What’s On Tonight: Screw walking, Outcast’s undead are practically sprinting to possess you
Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Friday, June 3, and Saturday, June 4. All times are Eastern.
Outcast (Cinemax, 10 p.m., Friday): The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman looks to expand his undead, comics-based TV empire beyond the whole “dead walking” realm with this new supernatural series trading in zombies for supernatural possession and whatnot. Patrick Fugit stars as a troubled guy who’s been possessed by demons for his entire life and would very much like the demons to knock it off now, please. There’s a solid supporting cast, including David Denman, Wrenn Schmidt, and the always-welcome Reg E. Cathey, whose sonorous gravitas is going to chase off evil spirits if anything will. In preparation for all the possessing, check out Alex McCown’s interview with Kirkman and his cast.
