“People think they’re being helpful when they take work away from a mourner. They’re not. I need work more than anything right now.” – Father Ignatius
Ever since the premiere of the final episode, “The Demon of the End,” of the third season, the viewers got to see when the team investigates a household terrorized by a demonic infestation and is shocked when they find out the house is next door to Kristen’s; meanwhile, Kristen is surprised to learn that her frozen egg was never destroyed.

Evil Season 4: When will the new season premiere?
Unfortunately, the new season will not return to the network until January 2023, so fans will have to wait a little longer!
If you recall, in July 2022, the series was renewed for a fourth season, which is not surprising as the show has received critical acclaim, with particular praise for its acting, characters, writing, direction, and cinematography. On the other hand, the third season has a 100% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 10 reviews, with an average rating of 8.50/10. On Metacritic, the third season received a score of 92 based on reviews from 7 critics, indicating “universal acclaim.” In addition to this, the exact release date of the season has not been disclosed yet.
But, if we have to speculate, the season would premiere sometime in the summer of 2023, probably around the months of June or September, and would air weekly on Sundays at the same time slot of 12 a.m. PT/3 a.m. ET exclusively on Paramount+. Furthermore, we would like to emphasize that at this point, this is just conjecture, and the fans should wait for official confirmation. Moreover, the official Twitter handle of the show also confirmed the news among the followers about the series renewal, quoting, “Ready 4 more? #EvilSeries” Take a look at the official announcement below:

Evil Season 4: What to expect in the new season?
Nicole Clemens, president of Paramount+ Original Scripted Series, stated in a statement, “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.” Further adding, “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.” While it’s difficult to predict the exact plot structure of the upcoming season this early on. It’s been anticipated that the next season will pick up any cliffhangers and subplots from the previous seasons and dive right into this world by giving fans something new to look at instead of the same old themes.
We would like to highlight that no additional casting announcements have been made by the network, so the original cast from Season 3 is expected to reprise their roles, which includes Katja Herbers as Kristen Bouchard, Mike Colter as Father David Acosta, Aasif Mandvi as Ben Shakir, Michael Emerson as Dr. Leland Townsend, Christine Lahti as Sheryl Luria, Kurt Fuller as Dr. Kurt Boggs, Brooklyn Shuck as Lynn Bouchard, Skylar Gray as Lila Bouchard, Maddy Crocco as Lexis Bouchard, Dalya Knapp as Laura Bouchard, and Andrea Martin as Sister Andrea. 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.

Evil Season 4: Is there any teaser or trailer?
No, the network has not released any trailers for Evil Season 4, and we don’t anticipate seeing one for a while. But with season 4 confirmed to release this summer, fans should keep an eye out for the first trailer to drop in spring 2023. In the meantime, check out the third season trailer which reflects on a skeptical psychologist, Kristen Bouchard, who joins David Acosta, who is training to be a Catholic priest, and a blue-collar contractor as they investigate the church’s backlog of unexplained mysteries, including supposed miracles, demonic possessions, and other extraordinary occurrences. Their job is to assess if there’s a logical explanation or if something truly supernatural is at work, examining the origins of evil along the dividing line between science and religion. Take a look at the official trailer to recap the events of Evil Season 3 below:
