Fox’s ‘The Exorcist’ Has Been Nothing Short Of Brilliant. This Twist Takes The Show To Another Level.

Many thought when Fox premiered ‘The Exorcist‘ that it would be a remake of the original. After a major twist in the most recent episode, everything has changed!

If you don’t want to be spoiled about the Exorcist TV show, don’t read anymore!

So, it looks like this isn’t a remake of the 1973 William Friedkin film ‘The Exorcist‘. After Angela Rance (Geena Davis) revealed her name is actually Regan MacNeil, the girl from original, looks like this is a sequel!


No one was really expecting this to be a sequel so this shocked many of the viewers. This also opens up the story for so many more opportunities. With Angela being Regan, they can connect the original to this and continue to the universe expanding.

It’s already started as the episode ended with Regan’s mother, Chris MacNeil, arriving. We now have three generations of exorcisms. Chris dealt with her daughter Regan and now Regan is dealing with her daughter’s possession.

The show has been changed for the better with this shocking revelation.

Fox stepped their game up with this show. Add in the campy ‘Scream Queens‘ and horror fans have a reason to flock to the channel. It’s hard to please television viewers and hardcore horror fan but ‘The Exorcist‘ is doing just that.

What did you think of this twist? Let me know in the comments below.

The Exorcist‘ returns November 4th!

  1. So I had a couple of questions, if anyone can help… First, I LOVE the series, but:

    Where does Angela’s red bird come from? I thought the movie talked about Regan using a Ouija board to talk to “Mr. Howdy”?

    Wasn’t Regan’s mother a rich actress in the movie? The TV show talks about Angela/Regan leaving home because Chris tried to use the possession to make a buck…

    I’m not trying to be picky, I didn’t see all the sequels because they were supposed to be terrible. Also, is it me, or are they overusing the fedora and trenchcoat thing a bit much? They’ve already done that with Marcus and now Chris McNeill… I’m all for a throwback, but I hope that’s the last silhouette, lol!

  2. Just watched it. I have no words. Never expected that Angela = Regan. Trying to remember the end of Exorcist II. I need to read it again. Love this show. . Especially when the figure in the raincoat stood under the. Street light. That was the exorcist in the first book but now it’s Regan’s mother!!
