Today’s news isn’t what you might call surprising but all the same, it looks like Cinemax had finally pulled the plug on their horror series Outcast from creator Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead).

Review: Outcast (2015), a lifeless and confusing action "epic"

I’m a big fan of Nicolas Cage, believe it or not. He’s a pretty great actor in the right role, and a hilariously over-the-top one when playing the wrong character. He is very expressive, knows how to use his body and mannerisms —even now that he’s developing a beer gut and losing his hair—, and is a master at playing men on the verge of collapse. He might not be the best at choosing roles (especially since he filed for bankruptcy), but his presence usually guarantees that a movie will, at least, be mildly entertaining. That might just be the case of “Outcast”, an epic that pairs him with my other favourite “bad” actor, Hayden Christensen. Mind you, most people know Christensen from the “Star...

Robert Kirkman’s ‘Outcast’ Officially Dead at Cinemax

Robert Kirkman’s ‘Outcast’ Officially Dead at Cinemax
There was only a slim chance that Robert Kirkman’s Outcast could go to a third season, and that is now gone. “There are no further plans for Outcast at this time,” a spokesman for the network said in a statement.

The news comes as a little surprise. Outcast had been on the back burner at Cinemax, with its second season finally airing this summer, two and a half years after it was ordered and about two years after it was produced. The options on the cast have long lapsed, and everyone had moved on.

A few months after Cinemax renewed Outcast for Season 2 in March 2016 ahead of its series premiere, the network overhauled its programming strategy, pulling away from expensive, dark hometown series like Outcast in favor of fun, high-octane, action, pulpy dramas done in a cost-effective way primarily as international co-productions.

Robert Kirkman’s ‘Outcast’ Canceled by Cinemax After 2 Seasons

Robert Kirkman’s ‘Outcast’ Canceled by Cinemax After 2 Seasons
Cinemax has decided to cancel Robert Kirkman’s drama “Outcast” after two seasons.

“There are no further plans for ‘Outcast’ at this time,” said a Cinemax spokesperson.

Cinemax had initially showed strong belief in the series, handing out a second season pickup before it even premiered. But the drama was plagued by a shift in strategy at the network. Season two, which didn’t air until two years after its freshman run, wrapped on Sept. 28.

The pilot, written by Kirkman, landed at Cinemax after it was shopped as a spec and developed at Fox International Channels.

Hollywood Talent Drawn East to Big Projects

Hollywood Talent Drawn East to Big Projects
More Hollywood actors are expected to appear in starring roles in Chinese films as China’s film industry continue to expand, with bigger productions looking to meet international standards and feed the growing appetite for domestic blockbusters.

So far, however, the top Hollywood stars joining the ensemble casts of these blockbusters have almost all been men. Opportunities for Hollywood actresses in China still remain largely unavailable because of the lack of suitable roles and limited genres. Agencies have been pushing for female starring roles, however, and Milla Jovovich has a role in upcoming action-thriller “The Rookies.”

According to Jonah Greenberg, who left his role as head of CAA China in February to launch a Beijing-based development and production company called Salty Pictures, the agency helped Jovovich get the role, originally written as a male. Such a successful gender-switch of a role in a Chinese film to accommodate a Western actress is a first.

‘Outcast’s’ Patrick Fugit & Chris Black Talk Working With Robert Kirkman And Appeal Of Character-Driven Horror

The debut season of “Outcast” was never a ratings juggernaut. However, over time, the series developed a large enough cult following that was large enough to inspire a season 2, albeit, one which premiered overseas before making its return to Cinemax this summer. A horror/drama hybrid that relies heavily on themes of possession and exorcism, all within the confines of an isolated small town, it swiftly establishes its eerie tone, a capable effort that further brings horror to television.
