TORONTO (October 8, 2015) – HBO Canada announced today that the greatly anticipated, 10-episode drama series OUTCAST, from Robert Kirkman – creator of The Walking Dead graphic novels, and executive producer on THE WALKING DEAD – and Chris Black (MAD MEN), is set to premiere on the channel in 2016. Based on the Skybound/Image comic title of the same name by Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta, OUTCAST 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.

Patrick Fugit (Gone Girl) 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 (LIFE ON MARS) 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 (STALKER) 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.

OUTCAST is produced for CINEMAX by FOX International Channels. The pilot was directed by Adam Wingard (The Guest).
