The Exorcist is already dead to the cancellation reaper, but FOX chief Dana Walden refuses to rule out a second season of the horror series, or baseball drama Pitch, telling Deadline “both are very much in the conversation”:
“Not sure. Exorcist actually improved our time period on Friday night by about 35% and it’s an interesting opportunity.
Of the two, Walden places more weight on Pitch‘s survival discussions:
[The Exorcist is] never going to be a big ratings winner because of the serialized nature but I thought the show was really good and it was very consistent. Pitch? Bigger conversation.”
Are Exorcist and Pitch in a face-off for the same renewal spot? Or are both shows already long dead? Stay tuned…
