Cinemax's new show "Outcast" will be featured in a panel presentation at Comic-Con International in San Diego this summer. The series, which premiered June 3, is based on Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta Image Comics/Skybound series "Outcast," which explores the world of demonic possession.
The panel will take place on Saturday, July 23 at 5:15 p.m. in Room 6BCF. Kirkman will be in attendance, alongside showrunner Chris Black. They will be joined by cast members Patrick Fugit (Kyle Barnes), Philip Glenister (Reverend Anderson), Wrenn Schmidt (Megan Holter), Reg E. Cathey (Chief Giles) and Brent Spiner (Sidney). The panel will be preceded by an autograph signing, which will take place at 4:15 p.m.
"Outcast" is a supernatural horror story that follows Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by possession since he was a child. Now an adult, he embarks on a journey to find answers but what he uncovers could mean the end of life on Earth as we know it.
Of the series, Kirkman has said," I think the same way that "Walking Dead" is a zombie-adjacent survival show about people surviving after the fall of civilization, this show doesn't hang its hat on it being an exorcism genre. I think it's a big part of the show. It's an undercurrent that's in every episode. But this is, as the series progresses, you'll see this is something very different. I like to think of it as much more of a character drama that has awesome exorcisms from time to time."
"Outcast" currently airs Fridays at 10 p.m. on Cinemax.
