“The Exorcist” Season 2 has cast actor John Cho.

According to TV Line, the “Sleepy Hollow” alum will play the role of Andrew Kim, a former child psychologist who runs a home for at-risk foster children in Seattle. Season 1 characters Father Tomas (Alfonso Herrera), Father Marcus (Ben Daniels) and Brother Bennett (Kurt Egyiawan) will head to the foster home when one of Andrew’s kids is targeted by a powerful force.

Last month, the same publication reported that “The Exorcist” Season 2 will no longer feature Geena Davis, Allan Ruck, Hannah Kasulka and Brianne Howey in the upcoming episodes. After all, “The Exorcist” is meant as a standalone series every season. However, Father Tomas, Father Marcus and Brother Bennett will continue to be at the core of the show for future seasons.

While speaking with Deadline, executive producer Jeremy Slater explained that his goal for Season 1 was to tell the story of the Rance family. Now that the mystery surrounding the group has been solved, his challenge for Season 2 is to come up with an equally exciting premise. But during the same interview, the EP said that there’s also a possibility for the Rance family members to appear in “The Exorcist” again. However, they will no longer be the main focus of the show.

When asked if Father Tomas, Father Marcus and Brother Bennett will be part of Season 2 and possible upcoming seasons, Slater said that he feels the three characters have an emotional connection to the audiences. “I think that maybe as long as they are alive they would always be the central focus of the series,” he said.

Meanwhile, FOX’s decision to renew “The Exorcist” for Season 2 came as a surprise to fans and critics of the show. Throughout its 10-episode Season 1, the series did not receive impressive ratings. According to TV Line, the series only averaged 1.9 million viewers and a 0.7 rating in its Friday night time slot. Prior to the renewal, Slater practically begged his Twitter followers to tune in to “The Exorcist.” According to him, a simple difference in ratings could save the show.

For Season 2, “The Exorcist” will continue to air on Fridays at 9 p.m. EST right after “Hell’s Kitchen.”
