As a rule, the horror shows are a domain of cable networks, so it's always curious when a national broadcaster releases another series of the genre. Thus, talking about Evil, a new supernatural horror show, which premiered in September on CBS, we willy-nilly compare it to other horror thrillers on cable. Yet we should admit that Evil seems to be out of ordinary, versus other supernatural thrillers ever broadcasted on CBS. And no doubt you are wondering whether there will be Evil Season 2.
Well, in our opinion, Evil Season 2 is due to happen, and below is our forecast on the subject. Unlike any media outlet, our assumptions are based on the statistics, so in most cases we were right. So, we suggest you learn some data to figure out why we suppose that Evil Season 2 is just a matter of time since, to date, there has been no official confirmation of renewal.
The first thing we want you to take into account is that Evil has attracted enough viewers. Thus, Evil Season 1 premiere has garnered 4.56 million viewers with a 0.6/4 key demo/share among adults (P18-49), and such amount of viewers is more than enough for a further decision on renewal, even when we're talking about such a national network as CBS is. The viewership thereby plays in favor of renewal, especially, given the a sophomore episode titled "177 Minutes," which has drawn just 7.85% less viewers (4.20 million) in comparison with the series premiere. Well, the television ratings look steady, so what about a reception?
According to various media aggregators, we may conclude that Evil has received the universal acclaim. On Rotten Tomatoes, Evil Season 1 holds a score of 7.52/10 and a 86% approval rating from critics, while viewers have given a 92% rating with an average score of 4.3/5. Not bad, isn't it? If we take a look at Metacritic, according to their statistics, Evil Season 1 keeps a score of 75/100 and 6.8/10, among critics/viewers, respectively. And finally, on IMDb, Evil has a rating of 7.7/10 based on over 1,000 votes.
Summing up, we don't know how to explain what makes Evil so special, but this show is no doubt an outsider on CBS, in our opinion. All indications are that there must be at least one more season of Evil on CBS. Of course, today, we have no official announcement of Evil Season 2, but we're confident that it will follow soon. All we need to right now is keep waiting for the official news from CBS. We, in our turn, are tracking down all the reports which arrive from CBS to inform you about the latest data on the subject.
Evil Season 2 Release Date
Well, now you know why we believe that Evil Season 2 is just a matter of time. But when should we expect the Evil Season 2 premiere in such a case? Unfortunately, there are no data on how many episodes the 1st season of the horror series consists of. If we had the figure, we might foresee the almost exact date. So, since we don't have such data, all we can do is just relying on the schedule of other shows on CBS.
In such a case, we have two possible scenarios. In the best case scenario, we might expect Evil Season 2 already next summer. However, in the worst, if we're talking about the full 24-26-episode season, its production could take a year or even more. Therefore, in such a case, the likely period for the premiere is the next fall. We thereby might expect Evil Season 2 in September 2020, given the current schedule of the series.
But still, this is only our forecast. Of course, our goal is to keep tracking down all the official news from CBS. As soon as the broadcaster announces the renewal or even a specific release date for Evil Season 2, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
The story centers on Dr. Kristen Bouchard, a skeptical female forensic psychologist who joins a priest-in-training and a carpenter in order to reveal the truth hidden behind a local Church, which hides a series of unexplained mysteries. As a result, the primary goal of the show's protagonists is to evaluate is there any scientific or at least a logical interpretation of the supernatural events that were taking place in this spot, or something truly sinister is happening in the Church and surroundings. Evil premiered on September 26, 2019, on CBS. The supernatural series is created and executive produced by Robert and Michelle King.
