Above: Trailer for ‘Outcast.’
Robert Kirkman, creator of the hit TV show The Walking Dead, sets his sights on more supernatural horror with Cinemax’s Outcast. Now in its 2nd season, Outcast follows Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by possession since he was a child. Now an adult in the small town of Rome, W. Va., he embarks on a journey to search for answers. CalArtian Briana Venskus (Theater BFA 09) joins the cast in a major recurring role in the show’s second season. She plays Officer Nuñez, an up-and-coming officer in the Rome police department.
Variety calls Outcast “a suspense-laden, psychological examination of inner shadows—the undesirable aspects of ourselves that we strive to keep hidden—and the figurative demons constantly flitting around us all.”
Venskus is set to appear in the show for at least four episodes. Her other acting credits include The Walking Dead, Agents of SHIELD and Nashville.
