Bad news if you’re a fan of the TV Series The Exorcist.
FOX has cancelled the series after two seasons. The showrunner Jeremy Slater told at the folks at TV Line what we would have seen in the third season.
MARCUS’ DIVINE MOMENT| “He got a message from God. He clearly knows something bad happened. He clearly knows Tomas is in trouble, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he knows where Tomas is and what that trouble is.”
TOMAS AND MARCUS’ REUNION|“Absolutely it’d be a disservice to come back, and the opening scene of Season 3 is Marcus kicking down the door and saying, ‘Tomas, I miss you.’ We kind of set up this big shooting between the two of them, and then we have to pay that off.”
FLIPPING THE SACRED SCRIPT| Having Marcus work his sources “feels like an interesting way to get Marcus back into that world, as opposed to having him just say, ‘Yes, I’m an exorcist again now!’ Let’s let Tomas carry that standard for a little while. Let’s let Tomas be the exorcist, and let’s let Marcus be the one who has to search for his friend and save his friend.”
FEAR NOT THE FLASHBACKS| “That final scene [in the finale] where Marcus gets that message from God happens six months after the two of them separate. So we’re going to have six months to account for what happened to Tomas and Mouse on the road. There may even be a potential for telling stories that are happening on branching timelines and flashbacks and different things like that.”
Would, this third season, have been better when you look at what Jeremy said? We want your thoughts.
