Six months after leaving Chicago, Father Tomas continues his training to become an exorcist under the watchful eye of his partner Marcus Keane. Their travels lead them to a troubled young woman in rural Montana, where their investigation puts them in the crosshairs of her extended family. But as Tomas' skills continue to grow, Marcus begins to worry that his apprentice is taking unnecessary risks. The action then switches to a secluded private island off the coast of Seattle, where Andy Kim (John Cho, "Star Trek," "Harold & Kumar") runs a group home for at-risk foster children, whose lives are disrupted when the state sends a social worker (Li Jun Li, "Quantico," "Blindspot") to determine whether the foster home should be closed. Little do they know the true danger is yet to come: a malevolent presence that has set its sights upon one of the children in Andy's care.

DESCRIPTION:
(from FOX's press release, May 2016) Widely regarded as the greatest horror movie ever made, "The Exorcist" broke box office records and terrified audiences around the world. Now, more than four decades after the Academy Award-nominated film, THE EXORCIST returns as a TV series. Directed by Rupert Wyatt ("Rise of the Planet of the Apes"), THE EXORCIST is a propulsive psychological thriller following two very different priests tackling one family's case of horrifying demonic possession. FATHER TOMAS ORTEGA (Alfonso Herrera, "Sense8," "The Chosen") is the new face of the Catholic Church: progressive, ambitious and compassionate. He runs a small but loyal parish in the suburbs of Chicago. He has no idea that his quiet life is about to change forever. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, another priest finds himself locked in a life-and-death struggle with evil. FATHER MARCUS BRENNAN (Ben Daniels, "Flesh and Bone," "House of Cards") is a modern-day Templar Knight, an orphan raised since childhood by the Vatican to wage war against its enemies. Father Marcus is everything Father Tomas is not: relentless, abrasive and utterly consumed by his sacred mission. Caught in the middle is the RANCE family, members of Tomas' parish. On the surface, they're a normal, suburban family, but all is not as it seems in this household. The patriarch, HENRY RANCE (guest star Alan Ruck, "Spin City," "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"), is slowly but surely losing his mind. Eldest daughter KATHERINE (Brianne Howey, SCREAM QUEENS) has become a recluse who refuses to leave her room. Her younger sister, CASEY (Hannah Kasulka, "The Fosters"), thinks she's hearing strange noises coming from inside the walls. And mother ANGELA (Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Geena Davis, "Commander in Chief," "Thelma & Louise") has been plagued by recurring nightmares, each more frightening than the last. Angela believes there is something in the house, a demonic presence, growing stronger by the day. Desperate, she begs Father Tomas for help, unwittingly setting the naïve young priest on a collision course with Father Marcus. Separately, each faces an insurmountable task, but together they become the only hope against an evil force that has been mobilizing for centuries.
