Posted by Debi Moore on March 21, 2017

While Cinemax is playing it coy with regard to when Season 2 of “Outcast” will be kicking off here in the States, over in the UK the show premieres on FOX on April 3rd.

To help us all get ready for the chaos to come, Skybound has released a new video in which series creator Robert Kirkman, exec producer David Alpert, and co-stars Patrick Fugit, Wrenn Schmidt, and Madeleine McGraw discuss what’s ahead.

Along with that, thanks to Spoiler TV, we have short descriptions of all 10 Season 2 episodes (minus their titles):

Season 2 Overview: In the second season of “Outcast,” the exploration and mystery of what lies behind the supernatural manifestations and why they are drawn to Kyle Barnes (Patrick Fugit) continues. As the possessions that have plagued him grow in scope and number, Kyle struggles to protect those he holds most dear. At his side are Reverend Anderson (Philip Glenister) and Chief Giles (Reg E. Cathey), while his sister, Megan (Wrenn Schmidt), grapples with her own demons. 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.

Episode 2.01: Kyle finds the possession phenomenon to be more widespread than he had imagined. Reverend Anderson struggles with guilt over his actions at the end of Season 1. Megan and Holly deal with the aftermath of Mark’s tragic death.

Episode 2.02: With the help of Chief Giles, Kyle pursues a more aggressive strategy to deal with the possession problem in Rome – and discovers a new foe. Reverend Anderson faces the consequences of his rash choices. Megan resorts to desperate measures to deal with her grief over her husband.

Episode 2.03: Megan must face the consequences of her actions. Meanwhile, a disappearance in Rome leads Kyle and Anderson to a new and dangerous consequence of the rise in possessions.

Episode 2.04: A dangerous fugitive on the loose threatens the town of Rome as well as Reverend Anderson’s sanity. Kyle struggles with a new understanding of where his powers – and his curse – originated. Megan and Holly attempt to rebuild their lives.

Episode 2.05: Kyle gets closer to finding Sidney, while Anderson discovers an unexpected potential ally. A prominent member of the Rome community is revealed to be an agent of the possessed, and few characters will escape his plan unscathed.

Episode 2.06: Kyle’s family and friends mourn the aftermath of the Episode 2.05 disaster – until a revelation from Reverend Anderson compels them to use Amber’s unique powers. Allison rejoins her family in Rome.

Episode 2.07: Kyle attempts to get his family to safety as the town of Rome becomes increasingly overrun by the possessed. Anderson takes Megan under his wing, bringing her to find solace in an unlikely place. Chief Giles realizes his wife has been resorting to desperate measures.

Episode 2.08: Kyle faces the mysteries behind his powers. Reverend Anderson finally confronts Sidney as Doctor Park’s plans grow in scale. Megan makes an unlikely friend – one who will prove dangerous. Chief Giles tries to defend himself and his wife from the tide of the possessed in Rome.

Episode 2.09: Kyle and Anderson face down Sidney – until an unexpected threat intervenes. Megan leaves the relative safety of the backwoods church, and danger quickly finds her. Tragedy strikes the Giles family. An unexpected stranger rivets Kyle’s attention.

Episode 2.10 (Season Finale): Kyle reluctantly joins forces with a mysterious stranger in an attempt to end the possession threat once and for all, but he fears the man may be hiding something.

#SDCC16: Five Things We Learned About The Walking Dead Season 7

Posted by Debi Moore on July 24, 2016

This past Friday the new trailer for “The Walking Dead” Season 7 hit the Internet, and due to the way Season 6 ended, of course there wasn’t much revealed.  Afterwards, we had a chance to take part in the press conference for the show, which was attended by stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Sonequa Martin-Green, Michael Cudlitz, Josh McDermitt, Ross Marquand, Christian Serratos, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan plus executive producer and showrunner Scott M. Gimple, executive producer Robert Kirkman, executive producer Gale Anne Hurd, executive producer Dave Alpert, and special effects makeup supervisor and executive producer Greg Nicotero.

They were all pretty tight-lipped about what lies ahead, but we did manage to pry a little bit of info from them.  Here are five things we leaned:

– When asked whom we might be meeting in Season 7, Kirkman teased that there will be “more new characters, but right now we’re focusing on Ezekiel (played by Khary Payton) and Shiva (his pet tiger).”  Since it’s “not humane and also very dangerous to have a live tiger on set,” Shiva will be “all magic” (i.e., CGI). Gimple then joked that considering how good they’re getting at CGI, “one way or another, [although] I make no promises, we may see” some zombies in snow. Alpert explained that the Ezekiel/Shiva storyline “will not play out how you expect… [there will be] lots of swerves, zigging and zagging.” And is the “All Out War” of the comics coming?  Alpert, per usual, hedged, saying, “The show has to have a life of its own… this season and the plan to come is hitting [all the] milestones.”

