Deadline is reporting that Zuleikha Robinson has signed on to join The Exorcist as a series regular for the upcoming second season.
The second season is set to follow Father Tomas Ortega and newly collarless Marcus Keane heading out beyond Chicago, searching out evil. Across the Atlantic meanwhile, Father Bennett attempts to weed out those within the Vatican who have turned against God. Ultimately the two men are led to a former child psychologist who runs a group home for five at-risk foster children on a secluded private island off the coast of Seattle. When one of the children under Andrew’s case is targeted by a powerful force, the two priests head west, setting themselves on a collision course with Hell.
Zuleikha Robinson (whose credits include LOST and The Following) will be playing the role Mouse, a mysterious figure waging her own private war against the Catholic patriarchy. Mysterious and pragmatic, Mouse takes her duty seriously, but in the end, she’s loyal to only herself.
