Though the season one premiere of Outcast won’t air until June 3rd, you can watch the 55-minute debut episode now… for free!
Based on the Skybound/Image comic title by creator Robert Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta, the series follows Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by demonic possession all his life. Now, with the help of the Reverend Anderson, a preacher with personal demons of his own, Kyle 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.
“Outcast has been a passion project of mine for many years,” said Kirkman. “Seeing it come together has been a huge thrill for me. What we’ve been able to achieve on Cinemax, with its unprecedented creative freedom, frankly, almost scares me at times.”
What came as a surprise was when Cinemax renewed the unseen series for a second season, prior to season one’s debut. Cinemax’s original programming president Kary Antholis explained why the network has that much faith in the show.
“Going into the first season of Outcast, we knew that Robert Kirkman had once again created a world that would scare us to our core. But what he, Chris Black and the rest of their team have delivered has exceeded even those high expectations. We believe our viewers will immediately be sucked into Outcast‘s intense and creepy landscape, which is why we have chosen to pick up a second season.”
A beautifully dark series is headed your way–watch the first episode for free! From the creator of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman presents Outcast. Prepare yourself for the debut Friday June 3 at 10PM.
