Evil season 2 reveals premiere date and chilling teaser trailer
Exorcisms, blood on the wall, and even more monsters — season 2 of Evil is promising a devilishly wild ride.
The supernatural drama has revealed it will arrive on Paramount+ on June 20. It also released a teaser trailer on Sunday night featuring Katja Herbers, Mike Colter, Aasif Mandvi, Michael Emerson, and more of its stars.
Created by The Good Fight's Michelle and Robert King, the metaphysical thriller follows forensic psychologist Kristen Bouchard (Herbers) as she teams up with priest-in-training David Acosta (Colter) and skeptical handyman Ben Shakir (Mandvi) to investigate supernatural phenomena like demonic possession and miracles. Evil also stars Emerson as Leland Townsend, Kurt Fuller as Dr. Kurt Boggs, and Christine Lahti as Sheryl Luria.
The show's shocking season 1 finale heavily implied that Kristen murdered a serial killer who was stalking her family and might be possessed. Season 1 averaged 6.29 million viewers and found an even bigger audience once it hit Netflix last fall.
Evil's second season will pick up with the dangling thread of Kristen's possible corruption and introduce even more supernatural beings (season 1 featured a few demons that may or may not have been real).
"This season has like an avenging angel character that is supposedly good, but talks in terms of evil — evil in terms of killing millions of people and so on," Robert King said during the show's New York Comic-Con panel in October. "There is a character named Abby, who is a version of George. We have, I would say, five or six new scary things this year."
At Comic-Con, the cast also debuted a homemade season 2 trailer, as the series was in limbo at CBS for a while. Evil will now join the Kings' The Good Fight on Paramount+, as will David Boreanaz's SEAL Team. The show is currently in production in New York.
