"Outcast" (TV show) is a drama series on Cinemax that is based on the Skybound/Image comic title by creator Robert Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta.

The series 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. But what Kyle discovers 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. Gabriel Bateman ("Stalker") stars as Joshua Austin, an eight year old who lives across town from Kyle. To his family's dismay, he appears to be in the clutches of demonic possession, but there's something very different about this possession and its connection to Kyle Barnes.

Other cast members include Wrenn Schmidt ("Boardwalk Empire") as Kyle's adopted sister, Megan Holter, a child psychologist who makes it her mission to fix the people around her; Reg E. Cathey ("The Wire") as Rome's Chief of Police, Chief Giles, who has seen enough to know there's some truth to his friend Rev. Anderson's assertions about demons; Kate Lyn Sheil ("House of Cards") as Kyle's former wife, Allison Barnes, who has lingering doubts about what happened in their marriage; Julia Crockett ("Law & Order: Criminal Intent") as Kyle's mother, Sarah Barnes, whose apparent mental illness tainted his childhood; David Denman ("13 Hours") as Megan's husband, Mark Holter, a by-the-book small town cop whose temper can get him in trouble; and Brent Spiner ("Star Trek: The Next Generation") as Sidney, whose dapper appearance and smiling demeanor hide malevolence.

"Outcast" is produced for Cinemax by FOX International Channels, who will serve as the studio and international network on the series, which is created and executive produced by Robert Kirkman ("The Walking Dead") and Chris Black. Executive producers also include David Alpert of Circle of Confusion, Sharon Tal Yguado of FIC and Sue Naegle. The pilot was directed by Adam Wingard ("The Guest").
