Despite minuscule ratings which would have seen it cancelled elsewhere, IFC renewed its Stan Against Evil TV show for a second season. The cable network is known for its quirky, cult programming, but at some point, even artists have to pay the rent. How long can this TV series survive with such low numbers? Will Stan Against Evil be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned.
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 two include Denise Boutte, Jeffrey Combs, David Koechner, Patty McCormack, and Steven Ogg. Set in the seemingly quaint but haunted small town of Willard’s Mill, New Hampshire, the story centers on disgruntled former sheriff Stan Miller (McGinley). In the second season, a reluctant Stan has to investigate the disappearance of his replacement, Sheriff Evie Barret (Varney), who — in the season one finale — found herself stranded in the year 1692, where she was convicted of witchcraft and sentenced to being burned at the stake. **Update below.
