The creator of the series, the Exorcist reveals what we were expecting in the season 3
Even if we were not really surprised, the confirmation of the cancellation of the series, the Exorcist makes us a little sad. Because, despite many flaws, it was one of the few current series to address topics much ambivalent to the tv.
But right now, what do you want, the hard law of the jungle is omnipresent on television and if the audience does not respond in mass to a program, the program is cancelled. And unfortunately this is what happened with The Exorcist, the series that do not attract a sufficient audience to survive for a third season.
We got the confirmation a few days ago and, direct, and Jeremy Slater, the creator of the show, had responded by asking the fans not to blame to the Fox, who had already agreed to fund a second season despite good economic sense. And this second season ended on a promising disastrous for the rest of the adventure with one last scene which suggested that much of a threat evil was making its appearance.
As we’ll never see season 3, Jeremy Slater has, therefore, enabled there is very little time to engage with the website Bloody Disgusting on this subject, especially in order to reveal what this new bunch of episodes should we book :
“For me, it was necessary that Marcus and Tomas are separated during the first half of the season, because this allowed us to assume the time jump that occurs at the end of season 2. I wanted that Father Bennett, who is embedded with the demon in season 2, to become the new big bad. So, season 3 had to be shared between two timelines different, at least in one of its parts.
In the party flashback, Tomas and Marcus would have joined forces with Bennett to go to Rome without knowing that their former friend is past the side of Evil. In this, Bennett would be off in search of Tomas, which would have disappeared. I don’t know if we would have been able to focus on the family aspect of the series, or if this season was focused around Marcus, Tomas and Mouse trying to save the soul of Bennett, even if in my opinion it would have been a combination of the two. But the idea of doing a season at the Memento would have made a change very pleasant from a creative point of view.”
Some very interesting ideas and that it is clear, would change much in the dynamics. But Slater still keep under the elbow, just in case :
“I still have other ideas and twists for this season, but I prefer to keep it to myself, in the case where the series found a new home. It is not earned, but it has already fought once, so it should never say never. And if that happens, I would like terribly to have it all revealed. But the real reason is that all these ideas do not really exist when one brings together authors in a room and that we think about it”
So we can only wish him that another network is trying the adventure because, mine de rien, there remains a little on our hunger and the avenues mentioned here are more than interesting.
