The ratings for IFC’s Stan Against Evil TV show have been darned microscopic. This small cable network (which is owned by the larger AMC Networks) seems more committed to producing programming it finds worthwhile than Nielsen ratings bait. After its third season, will this quirky TV series still fill the bill? Will Stan Against Evil be cancelled or renewed for season four? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An IFC horror-comedy from creator Dana Gould, Stan Against Evil stars John C. McGinley, Janet Varney, Nate Mooney, and Deborah Baker Jr. Guest stars in season three include Scott Adsit, Maria Bamford, Matt Braunger, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Eddie Pepitone. Set in a seemingly quaint but haunted New Hampshire village, the story centers on disgruntled former sheriff Stan Miller (McGinley). This installment kicks off right after last season’s finale, when Stan traveled through time to save his dead wife, which opened a portal between the Land of the Living and the Land of the Dead. Now he and Evie (Varney) must deal with the evil forces taking over Willard’s Mill — which could involve making a deal with the devil.
