The series returns for its fourth and final season in Jan. 2016 and will promote the season at NYCC with a panel on Thursday, October 8 moderated by Grantland’s Andy Greenwald. The panel will include executive producer and co-creator Jonathan Tropper, along with cast members Antony Starr (Lucas Hood), Ivana Milicevic (Carrie Hopewell), Eliza Dushku (Veronica Dawson), Frankie Faison (Sugar Bates), and Matt Servitto (Brock Lotus).
Outcast, based on the Skybound/Image comic title by Robert Kirkman, creator of “The Walking Dead,” and artist Paul Azaceta, features the story of Kyle Barnes (Patrick Fugit), a young man who has been plagued by demonic possession all his life. Now, with the help of the Reverend Anderson (Philip Glenister), a preacher with 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.
