IFC’s ‘Stan Against Evil’ will carry on the good fight for another season, as the hit horror spoof has been renewed for a third series. The series follows the exploits of retired sheriff Stan Miller, played by John C. McGinley, who must join forces with the new sheriff of their small New England town of Willard’s Mill, which was built on the site of an ancient witch burning. Janet Varney plays Evie Barret, the new sheriff, who works with Stan to battle demons, spirits and witches. They are assisted by Deputy Leon Drinkwater (Nate Mooney) and Stan’s daughter Denise (Deborah Baker Jr.). The series was created by Dana Gould who also writes and executive produces. (He also appears as Kevin the gravedigger.)
The first season premiered on Halloween 2016, with the second premiering on November 1, 2017. Presumably, the third will arrive around the same time this fall.
In the season two finale, Stan and Barret accidentally opened a portal to the past, allowing 17th century ghosts to run rampant in the present.
Stan Against Evil follows Stan Miller, the perpetually disgruntled former sheriff of a small New England town, and Evie Barret, his younger, more spirited successor, and how the two are forced into an unlikely alliance upon realizing their sleepy little town is the subject of a 300-year-old demonic curse. Willard’s Mill, it turns out, was the sight of a massive 17th century witch burning and as such, Stan and Evie are forced into battle against demons, witches, haunted ponies, giant piglets, evil babies, you name it, all while trying to bridge their chasm-wide personal differences.
