Evil Season 3 on Paramount+

Evil is a supernatural drama TV series created by Robert and Michelle King. It debuted on CBS on September 26, 2019. The series is produced by CBS Studios and King Size Productions. The first season met with a positive response and soon after the network renewed it for the second season that premiered on June 20, 2021. After a few weeks of the second season premiere, the series was renewed for a third season in July 2021.

The fans have been waiting for the third season to drop on Paramount+. So, here’s everything we know about Evil Season 3 including its release date, plot, cast and more.

Is there a release date for Evil Season 3?

While the second season of Evil saw a significant delay in filming due to the pandemic, the third season is on schedule to premiere in 2022. Series co-creator Robert King tweeted in November 2021 that production had begun, sharing a few behind-the-scenes photos.

Paramount+ announced during a Television Critics Association presentation that “Evil” Season 3 is on track for a release during the summer of 2022. However, the company haven’t revealed the exact release date or month.

How many episodes will be there in the third season? 

The first two seasons consist of 13 episodes each, so one could presume that Season 3 will feature the same amount of episodes. The series follows a weekly air schedule. So, whenever it returns for a new season, we will have 13 weeks of intense supernatural drama.

Who is in the cast of Evil Season 3?

Expect all of the principal characters to return for Season 3. This includes Katja Herbers as Kristen Bouchard, Mike Colter as David Acosta, and Aasif Mandvi as Ben Shakir. Other than these, all series regulars will also return. These are:

  • Kurt Fuller as Dr. Kurt Boggs
  • Marti Matulis as George
  • Brooklyn Shuck as Lynn Bouchard
  • Skylar Gray as Lila Bouchard
  • Maddy Crocco as Lexis Bouchard
  • Dalya Knapp as Laura Bouchard
  • Christine Lahti as Sheryl Luria
  • Michael Emerson as Dr. Leland Townsend
  • Ashley Edner as Abbey
  • Clark Johnson as Father Amara
  • Renee Elise Goldsberry in the role of Renee Harris
  • Andrea Martin in the role of Sister Andrea

Unfortunately, veteran character actor Peter Scolari (who plays Bishop Thomas Marx) passed away while Season 2 was airing. So, he will not be there.

What will be the plot of Evil Season 3?

The series follows Catholic seminarian David Acosta (Mike Colter), forensic psychologist Kristen Bouchard (Katja Herbers), and tech expert Ben Shakir (Aasif Mandvi) as they investigate claims of sinister possession for the Catholic Church.

If we talk about the plot, it focuses on two parts. The first is in which David, Kristen, and Ben investigate supernatural phenomena and evil sides. Besides this, the series follows character-driven storylines.

In the second season, Kristen killed a serial killer (Darren Pettie) who intimidated her daughters in the first season. David is struggling with doubts ahead of his ordination.

They also explore a possible plan to corrupt future generations by tampering with IVF treatments. Season 2 ends with a cliffhanger with David’s ordination and almost immediate revocation of his vows.

So, Season 3 will take the story forward after this exciting cliffhanger. Three of them will dig deeper into new cases and riddles. They will continue to confront their demons all the way.