– On the mental state of our survivors: Yeun said they “were over-confident, but now they are more scared than they’ve ever been… ever.”  Cudlitz emphasized that they are realizing things are “really going sideways in real time.”  Gurira added that Rick had “confidence that almost teetered into cocky,” and they “were shown something quite different” than what they expected.  Lincoln echoed her thoughts: “Hubris was Rick’s downfall.” He was “probably doing the right thing” but had “too much pride behind it.” Now he’s “truly terrified for the first time since waking up” in the hospital.  “All he’s worked for, for 7 years, has been shattered.” Cohan succinctly summed up what’s been an overriding theme of the show since the beginning: “…there will be suffering and that is inevitable, but what do you learn and what do you become?”

– As for deciding on Negan’s victim(s), Nicotero explained that it was a huge challenge because “you know it’s coming… usually no one knows… but here everyone know it’s coming.”  It’s important that it’s “brutal and unexpected and senseless” and lives “up to expectations.” The aftermath will be “how that [one act] changes the direction of the survivors… forever.” Hurd added that the “introduction to Negan is so important for people who don’t read the comic” so they’ll know “what a fomidable, but somehow incredibly charming person he is.”

– Speaking of Negan, the equally charming Morgan said there’s “no trace of ‘Jeff’ there” in the character.  The role is like something he’s “never done before… I changed my movements and the inflection in my voice.”  It “gets seriously weird” when Negan is around, but he’s thankful since the role is “something really special.”  As for the fans’ reaction, he said, “Right now I’m okay… next year is going to be different.”  He expects a “salute of middle fingers” at the 2017 SDCC.

– Last, but certainly not least for us, we heard from Nicotero about the “amazing stuff” they have planned for the zombies this season.  Since Season 7 picks up immediately from the end of Season 6, not enough time has elapsed for any major changes to be required for the walkers, but he and his team “spent a lot of time finessing and fine-tuning” their look.  He said everyone working on the show is “still enthusiastic and committed… and take great pride that seven years ago there was nothing like this on TV.”

Below are some photos from our time with the cast and crew. “The Walking Dead” returns Sunday, October 23. After a mid-season break, the show will be back February 2017.

Fox International Channels Developing New Exorcism TV Series Based on Robert Kirkman Comic

Posted by The Woman In Black on March 4, 2013

Fox International Channels Developing New Exorcism TV Series Based on Robert Kirkman ComicExorcisms may not be burning up the box office, but Fox International Channels is hoping the concept is still viable for the small screen. Read on for the details.

From the Press Release:
FOX International Channels (FIC), "The Walking Dead" creator/executive producer Robert Kirkman, Kirkman’s Skybound imprint at Image Comics, and Circle of Confusion are developing a script based on Kirkman’s upcoming comic book series set in the world of exorcism. This partnership emerged from a long-standing and successful relationship between Kirkman and FIC during the ongoing run of AMC’s hit series "The Walking Dead," based on Kirkman’s Eisner Award-winning comic book series, on which FIC is international partner.

Told through the Kirkman prism, the series follows a young man, Kyle Barnes, who has been plagued by possession since he was a child. Now an adult, he embarks on a spiritual journey to find answers, but what he uncovers could mean the end of life on Earth as we know it. Kirkman will serve as executive producer alongside "The Walking Dead" executive producer David Alpert of Circle of Confusion.

Kirkman states, “Sharon Tal Yguado and the entire team at FOX International Channels have been instrumental in making 'The Walking Dead' the worldwide success that it has become. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to continue working with this forward-thinking and extremely talented group.”

“Exorcism has captivated movie audiences all over the world but has never been explored on television,” said Sharon Tal Yguado, EVP Global Scripted Programming and Original Development at FIC. “Robert Kirkman, who forever changed the scope of cable TV with 'The Walking Dead,' possesses an unparalleled talent of telling big concept stories in a smart and incredibly genuine way. We couldn’t be more excited to be working with him on this project, which we see as a reinvention of the genre.”

Look for more soon!
