Cinemax has picked up an adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s exorcism comic, Outcast, for a full 10 episode season.
Kirkman will executive produce the series, giving him two series on the air. Three when the upcoming Walking Dead companion series hits AMC. Kirkman also has yet another show based on a comic in the works. His comic Thief of Thieves is in development at AMC.
The obvious question, of course, is will spreading himself this thin hurt the quality of the original show?
According to The Hollywood Reporter Outcast stars Patrick Fugit (Gone Girl) as Kyle Barnes, a man who has been plagued by possession since he was a child and is now on a spiritual journey to find answers. Those answers, however, could mean the end of life as we know it. The pilot for the series was written by Kirkman.
No premiere date has been set for the new show.
