Finally! The wait is over as Outcast season 2 is set to return this July. Cinemax has officially cast out a U.S. premiere date for season 2 of its suspense-horror series Outcast.
Per Deadline, the upcoming season of Outcast will premiere on Cinemax on Friday, July 20.
In the fall of 2017, HBO Miniseries and Cinemax Programming president Kary Antholis spoke about the future of Outcast past a second season, explaining that the cost of producing the show and its delayed U.S. airing leaves options for the cast limited and perhaps even long gone now.
“I think the new season is very strong, and I hope it’s got a bit more fun and entertainment in it, and is a step forward,” Antholis stated. “In success, we left open the possibility that we could have a conversation about figuring out a way to bring it back.”
But because Outcast is such an expensive series, “part of the consideration in doing that will be, what are the constraints [and] are there other co-production opportunities that maybe have a more efficient impact?”
Catch the long-awaited second season of Outcast on Friday, July 20.
