant surprise and one of the best adaptations of any classic horror film to the TV world. We look forward to whatever showrunner and creator Jeremy Slater have in store for us with the follow-up season this Halloween!
