The cable channel Cinemax has ordered a full 10-episode first season of Outcast, an adaptation of Robert (The Walking Dead) Kirkman’s Image Comics series of the same name.  Cinemax moved quickly to develop the series after acquiring the rights only last November to the paranormal property about a young man who attempts to discover why he has been possessed by demons since he was a child (see "Kirkman's Outcast to Cinemax").

Patrick Fugit (Gone Girl) heads a cast that also includes Phillip Glenister, Gabriel Bateman, Wrenn Schmidt, Julia Crockett, and Kip Pardue (see "'Outcast' Cast").  The first graphic novel collection of the Outcast comic, which was written by Kirkman and drawn by Paul Azaceta, was the #2 bestselling graphic novel in the direct market in January (see "Marvel Kills It in Big January").

Variety notes that no date has been set yet for the premiere of the Cinemax Outcast TV series.
