Robert Kirkman’s ‘Outcast’ – Cinemax Sets June 3 Premiere Date

Cinemax announced the June 3 premiere date for Robert Kirkman’s ‘Outcast’ Monday.

Kyle Barnes has been plagued by demonic possession all his life. Now, with the help of the Reverend Anderson, a preacher who has personal demons of his own, the young man 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.

The show is based on the comic book by Robert Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta. The series will be ten episodes and has been picked up for a second season. The showrunner for ‘Outcast’ is Chris Black.

Patrick Fugit stars as Barnes, a man searching for answers, and redemption, who sequesters himself from those he loves for fear of causing greater hurt.

Philip Glenister stars as Reverend Anderson, a West Virginia evangelist who believes he is a soldier in God’s holy war against the forces of evil on Earth. An inveterate drinker and gambler, he doesn’t believe God intends people to sweat the small stuff.

Gabriel Bateman stars as Joshua Austin, an eight-year-old who lives across town from Kyle. To his family’s dismay, he appears to be in the clutches of demonic possession, but there’s something very different about this possession and its connection to Kyle Barnes.
