The IFC horror-comedy “Stan Against Evil” will kickoff Season 3 on October 31 at 10pm. The series stars John C. McGinley as the retired police sheriff Stan Miller, and Janet Varney as Evie Barrett. The duo will set out once again to destroy the demons that plague their quaint New England Town.
The series will feature quite a few guest stars in the third season, which is currently in production in Atlanta. Season 3 will return with eight all-new episodes; “Stan Against Evil” is created by Dana Gould and produced by RadicalMedia.
Scott Adsit (Big Hero 6, 30 Rock) is joining the third-season as Bill, an apathetic demon-plumber who becomes intertwined with the Miller household. Maria Bamford (Lady Dynamite, Arrested Development) will play Nurse Pickles, a stern, no-nonsense nurse who may not be as helpful as she seems. Matt Braunger (Agent Carter, Up All Night) is taking on the role of Dr. Barlow, an earnest, academic-type surgeon at the local hospital. Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad, Neighbors) will play Zach, a character in a popular fictional vampire show who makes a connection with Stan’s daughter Denise, and Eddie Pepitone (Old School, The Muppets) will play Lenny, a balding, middle-aged townie who, in a prior life, dressed up as a gorilla for local birthday parties.
Deborah Baker Jr. and Nate Mooney return to co-star as Denise Miller, Stan’s absent-minded, do-good daughter, and Deputy Leon Drinkwater, Evie’s right-hand man, respectively. David Koechner also returns to guest star as Kenny, Evie’s self-absorbed, oblivious ex-husband.
Season 3 picks up immediately after the events of the Season 2 finale, with Stan and Evie back in Willard’s Mill dealing with the consequences of Stan traveling through time to save his dead wife Claire. In doing so, he inadvertently opened a portal between the Land of the Living and the Land of the Dead…allowing evil forces to truly take over the town and even some of its inhabitants. Although always the skeptic at first, Stan must work with Evie to once more save the town – even if it means making a literal deal with the devil.
Stan Against Evil is created, written and executive produced by Dana Gould, with Tom Lassally also serving as executive producer. RadicalMedia produces the series with Frank Scherma and Justin Wilkes executive producing. Star John C. McGinley also serves as a producer. Stan Against Evil Seasons 1 and 2 are available to watch on iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay and Xbox.
Season 1 is available to stream on Hulu and will be joined by Season 2 in August.
