The Exorcist will be back on Fox after a short hiatus this Friday and it will see Casey, whose story about being possessed has now gone public, missing, and her family believes she has been kidnapped.

The trailer for the episode shows the local police issuing a statement, following which a member of the public questions the murder of nine people in the locality, sparking speculation that all of this could be connected. Is Casey still alive?

The previous episode revealed that The Exorcist is a sequel to the 1973 film. The final moments of the episode titled Through My Most Grievous Fault saw Geena Davis' character Angela Rance revealing she is actually Regan MacNeil, the girl who was possessed in the movie.

Davis had earlier hinted at the series honouring the movie during an interview with reporters at the New York Comic Con in early October.

"I saw [the movie] when I was a teenager and had no clue what I was going to see and was absolutely just traumatized forever -- in a good way," the 60-year-old said. "So, when the script came along and the opportunity came along and it says The Exorcist on it, I'm like, 'Holy crap, this is exciting.' But, also, I was thrilled to see it was not a remake, although it honors that movie and the plot includes hints that it's the same world where that actually did happen... And, so, I love that element of it and I know that fans of the movie are already really loving the show."

The Exorcist airs Fridays at 9 pm ET on Fox. The episode can be watched online on

The synopsis for Chapter Six: Star of the Morning reads: "Casey's story goes public, causing a media frenzy for the Rance family and throwing Father Tomas into the spotlight. Elsewhere: Father Bennett attends a papal planning event and Marcus scours the city's underbelly for answers."
