Outcast Returns For Season 2 In April On Fox UK
On the 3rd April 2017, Fox UK are going on a Robert Kirkman frenzy, as it not only marks the finale of his global smash-hit The Walking Dead (and companion show Talking Dead), but also the return of his other show, Outcast, for a 2nd season.
In its second season, the mystery of what lies behind Rome’s supernatural manifestations continues. As the possessions that have plagued Kyle Barnes (Patrick Fugit) grow in scope and number, Kyle struggles to protect those he holds most dear. But otherworldly threats prove greater than Kyle could ever have anticipated. His struggle will grow into a fight for all of Rome, as he discovers the haunting secrets of his own past.
“The Outcast story, although supernatural on the surface, explores how people cope with extreme circumstances while protecting the ones they love,” comments Kirkman. “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.”.
Outcast’s first season premiere drew a record 26 million views internationally across its linear broadcast and unprecedented social media and online release.
For those that missed the first season, it’s available on NOW TV and Sky Box Sets right now. Based on the Skybound/Image comic by creator Robert Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta, the series stars Patrick Fugit (Gone Girl) 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 (Life on Mars) 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. Additional cast includes Wrenn Schmidt (Boardwalk Empire) as Megan, Kyle Barnes’ adoptive sister; Reg E. Cathey (House of Cards, The Wire) as Chief Giles; Kate Lyn Sheil (House of Cards) as Allison, Kyle’s ex-wife; Madeline McGraw (Sniper) as Kyle and Allison’s young daughter, Amber Barnes; and Julia Crockett (Law & Order: Criminal Intent), Kyle’s young mother.
