With the fall television season kicking into high gear, several returning favorites have undergone noteworthy changes.
Whether it’s major casting shuffles on Once Upon a Time and Grey's Anatomy or unexpected departures on Hawaii Five-0 and Chicago P.D., there’s never a dull moment when it comes to keeping track of the upcoming 2017-18 season.
Et highlights seven returning TV shows that will have a different look and feel this fall.
Chicago P.D. (NBC)
Chicago P.D. lost a big member of their department when Sophia Bush abruptly left the show in May. The show hinted at Bush's departure in the season four cliffhanger finale, when her character, Erin Lindsay, considered taking a job with the FBI in New York -- but the NBC cop drama looked internally for her replacement. Revolution alum Tracy Spiridakos made her Chicago P.D. debut at the end of season four, when her character, a robbery »
Brianna Hildebrand (Deadpool) and John Cho (Star Trek Beyond) are the latest additions to the world of The Exorcist TV series, joining several returning actors in a new season that will take Father Marcus (Ben Daniels) and Father Tomas (Alfonso Herrera) from the streets of Chicago to a foster home off the West Coast. While at Comic-Con in San Diego, Daily Dead took part in interview roundtables with The Exorcist cast and executive producers Jeremy Slater and Sean Crouch, who shared what fans can expect in the second season that premieres on Friday, September 29th on Fox.
When did you find out that you were joining the cast, and what can you tell us about your character?
Brianna Hildebrand: Not that long ago, maybe a month ago. It's when I got a letter from the producers and writers, and they were explaining to me what character they were offering »

Speed is an action thriller movie that was released in 1994. It tells the story of a bus that is rigged with a bomb that will explode when the bus slows to a certain speed and an Lapd cop is trying to save the civilians on the bus. The movie starred Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock, Dennis Hopper, Alan Ruck, Jeff Daniels and Joe Morton. It was Jan de Bont’s feature film directorial debut and was a surprise commercial and critical success. In fact, it was so successful that a sequel was made in 1997 called ‘Speed 2: Cruise Control’ (which

While Fox’s flagship panel and its presentation of Kingsman: The Golden Circle stole headlines left, right, and center, the company also staged a handful of smaller Sdcc showcases for some of its other properties. Case in point: The Exorcist.
Featuring a smattering of cast and crew members, the show’s panel took place yesterday evening, where key creative players like Jeremy Slater and executive producer Sean Crouch solicited questions about what The Exorcist season 2 has in store. Spoilers: if you’re at all familiar with Japanese horror, you may recognize the general aesthetic of the show’s sophomore season.
In fact, by relocating to the Pacific Northwest, it’s clear Fox is toying with an anthology format when it comes to The Exorcist, which may well allow the series to succeed where other film-to-tv adaptations (see: Minority Report, 24: Legacy, Emerald City) have failed. And so, gone are Geena Davis, »

Out of all the many, many film classics that have received a new lease of life in the form of a spinoff TV series, The Exorcist is arguably one of the few to prove its doubters wrong.
Whereas Minority Report, 24: Legacy, and even Emerald City failed rather spectacularly – all three were yanked off the airwaves after one season a piece – The Exorcist defied the naysayers to become one of the more intriguing horror series on the small screen, and it’s a credit to writer-director Jeremy Slater and the rest of the team that Fox’s creepy drama is able to live up to those lofty expectations that come hand-in-hand with any property directly related to William Friedkin’s film classic of ’73.
That means Slater and Co. now have their work cut out if they are to deliver a story that is just as emotionally compelling (and terrifying!) as the first, »

What a wonderful place for an exorcism. The Exorcist season 2 will venture out of Chicago to a private island in the Pacific Northwest. And, in other news, Deadpool's has been cast as one of the female leads.
She will fit into a foster home storyline, on the island. One of the kids in the home is a demon who catches the attention of roving exorcists Tomas Ortega and Marcus Keane. Hildebrand will play Verity, a teen about to turn 18, who's on her way out of the house.
Hildebrand recently starred in Kerem Sanga’s First Girl I Loved, and will reprise her role as Negasonic Teenage Warhead in the upcoming Deadpool 2. She will next be seen in Tragedy Girls, an independent dark comedy.

