The Walking Dead has been a huge hit for AMC and creator Robert Kirkman is working with another cable channel on a new property.
Outcast has gone to Cinemax, the channel best known for The Knick and Banshee, as well as a whole lot of soft core skin flicks. They're totally legit now though, with Banshee still one of the best shows you're not watching.
This show was developed before Kirkman began publishing the comic back in 2013. The basic plot is about a man whose family seems to have a bad case of demonic possession. He wants to find out why Satan's spawn have a hunger for his folks and goes on a journey of discovery.
And because this is Cinemax, that journey is going to be very violent indeed, and will also probably have some sex in it as well.
Here's the latest trailer.
There's always room for more full blooded TV shows and this is the perfect material for the channel. Lead Patrick Fugit certainly isn't a name but we have faith in the casting, and hey he was the kid in Almost Famous sixteen years ago!
You're Next helmer Adam Wingard has directed the pilot from a script by Kirkman himself and the show has already been renewed for a second season. All bodes well for Outcast, and it will premiere on the 3rd of June 2016.
