HBO’s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Outsider was a hit on HBO and with stars like Jason Bateman (Game Night Horrible Bosses), Ben Mendelsohn (ROGUE ONE), and Cynthia Erivo (BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE) you can’t go wrong with casting great actors and actresses in this show. Arrow In The Head confirms today that Jason Bateman gave a little insight on how season 2 of The Outsider is coming along.
Batman said the following: Well I know that they’re talking about it and Richard Price is playing with some ideas and taking some first steps as to what that second year might and feel like. Obviously, it’s a complete free-ball because the first season exhausted 100% of (Stephen King’s) book, the IP. So, it’s really all up to him. I never like to step on the lawn of the writers.
You can own the complete first season of the Outsider on Blu Ray and DVD in June. The features for the Blu Ray and DVD as follows you get all 10 episodes from season one, the release also features over 40 minutes of behind-the-scenes bonus content including the all-new featurette EL CUCO. THE BABA YAGA. THE OUTSIDER.
Plot synopsis: When 11-year-old Frankie Peterson’s body is found mutilated in the Georgia woods, police detective Ralph Anderson (Ben Mendelsohn) sets out to investigate – with eyewitnesses and physical evidence pointing to Terry Maitland (Jason Bateman), a popular high school teacher, Little League coach, doting husband and father. While the case appears ironclad, Ralph is baffled by the emergence of contradictory evidence that places his suspect in a neighboring city at the time of the murder. The mysterious set of circumstances surrounding this horrifying crime leads Ralph, a seasoned cop still grieving the recent death of his own son, to bring in unorthodox private investigator Holly Gibney (Cynthia Erivo), whose uncanny abilities he hopes will help explain the unexplainable.
The cast of THE OUTSIDER includes Ben Mendelsohn (READY PLAYER ONE), Cynthia Erivo (HARRIET), Bill Camp (THE NIGHT OF), Mare Winningham (AMERICAN HORROR STORY), Paddy Considine (HOT FUZZ), Julianne Nicholson (MARE OF EAST TOWN), Yul Vázquez (BAD BOYS II), Jeremy Bobb (UNDER THE SILVER LAKE) and Marc Menchaca (THE SINNER), with Jason Bateman (The Ozark’s).
