Two Cinemax Series to Make Their New York COmic Con Debut. Stars And Producers of BANSHEE’s Fourth And Final Season And Upcoming Robert Kirkman Series OUTCAST To Appear
For the first time, the CINEMAX drama series BANSHEE and OUTCAST will have panels at New York Comic Con, being held at the Javits Center this October.
Debuting in 2013 and achieving record ratings for CINEMAX, BANSHEE follows Lucas Hood (Antony Starr), an ex-con and masterthief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, Pa., where he continues his criminal pursuits while enforcing his own code ofjustice. The series returns for its fourth and final season in Jan. 2016.
OUTCAST, based on the Skybound/Image comic title by Robert Kirkman, creator of “The Walking Dead,” and artist Paul Azaceta, follows 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. OUTCAST debuts in the USA on CINEMAX and internationally on FOX in 2016, and is produced by FOX International Studios.
