Not everyone has Cinemax so in an effort to lure you in and get some buzz going 2 weeks before the official on network premiere, the network has released the first episode of ‘Outcast‘ online for free. If you’ve been wanting to watch Robert Kirkman‘s next comic book adaptation you have to look no further than this page as we’ve got the first episode, “A Darkness Surrounds Him,” embedded for you below!

The series follows Patrick Fugit as Kyle Barnes who is a man that has had to deal with possession all of his life. While he was at times able to sustain a normal life, these possessions have destroyed his relationship with his mother, wife, and daughter. When he returns to his childhood home everything he has dealt with his entire life comes back full force. His sister tries to welcome him back but his life soon gets worse as he finds out that the demons attacking Earth are more of a threat than he thought and he is squarely at the center of it.

You can watch the first episode below!

With ‘Damien’ having just been cancelled and ‘The Exorcist‘ looking to be a flop in the making, ‘Outcast’ is the last bastion for those who enjoy demonic possessions on the small screen. Thankfully, unlike the other two, this one looks as if it might have the staying power to last.

What are your thoughts on the first episode of ‘Outcast’? Do you think this will end up being better or worse than ‘The Walking Dead’? Share your thoughts below!


The series follows Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by possession since he was a child. Now an adult, he embarks on a journey to find answers, but what he uncovers could mean the end of life on Earth as we know it.

‘Outcast’ will officially premiere on June 3, Fridays at 10PM on Cinemax.
