A new trailer and poster for Robert Kirkman’s Outcast has arrived and pledges to fight the forces of darkness.
The new TV series from The Walking Dead creator stars Patrick Fugit, Philip Glenister, Reg E Cathey and Wrenn Schmidt.
It “follows Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by demonic possession all his life. Now, with the help of the Reverend Anderson, a preacher with personal demons of his own, Kyle embarks on a journey to find answers and regain the normal life he lost. But what Kyle discovers could change his fate — and the fate of the world — forever.
Patrick Fugit stars as Barnes, a man searching for answers, and for redemption, who sequesters himself from those he loves for fear of causing greater hurt. Philip Glenister stars as Reverend Anderson, a West Virginia evangelist who believes he is a soldier in God’s holy war against the forces of evil on Earth. An inveterate drinker and gambler, he doesn’t believe God intends people to sweat the small stuff. Gabriel Bateman (Stalker) stars as Joshua Austin, an eight-year-old who lives across town from Kyle. To his family’s dismay, he appears to be in the clutches of demonic possession, but there’s something very different about this possession and its connection to Kyle Barnes.”
The pilot was directed by the excellent Adam Wingard (You’re Next, The Guest), and we’re hoping that Outcast delivers on its horror premise.
Outcast starts on 7 June at 10pm on FOX. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
