Something evil this way comes. Fans of the dark Paramount+ series, Evil, can rejoice. The wait for more of the show is over. In its newest teaser trailer, Evil sets the scene for its third season and sets its release date. If the new teaser, barely thirty seconds long, is anything to go by, this season will have more chills, twists, and stomach-churning scares than ever.
Take a look at Evil season three’s teaser trailer.
That’s right. Toilets overflowing with blood, check. Scratches on the wall, check. And… a forked tongue licking its way along skin… Check. Yep, it looks like everything is in its right place. Paramount+ doesn’t give any further details about Evil’s upcoming season in its description. But according to Deadline, “Season three of Evil begins moments after the end of season two.” For those who haven’t watched season two yet, look away now.
The horrors in Evil’s teaser do send chills up our spine. But we know some of the drama will feel closer to home. In Evil’s season two finale, fans saw David, newly ordained as a priest, so Father David, if you will, and Kristin kiss. Well, that’s a pickle.
Co-showrunner Michelle King shared with TVLine more about the fallout. She noted that exploring the “sinful” intimacy is “something we want to explore in Season 3, very much. If a priest… possibly has sinned, how does that impact his ability to do his work?” A fascinating question. Although, one could argue that the characters on Evil have bigger problems.
For those not yet caught up, here’s Evil’s overall synopsis:
Evil is a psychological mystery that examines the origins of evil along the dividing line between science and religion. The series focuses on a skeptical female psychologist who joins a priest-in-training and a contractor as they investigate the Church’s backlog of unexplained mysteries, including supposed miracles, demonic possessions, and hauntings. Their job is to assess if there is a logical explanation or if something truly supernatural is at work.
The show stars Katja Herbers, Mike Colter and Aasif Mandvi. If you haven’t been watching along, catch up now on Paramount+. Evil season three premieres on June 12.
