John Cho (Star Trek, Harold and Kumar films) has joined the cast of Fox’s critically acclaimed horror series, The Exorcist. Cho is taking on a major role in season two of the series alongside returning season one stars Ben Daniels (‘Marcus Keane’), Alfonso Herrera (‘Father Tomas Ortega’), and Kurt Egyiawan (‘Father Bennett’). Season two is set to premiere on Friday, September 29, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT.

Jeremy Slater created the series and executive produces with Sean Crouch, Rupert Wyatt, Roy Lee, James Robinson, David Robinson, and Barbara Wall. Season one debuted on September 23, 2016 and featured Geena Davis, Alan Ruck, Brianne Howey, and Hannah Kasulka as a family desperately in need of the help of Fathers Keane and Ortega. Season two will find the exorcists confronting a new evil.

The Season 2 Plot: Opening an entirely new chapter in the iconic franchise, season two of The Exorcist finds Father Tomas Ortega (Herrera) and a newly collarless Marcus Keane (Daniels) out of Chicago and on the road, searching out evil. Across the Atlantic, Father Bennett (Egyiawan) attempts to weed out those within the Vatican who have turned against God. Ultimately, Tomas and Marcus are led to Andrew Kim (Cho), a former child psychologist who runs a group home for five at-risk foster children on a secluded private island off the coast of Seattle. When one of the children under Andrew’s care is targeted by a powerful force, the two priests head west, setting themselves on a collision course with Hell.
