Evil Season 3 Release Date, Cast, And Teaser - What We Know So Far

Evil is back.

Much like a demon that just won't die, "Evil" has slithered its way back into the public consciousness on multiple occasions. While the supernatural drama series originally aired on CBS, it soon moved over to become a Paramount+ original starting with its second season. It seems its fanbase didn't have a problem tracking down the show's new home, as "Evil" was promptly renewed for a third season. For those of you who don't mind taking a trip to the dark side, it will be here before you know it to terrify and haunt you.

"Evil" Season 3 will kick off right where Season 2 left off. Not only do Kristen (Katja Herbers) and David (Mike Colter) have to navigate their newfound feelings for one another, but they also have to deal with David getting involved with the mysterious "entity." What else can you expect from the latest installment of this procedural with a twist? Here's everything we know so far about "Evil" Season 3.

What's the release date for Evil Season 3?

The higher-ups at Paramount must've had a ton of confidence in "Evil" right from the start. Season 2 of the series premiered in June of 2021, and a month into its run, the studio announced the series would return for a third season. It was good news for fans who could watch the remainder of Season 2 with the full confidence this story would continue, and it looks like the series will stick with its prime summer slot. 

Courtesy of a recent teaser to promote the upcoming season, fans now know Season 3 of "Evil" will drop on Paramount+ on June 12, 2022. As opposed to some other streaming services, Paramount+ prefers to release shows on a weekly model. That means you'll be able to catch new episodes on at a time every Sunday starting on June 12. 

Paramount+ has various tiers depending on how you want to watch. There's a more affordable plan that costs $4.99/month that comes with ads. But if you want a commercial-free experience, you can upgrade to the plan costing $9.99/month. There's a seven-day free trial, as well, so you can see what else the platform has to offer outside of "Evil."

Who's in the cast for Evil Season 3?

No casting announcements have come out so far about any new additions to the "Evil" cast, but audiences should expect all of their favorite principals to return. That includes Katja Herbers and Mike Colter as Dr. Kristen Bouchard and David Acosta, respectively. Rounding out the central trio is Ben Shakir (Aasif Mandvi), who's the team's most stalwart skeptic. The three of them went on quite a journey throughout Season 2, particularly Ben, who's finding it harder than ever to find rational explanations for the phenomena he's witnessed. Additionally, David's having his own share of troubles as he questions whether he truly wants to join the priesthood. 

Other cast members who will return for Season 3 include Michael Emerson as Dr. Leland Townsend, Kurt Fuller as Dr. Kurt Boggs, Brooklyn Shuck as Lynn Bouchard, Christine Lahti as Sheryl Luria, Andrea Martin as Sister Andrea, Dalya Knapp as Laura Bouchard, Maddy Crocco as Lexis Bouchard, and Skylar Gray as Lila Bouchard.

Where's the Evil Season 3 teaser trailer?

Like a good riddle, the teaser for "Evil" Season 3 doesn't give away much. Instead of being a full trailer to give us a glimpse into any overarching plotlines going into the new season, it instead consists of a series of disconnected scenes without anything directly tying into anything else. It opens with Dr. Kristen Bouchard walking ominously down a hallway, entering the bathroom, and finding something you never want to see in a toilet. 

But it's not all doom and gloom in the teaser. "Evil" is a show that knows how to balance its supernatural and horror elements with comedy, too. There's a rather funny scene that follows the opener before we get into a montage of terror-filled sequences. Plenty of people were thankful to finally get a trailer for the next season, including one YouTube user who wrote, "More people need to jump on this series ASAP!!! It's funnier and smarter than 85% of stuff out there! Worth the Paramount+ subscription alone!"

With a ringing endorsement like that, you may need to make a binge-watch of the first two seasons of "Evil" a priority.
