The Exorcist is in peril. After two seasons and a CineAward for Best Actor in a Supporting Role in a Drama Series for Ben Daniels and two other nominations – Best Drama Series and Best Breakthrough Actor for Hunter Dillon, the series renewal is still uncertain.
Fan group The Exorcist Congregation sent a message to CineAddiction expressing their concern about the series’ future. There is also some speculation that between April and May an answer may come directly from FOX.
It is important to reflect that this particular show has a 8,2 score on IMDB and it is one of the best horror shows currently up and running on television, with a remarkable cast and a tireless international audience that cherishes it so much. The Exorcist Congregation is stating that FOX didn’t promote the series as it should, which made audiences drop and reaching this critical point.
This group of fans is willing to do everything in their reach to help The Exorcist being renewed and is asking nicely for your support by tweeting FOX about it.
We, at CineAddiction, are supporting this cause because The Exorcist is one of the most underrated TV products of the last few years and sometimes numbers don’t reflect the quality of a particular television show. Actor Ben Daniels is waiting patiently for his well-deserved award but unfortunately we are facing some technical difficulties making them. However, this situation is only temporary and we thank all the fans for supporting us and their favorite TV shows!
Let’s hope The Exorcist gets the renewal it deserves and that quality television will always prevail above numbers. Making a television remake of a cult classic movie and book is not an easy task and we are proud to see that creator Jeremy Slater made a brilliant job not messing up a very cherished legacy.
