Using Deidre and Drake, Lisa and the Black cast (and yes, Ben and Ciara, sigh) when they move to Peacock is no coincidence. To me it indicates someone involved is looking to the future and the modern demographics, which network daytime simply doesn't do.
As both an Exorcist and Halloween superfan, I have mixed feelings about Green applying his successful Halloween revival formula (revival, trilogy, return of major star, etc) to as prestigious a film as The Exorcist - the two franchises are apples and oranges. That being said, I never thought I'd see Ellen Burstyn return, and the last film entry in the series was dreadful. (William Peter Blatty's Exorcist III, OTOH, is excellent) So this is interesting.
The two-season Fox TV show with Geena Davis, Sharon Gless (in Burstyn's role), John Cho and Ben Daniels is also underrated and pretty good.
