FOX has set Monday 10th April, at 9pm KSA and 10 PM UAE, as the date and time for the Middle East TV premiere for Season 2 of Robert Kirkman’s OUTCAST. Airing of the 10-episode second season coincides with the global premiere date in more than 125 countries and can be viewed in the region on FOX, exclusively on beIN.
An exclusive advance screening of the first episode of OUTCAST Season 2 will take place at the Middle East Comic Con at Dubai World Trade Centre on 6th April 2017 at 8.15 PM.
The strong FOX-beIN partnership is reflected in the various other series aired on FOX, a channel exclusive with beIN. These include The Walking Dead (Season 7) and Legion, X-Files and Wayward Pines among others.
OUTCAST’s first season premiere drew a record 26 million views internationally. In its second season, the mystery of what lies behind Rome’s supernatural manifestations continues. As the possessions that have plagued Kyle Barnes (Patrick Fugit) grow in scope and number, he struggles to protect those he holds most dear. But otherworldly threats prove greater than Kyle could ever have anticipated. His struggle will grow into a fight for all of Rome, as he discovers the haunting secrets of his own past.
“The Outcast story, although supernatural on the surface, explores how people cope with extreme circumstances while protecting the ones they love. It’s a theme with which audiences across the world can relate. I am thrilled that audiences in over 125 different countries will soon have the chance to see how Kyle, and the other residents of Rome, West Virginia, continue to deal with a town, and a world, that is rapidly becoming darker, sinister and more unpredictable in the show’s second season.” said Kirkman.
