Descripton: Stan Against Evil follows Stan Miller (McGinley), 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 (Varney), 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.

Season End Status: (Updated 12/13/16) Coming as no surprise, IFC announced that this show will be returning for a second season. The linear viewing has not been too high, averaging just a 0.08 rating based on the overnights for the 18-49 demographic. But it has done well in delayed viewing and it is the most-watched original series in over a year for that smaller cable network. Stan Against Evil had eight episodes for its first season which were aired back-to-back across four weeks, and I would expect probably ten or more for the show’s second season which will air in late 2017.
