Spoilers are ahead. Do not continue reading unless you want to know details about what is coming next on the FOX TV show.
According to Spoiler TV, John Cho will be playing Andrew Kim. It is teased that he is a former child psychologist who now runs a group home for at-risk children on a secluded island. One of the five children under his care will be targeted by an evil entity. It is revealed that the new and existing characters will find themselves on a collision course with Hell.
As for Father Tomas Ortega (Alfonso Herrera) and Marcus Keane (Ben Daniels) in Season 2, they will be on the road searching for evil. Elsewhere, Father Bennett (Kurt Egyiawan) will try to weed out those in the Vatican who are no longer on God’s side.
According to TV Guide, Cho joining The Exorcist Season 2 was announced exactly one month following the news that several series regulars from the freshman season would not be returning. The departing cast members include Geena Davis, Alan Ruck, Brianne Howey, and Hannah Kasulka.
Fans were not sure if the show would be renewed for a second season. Looking at the numbers, The Exorcist was in 20th place in ratings, TV Guide reported. However, the small fan base is passionate and due to it airing on Friday nights, the show was given some leniency. Also, the series was not made at an outside studio. Instead, it was created at 20th Century Fox, which probably helped its case a little bit and gives them more freedom to give the series another chance to impress viewers.
What do you think of The Exorcist Season 2 casting John Cho as Andrew Kim? Does the synopsis for the new chapter intrigue you at all? What do you think will happen with the children and can Father Tomas Ortega and Marcus Keane help the most innocent and vulnerable before it is too late?
