Outcast Series 2 is Much Bigger and More Dangerous
Robert Kirkman’s twisted and twisting exorcist series, Outcast, burst from its humble comic book beginnings to the small screen last year. In preparation for the much-awaited second series, we were lucky enough to sit down with star Philip Glenister to talk exorcisms, evangelists and Englishisms…

Philip Glenister on stardom, faith and his role as exorcist Reverend Anderson in drama Outcast
The Life On Mars actor found inspiration while watching an evangelist on US TV, noting his magnetism and the power he commanded over the audience.
We have added over 70 screen captures from Philip's appearance on Harry Hill's Alien Fun Capsule yesterday.
The show involved a game of celebrity selfies top trumps and a local news round-up read by the guests as well as a bit of singing and dancing. Philip even resurrected Gene Hunt (complete with camel coat) for his entrance!
Season two of possession-series-with-a-twist Outcast, created by The Walking Dead’s Robert Kirkman, begins in the UK in April.
Philip, who plays Rev Anderson in the show, spoke to Jayne Nelson of MYMBuzz ahrad of the broadcast, about the bigger and more dangerous series 2.
The biggest arc that I can tell you is the fact that what we, the characters, and the audience perceive as being this virus – this threat that’s spreading – turns out to be much, much, much bigger and more dangerous thing than any of us thought possible. Season one was quite a slow-burner in order for the audience to get acquainted with the characters, so the bar is raised pretty high now in season two. The other things I would say is that Sidney, Brent Spiner’s character, is not necessarily the sum of his parts and is certainly not working alone. So he’s not just this slightly strange figure; there’s some sort of thing going on there. And the crux of it is that what we realise now is that anybody and everybody could be possessed. Which creates a state of paranoia and fear and distrust amongst the townsfolk, which have repercussions.

Outcast series 2 begins on 3rd April on FOXTVUK
FOX has announced April 3rd as the UK premiere for season 2 of Robert Kirkman’s supernatural thriller Outcast. The second season will consist of 10 episodes and will premiere following the season 7 finale of The Walking Dead and it’s companion series Talking Dead - an event which they're calling 'Walkers vs Demons night'.
In a press release, creator Robert Kirkman said:
The Outcast story, although supernatural on the surface, explores how people cope with extreme circumstances while protecting the ones they love. It’s a theme with which audiences across the world can relate. “I am thrilled that audiences in over 125 different countries will soon have the chance to see how Kyle, and the other residents of Rome, West Virginia, continue to deal with a town, and a world, that is rapidly becoming darker, sinister and more unpredictable in the show’s second season.”
The time of broadcast is yet to be confirmed but we're assuming 11pm given the information about following the Walking/Talking Dead. Whether it will move to TWD's 9pm timeslot in the weeks following we do not yet know.
Philip's appearance on ITV panel show, 'Harry Hill's Alien fun Capsule' will be broadcast on Thursday 23rd March at 8.30pm.
The show sees two teams tasked with saving planet earth from alien invasion! Each team must find clips, people, basically anything that is fun or funny enough for Harry to place in a capsule which, in the event that we're invaded by aliens, we can present to them to demonstrate earthlings are good fun and therefore worthy of saving. Over a series of rounds, the two teams of two present Harry with fun stuff which Harry must adjudicate on and ultimately decide what's in and what's out of the Fun Capsule with the triumphant team winning bragging rights. Along the way there will be sketches, studio items and special guests. And the occasional appearance of an alien.
Other panellist in this episode include, actress Sally Lindsay and DJ Sara Cox.
