FOX’s The Exorcist Season 2 casts Star Trek actor John Cho
Star Trek‘s John Cho has just joined the cast of The Exorcist Season 2, according to TVLine. The cast is changing for the sophomore season of the FOX drama based on the 1973 horror film of the same name. Cast members Alfonso Herrera (The Chosen, Sense8), Kurt Egyiawan (Skyfall, Beats of No Nation) and Ben Daniels (Flesh and Bone, House of Cards) are the only regulars to return to the show and The Exorcist Season 2 will have a new exorcism case, according to the site.
Father Ortega (Herrera) and Marcus Keane (Daniels) have left Chicago and are looking for cases. They find a former child psychologist named Andrew Kim (Cho) who runs a group home for at-risk foster children on an island off the coast of Seattle. One of those children becomes possessed, of course, “putting the priests on a collision course with Hell.”
The Exorcist premiered in September of 2016 and also starred Geena Davis (Thelma & Louise, Beetlejuice), Hannah Kasulka (The Fosters), Alan Ruck (Spin City, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) and Brianne Howey (Scream Queens).
