Fans of “Stan Against Evil” can count on another season of the popular horror-comedy series on IFC. The network confirmed this week that the series has been picked up for a third season, currently scheduled to premiere in the Fall 2018.

If you haven’t given the series a test-run yet, you certainly should this holiday weekend. The show was created by Dana Gould (The Simpsons, Parks and Recreation) and stars John C. McGinley (Scrubs) and Janet Varney (You’re The Worst). Stan Against Evil has grown its dedicated fan base since originally debuting in 2016, and usually hits the small-screen just in time for Halloween.

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.

Season 2 concluded in November 2017 with Stan Miller (McGinley) and Sheriff Evie Barret (Varney) accidentally opening a portal into the past, allowing the 17th century demons to create new mayhem in their quaint town of Willard’s Mill.

Stan Against Evil is created, written and executive produced by Dana Gould, with Tom Lassally (Silicon Valley) also serving as executive producer. RadicalMedia (My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, MARS) produces the series with Frank Scherma and Justin Wilkes executive producing. Star John C. McGinley also serves as a producer. Deborah Baker Jr. and Nate Mooney co-star.
