OUTCAST Key Art / New Trailer [Video]

Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead) takes a stab at demonic possession in Cinemax’s Outcast TV series. Here we have the recently released key art and new trailer video. Not sure how to call Outcast Season 1 yet but I am game to see what they deliver. Wrenn Schmidt, Patrick Fugit, and Philip Glenister star in Outcast Season 1.

Press Release: Kyle Barnes has been plagued by demonic possession all his life. Now, with the help of the Reverend Anderson, a preacher who has personal demons of his own, the young man embarks on a journey to find answers and regain the normal life he lost. But what Kyle discovers could change his fate--and the fate of the world--forever.

Based on the Skybound/Image comic title by creator Robert Kirkman ("The Walking Dead") and artist Paul Azaceta, the CINEMAX drama series OUTCAST launches its ten-episode first season FRIDAY, JUNE 3 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT). The series is created and executive produced by Robert Kirkman, and executive produced by showrunner Chris Black.

Patrick Fugit ("Gone Girl") stars as Barnes, a man searching for answers, and redemption, who sequesters himself from those he loves for fear of causing greater hurt.

Philip Glenister ("Life on Mars") stars as Reverend Anderson, a West Virginia evangelist who believes he is a soldier in God’s holy war against the forces of evil on Earth. An inveterate drinker and gambler, he doesn’t believe God intends people to sweat the small stuff.

Gabriel Bateman ("Stalker") stars as Joshua Austin, an eight-year-old who lives across town from Kyle. To his family’s dismay, he appears to be in the clutches of demonic possession, but there’s something very different about this possession and its connection to Kyle Barnes.

Other cast members include: Wrenn Schmidt (HBO’s "Boardwalk Empire") as Kyle’s adopted sister, Megan Holter, a child psychologist who makes it her mission to fix the people around her; Reg E. Cathey (HBO’s "The Wire") as Rome’s Chief of Police, Chief Giles, who has seen enough to know there’s some truth to his friend Rev. Anderson’s assertions about demons; Kate Lyn Sheil ("House of Cards") as Kyle’s former wife, Allison Barnes, who has lingering doubts about what happened in their marriage; Julia Crockett ("Law & Order: Criminal Intent") as Kyle’s mother, Sarah Barnes, whose apparent mental illness tainted his childhood; David Denman ("13 Hours") as Megan’s husband, Mark Holter, a by-the-book small town cop whose temper can get him in trouble; and Brent Spiner ("Star Trek: The Next Generation") as Sidney, whose dapper appearance and smiling demeanor hide malevolence.

OUTCAST is produced for CINEMAX by FOX International Studios (FIS), and also executive produced by David Alpert, Sharon Tal Yguado and Sue Naegle. The pilot was directed by Adam Wingard ("The Guest").

Official Synopsis: Kyle Barnes has had a series of misfortunes in his life; his mother would beat him as a child and he was accused of attacking his own daughter. After attending an exorcism in his native town, he is convinced his mother and his wife were possessed and he was not the source of them going bad. He therefore teams up with Reverend Anderson to try and save people that are possessed by demons while putting up with the residents of his town who think he's bad news and would deserve to be in jail.
