Luke Cage

Luke Cage may have been cancelled, but star Mike Colter has already moved on to a new lead role on the CBS drama Evil.

Colter will star in the pilot for the possible series, reports TVLine. The show was created by Robert and Michelle King, the team behind The Good Wife and The Good Fight. Colter had a recurring role on both programs as Lemond Bishop, a drug lord and legal client.

While Colter will no longer be a superhero, his character will encounter some extraordinary circumstances in the series. Colter plays David DaCosta, a priest-in-training who teams up with a skeptical psychologist and a blue-collar contractor to investigate paranormal happenings. Westworld's Katja Herbers has been cast as the psychologist. The contractor has not yet been cast.

Much like X-Files, Colter's character will play the believer, while Herbers' character is a skeptic.

Although the Kings are best known for their critically acclaimed legal drama, this isn't the first time they have delved into supernatural territory. They created the limited 2016 series BrainDead about alien insects infiltrating the brains of U.S. politicians.

Evil is one of over a dozen pilots currently in the running for CBS's fall season slate.
