‘The Exorcist’ Renewed for Season 2 at Fox

Fox has renewed “The Exorcist” for a second season, Variety has learned.

The psychological thriller is a TV remake of the classic horror movie, which terrified audiences around the world. No details have been released regarding Season 2, other than opening “a new chapter of the iconic franchise,” per Fox.

Geena Davis stars with Alfonso Herrera, Ben Daniels, Hannah Kasulka, Brianne Howey, Kurt Egyiawan, and Alan Ruck. Executive producers are Jeremy Slater, Rolin Jones, Rupert Wyatt, Roy Lee, James Robinson, David Robinson, and Barbara Wall. Twentieth Century Fox is the studio.

Airing on Friday nights, the series hasn’t been a ratings breakout, averaging a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.9 million viewers, making it one of Fox’s lowest-rated scripted shows, but insiders had said the drama had a good chance for renewal, due to Fox execs liking the show.

Along with “Exorcist,” Fox has renewed dramas “Empire,” “Gotham,” “Lethal Weapon,” “Lucifer,” “Star,” and “The X-Files” for the 2017-2018 television season.
