Why did Paramount+ renew Evil for Season 4?
According to Deadline, “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,” said Nicole Clemens, president, Paramount+ Original Scripted Series, in a statement. “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.”
Evil Season 4 Potential Release Date
As of July 7, 2022, Paramount+ has not yet confirmed the precise release date of Evil Season 4, as only four episodes of the usual ten-episode season are aired from the third season. On the bright side, it appears that the show’s early renewal will result in the timely scheduling and production of the forthcoming season. As the network announced the renewal way before season one comes to a conclusion that is too early to predict.
However, based on the pattern of the season one release dates, we may anticipate that the premiere date for the fourth season will be in the next year. We’d estimate that the release date would be sometime in 2023—probably sometime in or around the month of June or September. Furthermore, we would like to emphasize that at this point, everything is just conjecture. Fans should thus be patient because the network will confirm these facts in the upcoming months, so they should keep a watch on it.
Evil Season 4 Expected Plot
Evil Season 4 is expected to pick up from the finale episode of the third season, which will release on August 14, 2022. The official title and synopsis of the episode is not been released by the network as of July 7, 2022. It will be published once the premiere dates draw close to release in the coming weeks. Moreover, Season three of Evil began moments after the newly ordained priest David (Mike Colter) kissed Kristen (Katie Herbers), his psychologist/partner in crime.
The series also stars Aasif Mandvi (the third member of the investigative team), Michael Emerson, Christine Lahti, Kurt Fuller, Andrea Martin, Brooklyn Shuck, Skylar Gray, Maddy Crocco, and Dalya Knapp. As a result, the pilot episode of Evil Season 4 is intended to follow this already established idea.
While it’s difficult to predict the upcoming season’s exact plot structure this early on. It’s been speculated that the next season would pick up any cliffhangers and subplots and delve right into this world by giving fans something different to look at instead of the same old themes just like the prior seasons. Considering the four episodes, we don’t know how the season will end.
Viewers and critics from all around the world have thus far given the reception a positive review. Consequently, the series will entice viewers to watch it when it airs on television or on a streaming service. So, it will be interesting to see how they deal with this added pressure and introduce something new to the series for a satisfactory conclusion to season three.

Evil is produced by CBS Studios in association with King Size Productions. The Kings are executive producers, along with Liz Glotzer, Rockne S. O’Bannon, and Nelson McCormick. The series is distributed internationally by Paramount Global Content Distribution.
