'The Exorcist' Makes Major Casting Changes, Will Lose Geena Davis And Others

With the somewhat surprising renewal of The Exorcist comes some not-so-surprising cast changes for the sophomore run. The three priests, Alfonso Herrera, Kurt Egyiawan and Ben Daniels will of course be returning, but they will be moving on to a new possession — which means the Rance family won't return. Geena Davis, Alan Ruck, Brianne Howey and Hannah Kasulka are leaving.

Signs of changes first popped up when Howey was signed to co-star with Mark-Paul Gosselaar in the new vampire drama pilot The Passage.

The goal of Season 1 was to tell a complete story from beginning to end, according to executive producer Jeremy Slater, but he doesn't rule out members of the Rance family returning for guest appearances.
