- On William Friedkin's passing, writer and film critic Ed Whitfield posted this on Twitter(X) and Facebook : "William Friedkin once said to me, 'Ed, the guy who made those new Halloween sequels is about to make one to my movie, the Exorcist. That's right, my signature film is about to be extended by the man who made Pineapple Express. I don't want to be around when that happens. But if there's a spirit world, and I can come back, I plan to possess David Gordon Green and make his life a living hell.'"
- Ellen Burstyn had turned down reprising her role and was then offered double the salary. Burstyn thought, "I feel like the devil is asking my price." She eventually accepted, using the salary to fund an MFA scholarship for actors at Pace University where the Actors Studio teaches the program. Burstyn is a lifelong member of the Actors Studio and a co-president.
- Ellen Burstyn stated in an interview shortly before filming began that she accepted the offer to return solely for the money, which she donated to her charity.
- Linda Blair, Regan in the original 1973 film, was an advisor on set to the actresses portraying the possessed girls in this film.
- Blumhouse spent $400 million to secure the filming rights, and on top of that had to guarantee a trilogy. Even if Believer bombs at the box office, the next two films still have to be made.
- At the beginning of the movie, a small sculpted creature can be seen in Angela's room. This is the same creature Regan drew with wings in the first movie (1973).
- It was briefly rumored during production that William Friedkin was involved with this film. Friedkin immediately tweeted, "That's not a rumor, that's a lie." He further elaborated there was "not enough money or motivation in the world" to make him work on the film in any capacity.
- Film Critic Mark Kermode, whose all-time favorite film is The Exorcist (1973) which he credits for making him pursue film criticism as a career, called the scene in which Chris McNeill attempts to exorcise the possessed girl to be "one of the film's touchstone stupid scenes in which the most notoriously shocking scene from the original 'Exorcist' is turned into a stabbing 'Punch and Judy' pantomime which at least means that Burstyn won't have to witness anything further and gets to have a little bit of a lie-down."
- The Exorcist (1973) was followed by The Exorcist (2016) on Fox, one which acts as a direct sequel to the original movie and ignores the others in the series. Despite widespread critical acclaim, Fox canceled the series after its second season. David Gordon Green revealed in an interview prior to the release that this film, unlike the TV series and his Halloween trilogy, will not erase the continuity or what has been established in later sequels.
- Donna Langley of Universal, spearheaded the push for a partnership between NBCUniversal and Peacock, with an aggressive bid for the Exorcist trilogy. As reported by The New York Times, the price of the mega-deal came out to the tune of more than $400 million.
- Although the demon's name is not revealed in the film (much like how Pazuzu was not officially named in the Exorcist films until Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977), though William Peter Blatty identified him in the novel), the end credits identify it as Lamashtu. In Mesopotamian mythology, Lamashtu is a demonic figure that preys on pregnant women during childbirth to feed on the newborn infants. Her sworn enemy is none other than Pazuzu, who, despite being a bringer of famine, can be invoked to protect against Lamashtu.
- There is 50 years between the 1973 film and the 2023 sequel.
- The rumor of a remake was based on this sentence in an article published in Deadline in early 2020: "Current Morgan Creek projects include Stay Tuned at AMC, with a planned theatrical reboot of The Exorcist in the works for 2021." But Morgan Creek hadn't confirmed that news as of Sept. 8, 2020. They also posted a tweet in 2015 promising they would never attempt to remake it.
- Upon release of The Exorcist (1973), its screenwriter/producer William Peter Blatty, was adamant the audience know that good triumphed over evil telling its director, "I don't want (the audience) to think the devil won."
- The Exorcist: Believer is intended to be the first of three new The Exorcist films.
- Due to Taylor Swift's Eras Tour Concert film coming out on October 13th, The Exorcist will now be coming out October 6th.
- The camera that Victor uses in the 2010 scenes at the beginning of the movie is an Olympus OM-1 , SLR, 35mm Film camera, first introduced in 1972, the same year that the original Exorcist film was in production.
- The Exorcist: Believer will initially only be playing exclusively in theaters. However, once its theatrical window closes, it will be available to stream exclusively on Universal's streaming service Peacock.
- In the first classroom scene, the class are watching a dramatised version of Edgar Allen Poes "The Raven"
- Nothing in this movie contradicts anything in the previous films in this series (it only contradicts the television series by having Chris, who was killed in the series, being alive here without any explanation).
- All 3 actors that play the parents of the girls have a singing background. Jennifer Nettles (Catherine's mom) is part of the country duo Sugarland, as well as a country solo artist. Leslie Odom Jr (Angela's dad) & Norbert Leo Butz (Catherine's dad) are both Broadway stars.
