In a bold move by CBS today, the network renewed all five of their freshman dramas, including the supernatural drama, EVIL.
The CBS Television Network announced today that it has rewarded all five series from its top-rated freshman class with new production orders.
The critically acclaimed new drama EVIL has been renewed for a second season in 2020-2021. EVIL will conclude its 13-episode first season on Jan. 30, 2020.
EVIL, created by Michelle and Robert King, has been a solid ratings performer on Thursdays, averaging over 7.1 million viewers each week.
EVIL is a psychological mystery that examines the origins of evil along the dividing line between science and religion. The series focuses on a skeptical female psychologist who joins a priest-in-training and a contractor as they investigate the Church’s backlog of unexplained mysteries, including supposed miracles, demonic possessions, and hauntings. Their job is to assess if there is a logical explanation or if something truly supernatural is at work. The series stars Katja Herbers, Mike Colter, Aasif Mandvi, Michael Emerson, Christine Lahti, Kurt Fuller, Brooklyn Shuck, Skylar Gray, Maddy Crocco, and Dalya Knapp. Michelle King, Robert King, and Liz Glotzer are executive producers for CBS Television Studios. It airs Thursdays (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
