*Just in time for “fright night,” IFC’s thriller series, Stan Against Evil is back. Created by Dana Gould (The Simpsons) and starring John C. McGinley (Scrubs) and Janet Varney, Stan’s Season 3 premieres tonight, Wednesday, October 31 at 10PM, with two back-to-back episodes.
Stan Against Evil stars McGinley as Stan Miller, the curmudgeonly retired police sheriff of Willard’s Mill, and Varney as Evie Barrett, the current sheriff determined to wipe out the demons that plague their town of Willard’s Mill. 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.
The new season 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 as demonstrated during this scene from EUR’s set visit when we caught the magic in action:
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. New and returning guest stars this season include Scott Adsit, Maria Bamford, Matt Braunger, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Eddie Pepitone.
