May 14th, 2017 by Marc Comments

There was definitely worries that the devil had won out as far as another series of The Exorcist went… but it looks like the power of Christ has compelled FOX to bring the scary TV Series back.

The show, starring Geena Davis, Ben Daniels and Alfonso Herrera which is based on William Peter Blatty’s novel William Friedkin’s 1973 movie, has had a constant, if not mega viewership throughout the first season and the studio, which is currently looking for a showrunner for season two, has decided to bring it back for at least another year.

Written and executive produced by Jeremy Slater, The Exorcist series is described as a propulsive, serialized psychological thriller following two very different men tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession and confronting the face of true evil. No specific details of where Season 2 might go, but producers say it will open a new chapter of the iconic franchise. Slater told Deadline’s Dominic Patten at the conclusion of Season 1, that he has “a lot more story to tell” if the series was renewed, so stay tuned.

Slater executive produces with Rolin Jones, Rupert Wyatt, Roy Lee, James Robinson, David Robinson, Barbara Wall.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
