Fans who have been waiting for the premiere date for the highly anticipated series Outcast received some good news.
Based on the Skybound/Image comic title by creator Robert Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta, the Cinemax drama series Outcast launches its ten-episode first season Friday, June 3 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT).
The series is created and executive produced by Robert Kirkman, and executive produced by showrunner Chris Black.
The series follows Kyle Barnes who has been plagued by demonic possession all his life. Now, with the help of the Reverend Anderson, a preacher who has personal demons of his own, the young man embarks on a journey to find answers and regain the normal life he lost. But what Kyle discovers could change his fate — and the fate of the world — forever.
Patrick Fugit stars as Barnes, a man searching for answers, and redemption, who sequesters himself from those he loves for fear of causing greater hurt.
Philip Glenister 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.
Gabriel Bateman stars as Joshua Austin, an eight-year-old who lives across town from Kyle. To his family’s dismay, he appears to be in the clutches of demonic possession, but there’s something very different about this possession and its connection to Kyle Barnes.
