The Exorcist relocates to Seattle for Season 2—and instead of Season 1 star Geena Davis as the original film’s adult Regan, The Next Chapter has John Cho’s Andrew Kim being bedeviled by things that go bump in the night on the supernatural series.
“He is a recently widowed ex–child psychologist who lives on an island in this old house that he shared with his wife and their five foster children,” explains Ben Daniels, whose rogue Father Marcus is back to battle demons with Alfonso Herrera’s Father Tomas. “It’s really creepy and in stark contrast to Season 1’s Chicago.” Especially after one of Kim’s kids goes missing, leading him to one hell of a scary late-night trek through the woods.
