"The Exorcist" (Fox)

Yeah, that was terrific.


I had a lot of fun with this.  Wrapping up the actual exorcism early was a nice choice.  It gave us some extra time with the kids post-Andy (the Truck stuff was actually pretty emotional), and we got some nice character beats for the main characters.

That ending definitely got me interested in what's to come... if it's to come.  FX would seem like a nice substitute if Fox loses interest.  I really hope we don't lose this series.


I will be pleasantly delighted if Fox gives this another season but as it stands we got two very solid seasons of a great horror TV show that elevated itself beyond the films that inspired it.

ANetflix needs new content desperately at the rate they are losing network and studio support.

I know, like myself, there are some big-time score fans in this thread, so here's a link to purchase Tyler Bates' season two score:

yeah but now FX is owned by Disney (right? i think that was in the deal) so who knows what is going to happen to the various networks/productions once that is all straightened out.


The score for Season 2 by Tyler Bates is now available.

FOX executive on the show's shaky future:

Quote:Looking at renewal possibilities for ongoing series, Newman sounded a positive tone on Gotham, LA To Vegas and Empire while allowing that The Last Man On Earth and The Exorcist are on the bubble.

Of the latter, he said putting the horror series on Friday nights was “tough for that show. We had hoped that we would be able to tap into a moviegoing crowd who didn’t want to go out to the movies… and we did get some viewership. I thought the show was incredibly well produced, the stories were great.” While Newman says there’s great pride in Exorcist, it’s “clearly a show that’s on the bubble.”
Sadly, I can't say I'm surprised. I'm hoping for the best.
Same here. We got two incredibly solid seasons of horror television and I want to see where the story goes but I won't be too surprised if they axe it.

That's my review.
The series was cancelled. Jeremy took it graciously, even saying that Fox liked the show enough to give it a second season, despite low ratings. Still a bummer.

I think they had roughly three more seasons of storylines all lined up, so maybe we'll get a comic book one day.

I'll miss this show.
Inevitable, but still sad. Slater isn't offering even a hint that they are shopping this around, so I guess that's really it. At least we got two good, relatively self-contained seasons out of this.
Bloody Disgusting hounded Slater about what the Season 3 plans were.
Last nail in the coffin.