Though The Gifted may be the highest-profile series premiere lining Fox’s fall 2017-2018 slate – Bryan Singer and Matt Nix’s X-Men family drama has been booked in for early October – the network still has plenty of fan-favorite shows returning for another crack of the whip. Case in point: The Exorcist.
Whereas a small number of movie-to-tv adaptations bombed spectacularly back in 2016 – namely Minority Report and the recently-canned 24: Legacy – Fox’s horror anthology series struck a chord with audiences and even managed to maintain a relatively healthy threshold of two million viewers per episode. Even after all these years, it turns out there’s still an appetite for William Friedkin’s film classic of ’73.
And so, to strike while the iron was hot, Fox quickly ordered a second season of The Exorcist, which is now expected to loom over the small screen on Friday, September 29th. As previously reported, the Rance family won’t be returning, meaning that Geena Davis, Hannah Kasulka, Brianne Howey, and Alan Ruck have parted ways with the series – for now, at least.
“A potential season two would find Marcus, Tomas and Bennett tasked with helping a new family or a new case of possession,” he shared with us ahead of the renewal.
“Our challenge now is to create a new family that you care about just as much as the Rances, and to find ways to make their story feel just as compelling and unique as what came before. That doesn’t mean we’ll never see any of the Rances again.
Ready for another season of supernatural thrills and spills? The Exorcist anthology series returns via Fox on Friday, September 29th, at 9:00-10:00 pm Et/Pt. The Gifted, on the other hand, begins its mutant family saga on Monday, October 2nd. »

Fox had an unexpected hit on their hands with the first season of The Exorcist, picking up a smattering of positive critical notices and decent ratings. So, it’s no surprise that they renewed it for a second season. The show is a loose sequel to the 1973 William Friedkin movie classic, following a trio of Exorcist priests, with the first season exploring what happened to formerly possessed puker Regan MacNeil over the last forty or so years.
In an eye-catching bit of casting, Geena Davis was brought on board as MacNeil and was generally agreed to be one of the best things in the series. That makes it a little disappointing then that she’s confirmed that she’s departing the show. Rather than re-cast the role, executive producer and director Jeremy Slater has simply decided to focus the second season narrative elsewhere.
This means, apparently, not just jettisoning Davis’ character, »

What's next for The Exorcist? According to TVLine, some cast members will not return for season two of the Fox TV series.Based on the 1973 horror film, the drama follows two priests as they try and tackle a horrifying demonic possession.

Back in May, fans of Fox's The Exorcist TV series rejoiced when the network announced that the series would be returning for a second season, but according to the latest casting details, there will be some big changes in the show moving forward.
According to TVLine, while Alfonso Herrera, Kurt Egyiawan and Ben Daniels—who all play priests on the series—will return as series regulars in season 2 of The Exorcist, the actors who played the members of the Rance family—Geena Davis, Alan Ruck, Hannah Kasulka and Brianne Howey—will not be coming back in a series regular capacity, as a different exorcism is expected to take the spotlight this time around.
A family plagued by demonic possession, the Rances were the primary focus of the priests in season 1, but season 2 will explore "a new storyline," as showrunner Jeremy Slater mentioned to Deadline in late 2016, adding that it "doesn »

War Machine, 2017.
Written and Directed by David Michod.
Starring Brad Pitt, Scoot McNairy, Anthony Michael Hall, Rj Cyler, Topher Grace, Anthony Hayes, John Magaro, Emory Cohen, Meg Tilly, Alan Ruck, Will Poulter, Aymen Hamdouchi, Daniel Betts, Lakeith Stanfield, Nicholas Jones, Justin Rosniak, Josh Stewart, Kola Bokinni, Griffin Dunne, Pico Alexander, Derek Slow, Tilda Swinton, and Ben Kingsley.
An absurdist war story for our times, writer-director David Michôd (Animal Kingdom) recreates a U.S. General’s roller-coaster rise and fall as part reality, part savage parody – raising the specter of just where the line between them lies today. His is an exploration of a born leader’s ultra-confident march right into the dark heart of folly. At the story’s core is Brad Pitt’s sly take on a successful, charismatic four-star general who leapt in like a rock star to command Nato forces in Afghanistan, only to be taken »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.
While the recent 10 Cloverfield Lane and Room told stories of captivity with various hooks — science-fiction and the process of healing, respectively — Cate Shortland’s approach in her latest, harrowing drama Berlin Syndrome makes room for more nuance and depth. Locked in a Berlin apartment, there is little hope for our protagonist for nearly the entire runtime. And while some of the story’s turns can feel overtly manipulative, »

Streaming services are really making their mark on the cinematic world. Between Amazon and Netflix, the film festival circuit has seen some big time buys from these would be studios. Netflix has gone a step further, funding some huge projects. One such movie is War Machine, a hugely baity satire that the service forked over heavy money to produce. Starring Brad Pitt and hitting on timely material, this really seemed like it would be an opportunity for the service to contend for some Oscars. Sadly, it isn’t up to snuff in that regard. Still, audiences might be interested in seeing Pitt don the fatigues once again. The film is a satire about military bureaucracy. Initially positioned to be about General Stanley McChrystal since it’s an adaptation of the non fiction book The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan, which is about the General. »

Leading independent British exhibitor Curzon has confirmed that Netflix’s Cannes competitor “Okja” and Brad Pitt comedy drama “War Machine” will receive exclusive theatrical screenings in its cinemas day-and-date with their Netflix debuts.

It tells the story of a young girl who risks everything to prevent a powerful multinational company from kidnapping her best friend, a massive animal named Okja.
