    The Exorcist
    Series Premiere - Friday, September 23rd at 9pm ET/8pm CT

    About the Show
    Widely regarded as the greatest horror movie ever made, The Exorcist broke box office records and terrified audiences around the world. Now, more than four decades after the Academy Award-nominated film, THE EXORCIST returns as a TV series.

    Directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), THE EXORCIST is a propulsive psychological thriller following two very different priests tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession. FATHER TOMAS ORTEGA (Alfonso Herrera, Sense8, The Chosen) is the new face of the Catholic Church: progressive, ambitious and compassionate. He runs a small, but loyal, parish in the suburbs of Chicago. He has no idea that his quiet life is about to change forever. Deep in the slums of Mexico City, another priest has found himself locked in a life-and-death struggle with evil. FATHER MARCUS KEANE (Ben Daniels, Flesh and Bone, House of Cards) is a modern-day Templar Knight, an orphan raised since childhood by the Vatican to wage war against its enemies. Father Marcus is everything Father Tomas is not: relentless, abrasive and utterly consumed by his mission – and he constantly butts heads with his adversary within the church, FATHER BENNETT (Kurt Egyiawan, Beasts of No Nation).

    Caught in the middle of the two priests is the RANCE family, who are members of Tomas' parish. On the surface, they're a normal, American family, but all is not as it seems in this household. The patriarch, HENRY RANCE (Alan Ruck, []iSpin City[/I], Ferris Bueller's Day Off), is recovering from a traumatic injury. Eldest daughter KATHERINE (Brianne Howey, SCREAM QUEENS) has become a recluse who refuses to leave her room. Her younger sister, CASEY (Hannah Kasulka, The Fosters), thinks she's hearing strange noises coming from inside the walls. And mother ANGELA (Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Geena Davis, Commander in Chief, Thelma & Louise) believes there is something in the house, a demonic presence, growing stronger by the day. Desperate, she begs Father Tomas for help, unwittingly setting the naïve young priest on a collision course with Father Marcus. Separately, each faces an insurmountable task, but together they become the Rances' only hope against an evil force that has been mobilizing for centuries.

    THE EXORCIST is from Morgan Creek Productions in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series was created by Jeremy Slater (Fantastic Four). The series is executive-produced by Slater, Emmy Award nominee Rolin Jones (Friday Night Lights, Weeds), Rupert Wyatt, Roy Lee (Hidden, Run All Night) James Robinson (Dream House), David Robinson (Dream House, The Good Shepherd) and Barbara Wall (Boss). Wyatt also served as director on the pilot.

    Hot from Fox...

    JOHN CHO JOINS "THE EXORCIST" IN SEASON TWO

    THE EXORCIST Returns Friday, September 29, on FOX

    John Cho (the Star Trek franchise) has been cast on Season Two of THE EXORCIST, premiering Friday, Sept. 29 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

    Opening an entirely new chapter in the iconic franchise, Season Two of THE EXORCIST finds 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 (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.

    John Cho continues to deliver compelling performances in both film and television. He next will be seen in Kogonada's Columbus, alongside Haley Lu Richardson and Parker Posey, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2017. He recently starred in Justin Lin's Star Trek Beyond, reprising his role as "Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu." He previously appeared in such films as Paul Weitz' Grandma and Mora Stephens' Zipper, which were released last year. Additionally, he starred in Seth Gordon's Identity Thief, opposite Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman; J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness; and That Burning Feeling, a romantic comedy directed by Jason James. Cho is perhaps best known for his starring role as "Harold Lee" in the cult comedy franchise Harold & Kumar, a role he reprised in the latest American Pie installment, American Reunion. On television, Cho starred in the comedy series Selfie, opposite Karen Gillan, and he was featured in FOX's Sleepy Hollow as the corrupt "Officer Andy Brooks."

    THE EXORCIST is from Morgan Creek Productions in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series was created by Jeremy Slater. Slater, Sean Crouch, Rupert Wyatt, Roy Lee, James Robinson, David Robinson and Barbara Wall serve as executive producers. "Like" THE EXORCIST on Facebook at facebook.com/The Exorcist FOX.
