Robert Kirkman is responsible for more than just The Walking Dead…he’s also written a different series of graphic novels titled “Outcast,” a supernatural series about possession and mystery and possibly the impending apocalpyse. Now, thanks to the ripple effect from TWD, “Outcast” will be adapted as a series as well and will air on Cinemax next year.
If you want to know more than the short press release below and its meager images suggest, you won’t have to wait long: the “Outcast” Comic-Con panel will take place in three days. We will bring more to you then!
“Outcast” at San Diego Comic-Con 2015
Comic-Con goers will get a first look at “Outcast” on Saturday, July 11, in Room 6DE at 3:00 p.m. Panelists include creators and executive producers Robert Kirkman and Chris Black, cast members Patrick Fugit (Kyle Barnes), Philip Glenister (Reverend Anderson), and Wrenn Schmidt (Megan Holter). Kumail Nanjiani (HBO’s “Silicon Valley”) will moderate, followed by a fan autograph signing at 5:45 p.m at Warner Bros. Booth #4545.
“Outcast,” the TV adaptation of Kirkman/Skybound’s comic book by the same name, was developed by FIS and was picked up to series by Cinemax in the US and by FOX International Channels (FIC) outside the US earlier this year. The series follows Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by possession since he was a child. Now an adult, he embarks on a journey to find answers, but what he uncovers could mean the end of life on Earth as we know it.
“Outcast” is expected to premiere day & date on Cinemax in the U.S. and across FIC’s FOX-branded entertainment channels in over 125 countries worldwide in 2016.
Kirkman serves as executive producer alongside David Alpert of Circle of Confusion, Sue Naegle of Naegle Inc., and Sharon Tal Yguado of FIS.
