Outcast follows Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by demonic possession all his life. Now, with the help of the Reverend Anderson, a preacher with personal demons of his own, Kyle embarks on a journey to find answers and regain the normal life he lost. What Kyle discovers, however, could change his fate—and the fate of the world—forever.
Patrick Fugit (Gone Girl) stars as Barnes, a man searching for answers, and for redemption, who sequesters himself from those he loves for fear of causing greater hurt. Philip Glenister (Life on Mars) stars as Reverend Anderson, a West Virginia evangelist who believes he is a soldier in God’s holy war against the forces of evil on Earth. An inveterate drinker and gambler, he doesn’t believe God intends people to sweat the small stuff. In the first episode, Gabriel Bateman (Stalker) appears as Joshua Austin, an eight-year-old who lives across town from Kyle. To his family’s dismay, Joshua appears to be in the clutches of demonic possession, but there’s something very different about this possession and its connection to Kyle Barnes.
Joining Fugit and Glenister as season 1 regulars are Wrenn Schmidt as Megan Holter, David Denman as Mark Holter, Reg E. Cathey as Chief Byron Giles, Kate Lyn Sheil as Allison Barnes and Brent Spiner as Sidney.
