Evil Season 3 Paramount+

Paramount+ wants another season of Evil. Per Deadline, the critically-acclaimed supernatural horror series has officially been renewed for season 4. The news comes as Evil is in the midst of its third season which premiered on the streaming platform in June. Renewing the series was a no-brainer for Paramount+ with a statement from the streamer confirming the news and touting the show’s high viewership and perfect score at Rotten Tomatoes for season 3.

Evil continues to expand its fanbase of both critics and viewers alike. Season three currently has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and it is a consistent top five most-watched original series and acquisition driver for the service,” says Paramount+ Original Scripted Series president Nicole Clemens. “We couldn’t be more excited to be terrified by what Robert and Michelle create for season four with our outstanding cast bringing it to life.”

The stars of Evil don’t particularly view the series as a horror series. This is because of the show’s writing that differentiates it from other titles in the genre. In an interview with CBR to speak about season 3, Katja Herbers explained why she doesn’t really view the series as a horror show, and it’s something that Mike Colter completely agrees with.

“We have this procedural element, but then it’s also serialized, and you dive deeper into who these people are and their relationships with each other,” Herbers said. “It all becomes more complicated. So yeah, I don’t look at it as a horror show at all, actually, or a supernatural show. I kind of look at it as this weird, kooky world that these people that you follow are in. We’re kind of in a genre overall, but I don’t really feel comfortable saying that we’re any one thing.”

“My view is very similar,” Colter added. “I don’t look at [Evil] as a genre show. I don’t look at it as a horror. I don’t look at it as a supernatural show. I look at it as a guy who’s trying to become a priest and [trying] to find a purpose in his life. He’s sort of in love with this coworker who he can’t have, and he doesn’t know what to do with that. David is just trying to figure out his life, and his life happens to be within the confines of this unusual world with an unusual set of circumstances that have had very high stakes attached to it. As soon as you can sort of boil it down and simplify… it’s easier for us as performers, and hopefully for the audience, to connect with.”
