Fox Renews 'The Exorcist'


Midnight

It is being reported that The Exorcist has been renewed by Fox for a second season. The novel-based drama premiered last September with a 10-episode run, which is shorter than the typical length of fall series. While a little soft in the ratings, the series found a consistent audience on Friday nights.

Based on the 1971 novel of the same name, The Exorcist follows two very different priests - Father Tomas Ortega, who is the new face of the Catholic Church, and Father Marcus Brennan, a modern-day Templar Knight raised by the Vatican since childhood. Caught in the middle is the Rance family, who are members of Father Tomas' parish. With a demonic presence in their house appearing to grow stronger each day, they appeal to Father Tomas for help, which sets the naïve priest on a collision course with Father Marcus.
