CBS’s diabolical series, Evil, is making the move to the network’s streaming platform, Paramount+, and has dropped a new teaser in advance of its June 20th premiere.
The series explores the origins and nature of evil at the intersection of religion and science as a skeptical psychologist teams up with a priest-in-training and a contractor to explore the Church’s backlog of cases involving demonic possession, miracles, haunting, and more. Their purpose–to discover whether these occurrences are supernatural or not–leads the trio into the heart of darkness itself.
Though the theme is one we’ve seen in horror before, the show definitely puts its own spin on the concept and has been rewarded with a faithful following.
The series features a talented cast including Katja Herbers (Westworld), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Aasif Mandvi (The Proposal), Michael Emerson (Lost), Christine Lahti (Gone Baby Gone), Kurt Fuller (Supernatural), and Marti Matulis (American Horror Story).
According to Deadline, Evil was moved to the streaming platform along with the David Boreanaz (Bones, Angel) vehicle, SEAL Team, to make room on the broadcast schedule after both series showed potentially stronger numbers on Paramount+ than in primetime.
Evil was created by Robert and Michelle King. The duo previously created The Good Wife and its spin-off series The Good Fight. The Kings serve as executive producers on the show alongside Liz Glotzer and Rockne S. O’Bannon.
