As reported by Entertainment Weekly, John Cho (Star Trek) has joined The Exorcist’s cast for the second season, which got a renewal back on May.
The Exorcist is a Fox drama, based on the novel The Exorcist, starring Alfonso Herrera (Sense8), Ben Daniels (House of Cards) and Geena Davis (Thelma & Louise). The series follows the story of two priests, Father Thomas and Marcus (Herrera and Daniels respectively), who must save a family terrorized by a dark presence in their home.
John Cho will join Herrera and Daniels as Andrew Kim, a former child psychologist who now runs a group home for at-risk foster children. His path will cross with Father Tomas and Marcus’ search for evil when one of the kids under his care becomes the target of a demon.
Jeremy Slater, creator of the show, told EW back when the series was renewed what we might expect from this next season.
“You’ll see a new possession case, a new family or individual who needs Marcus and Tomas’ help in season 2, and at the same time you’ll see our larger mythology. The world is starting to change around Marcus and Tomas and their enemies are getting more ambitious and are taking moves to consolidate power. So, trying to balance that political paranoia of never quite knowing who you can trust, with another strong emotional story about these two different men coming together to save a family in peril, that’s always going to be the basic DNA of The Exorcist.”
