Good news, Outcast fans! The suspense-horror series from The Walking Dead‘s Robert Kirkman finally has an official return date for its second season, which is Friday, July 20 at 10:00 pm ET/PT on Cinemax! Outcast Season 2 continues the journey of Kyle Barnes (Patrick Fugit), who has been seeking answers after being plagued by demons since childhood — but what he uncovers could mean the end of life as we know it.
Outcast will return for a 10-episode second season as the show probes the mystery of what lies behind the town of Rome’s supernatural manifestations, and why they are drawn to Kyle. The series explores how people cope with extreme circumstances while protecting the ones they love.
Patrick Fugit (Gone Girl) stars as Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by demonic possession all his life. With the help of Reverend Anderson, played by Philip Glenister (Kingdom of Heaven), a preacher who believes he is a soldier in God’s holy war against the forces of evil, Kyle tries to protect those he holds most dear, now that the otherworldly threats prove greater in scope and number than anticipated. His struggle will grow into a fight for all of his hometown as he discovers the haunting secrets of his own past.
Other cast members in the second season include Wrenn Schmidt (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 (The Wire) as Chief Giles, Rome’s chief of police 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 a suspense-driven, psychological journey led by an incredible cast. The series is created and executive produced by Robert Kirkman and is based on the Skybound/Image comic title by creator Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta. Fox International Studios for Cinemax produces the show, which is also executive produced by showrunner Chris Black, David Alpert, Sharon Tal Yguado, and Sue Naegle.
