Outcast fans don’t have long to wait to get their mitts on brand new episodes: UK broadcaster FOX today revealed that Season 2 will premiere on Monday 3 April, and continue for a ten-episode arc.
In a press release, creator Robert Kirkman said: “The Outcast story, although supernatural on the surface, explores how people cope with extreme circumstances while protecting the ones they love. It’s a theme with which audiences across the world can relate.
“I am thrilled that audiences in over 125 different countries will soon have the chance to see how Kyle, and the other residents of Rome, West Virginia, continue to deal with a town, and a world, that is rapidly becoming darker, sinister and more unpredictable in the show’s second season.”
FOX also treated us to some first look images from Season 2, featuring Patrick Fugit’s character Barnes.
