The horror-comedy follows Stan Miller (John C. McGinley), a perpetually disgruntled former sheriff who teams up with his replacement to fight off demons in a quaint New England town. Janet Varney, Nate Mooney, Deborah Baker Jr., Mick Ignis, and Danielle Phelan also star.
In the interview, Gould revealed he has plans for a second season of Stan Against Evil:
[The second season] is going to be The Search for Spock. If you remember when Spock dies at the end of Wrath of Khan, and he put his, whatever they called it, juju into McCoy at the beginning of the movie, and McCoy was walking around hearing Spock in his head all the time. That’s what it’s going to be. The connection between Stan and Evie is so strong that he either thinks that he’s insane, he’s crazy and the world is right or the world is crazy and he’s right. That’s what he has to figure out.”
He also said he has plans to continue telling different kinds of stories:
No, I still want to do monster of the week. I find the mythology episodes, by and large, aren’t as funny, because they don’t give you the ability to be as funny as the standalones. Episode 6 is a standalone. Well, I guess it’s not a standalone. I guess it’s a mythology show. If Eccles is in it, it’s a mythology show. I think it’s both. The beauty of the show is it allows me to do, like yeah, I’m going to do my Search for Spock episode, now I’m going to do my Night of the Living Dead episode, I want to do an episode that’s basically All of Me where Evie is very strongly in Stan. I think it gives us a lot of opportunity to tell a lot of different kinds of stories in this very compact canvas.”
IFC has not yet announced a renewal for Stan Against Evil. Season one ratings were not high, with the average viewership around 179,000 and the 18-49 demo rating at .07.
