As we stated in a previous post Cinemax is debuting its supernatural show OUTCAST on June 3. The show got quick buzz as it offered up facts and a cast at both New York and San Diego’s Comic Con events in 2015. This year’s SWSX hosted the world premiere of OUTCAST’s premiere episode and off of all that buzz and attention the show, based on the Skybound/Image comic title by creator Robert Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta locked in a Season two commitment.
Now Cinemax has been kind enough to open up the show’s first episode to non-subscribers. 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 who has 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.
Now we do not know how long the episode will be available for so we embed it here with the understanding that at some point it will be pulled. But, if you are interested in getting a peek at what all the chilling buzz is about than here is an opportunity to catch it before it is gone. If the show is, perchance, quite successful HBONow/Go might make the entire season available to view at some point as it did with THE KNICK, but that would not happen for a long while or at all. Now is your chance. Unless, or course, you are lucky to have a Cinemax/HBO bundle and can get the show Friday nights as it unfolds for its ten episode run. Here is Patrick Fugit as Barnes the show’s lead, Philip Glenister as Rev. Anderson and Gabriel Bateman as the possessed Joshua in OUTCAST.
