Fox's Exorcist Renewed for Season 2

Here’s some news that may turn your head: Fox has renewed The Exorcist for a second season, TVLine has learned.

Sprung off of the Academy Award-nominated 1973 film of the same name, The Exorcist averaged 1.9 million total viewers and a 0.7 rating on Friday nights, equaling or besting Fox hour-longs Rosewood (cancelled), Sleepy Hollow (cancelled) and Scream Queens (fate TBD) in the demo.

Having told a very specific (and ultimately surprising) story born of the feature film, Season 2 of the contemporary psychological TV thriller will “open a new chapter of the iconic franchise.”
