Horror drama Evil renewed for a second season at CBS
After less than a month since the series had its debut in September, CBS has officially renewed their supernatural horror drama Evil for a second season which is set to premiere during the network’s 2020-2021 schedule. Starring Katja Herbers (Westworld) as Kristen Bouchard, and Mike Colter (Luke Cage) as David Acosta, the series will return tomorrow with the fifth episode titled “October 31.”
The next episode’s official synopsis reads “On Halloween night, Kristen and David are sent to assess an exorcism; Ben goes on his favorite show, where he debunks supernatural finds with fellow unbeliever Vanessa.”
Evil is a psychological mystery series about the battle between science and religion. It focuses on Kristen Bouchard (Herbers), a skeptical female clinical psychologist who joins David Acosta (Colter), a Catholic priest-in-training, and a blue-collar contractor as they investigate supposed miracles, demonic possessions, and other extraordinary occurrences to see if there’s a scientific explanation or if something truly supernatural is at work.
Colter’s Dacosta is tasked by the Church to assess unexplained phenomena to see if there is a supernatural or scientific explanation, while Emerson will play the seemingly kind and trustworthy Townsend, a witness in a mass murder case who may actually be hiding an evil side that pushes his followers to acts of violence and murder.
Evil also stars Michael Emerson (Person of Interest) as Leland Townsend, Aasif Mandvi as Ben Shroff, Brooklyn Shuck as Lynn Bouchard, Skylar Gray as Lila Bouchard, Maddy Crocco as Lexis Bouchard and Dalya Knapp as Laura Bouchard.
The series is created and executive produced by The Good Wife duo Robert and Michelle King with Robert King directing the pilot. King Size Productions president Liz Glotzer also serves as an executive producer.
New episode airs every Thursdays, exclusively on CBS.
