The Stan Against Evil season 3 trailer is here. IFC debuted the trailer at San Diego Comic-Con and promptly released it online for those who couldn't be at the event to check out. The trailer asks important questions like, can vampires eat Pop-Tarts? What does McLovin look like as a vampire? And, can puppets be scary? This looks like a horror comedy blast and will arrive just in time for Halloween this year.
The series stars John C. McGinley as Stan Miller, the curmudgeonly retired police sheriff of Willard's Mill, and Janet Varney as Evie Barrett, the current sheriff determined to wipe out the demons that plague their town of Willard's Mill. Deborah Baker Jr. and Nate Mooney return to co-star. Scott Adsit, Maria Bamford, David Koechner, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Eddie Pepitone are all set to guest star this season. IFC announced during the SDCC panel that Stan Against Evil season 3 will premiere on Wednesday, October 31 at 10 p.m. The new season will consist of eight episodes.
The series, which debuted on IFC in 2016, follows Stan Miller, a perpetually disgruntled former sheriff of a small New England town who was forced into retirement. Stan has trouble relinquishing his authority to Evie Barret, the tough and beautiful new sheriff in town, but they form an unlikely alliance when both begin to realize things are not quite right in their quaint New England town. Together, they valiantly fight a plague of unleashed demons that have been haunting the town, which just happens to be built on the site of a massive 17th-century witch burning.
Star Against Evil season 3 picks up immediately after the events of the season 2 finale, with Stan and Evie back in Willard's Mill dealing with the consequences of Stan traveling through time to save his dead wife Claire. In doing so, he inadvertently opened a portal between the Land of the Living and the Land of the Dead, allowing evil forces to truly take over the town and even some of its inhabitants. Although always the skeptic at first, Stan must work with Evie to once more save the town, even if it means making a literal deal with the devil.
For those who maybe miss Ash vs Evil Dead, this is cut from a similar cloth and, if you haven't checked it out yet, Stan Against Evil could help scratch that itch. If you're a Hulu subscriber, the first season is currently available to stream, with the second season arriving on the service on August 17. That should give anyone plenty of time to get caught up before season 3 arrives later this fall.
The series comes from the mind of Dana Gould, who serves as writer and producer. Series lead John C. McGinley also serves as a producer. Be sure to check out the first trailer for Stan Against Evil season 3, courtesy of the IFC YouTube channel, for yourself below.
