How to watch ‘Evil’ Season 3
Evil debuted on CBS in 2019. But its arrival on Netflix exposed it to a larger fan base.
So, for Evil Season 3, viewers will need to tune into Paramount+. Existing subscribers must log in to watch the show when it premieres on June 12 at midnight Pacific Time. And those without a subscription can purchase the service (plans start at $4.99 per month) or sign up for a free trial.
How many episodes is ‘Evil’ Season 3?
The first two seasons of Evil aired with 13 episodes each. But the next installment will be a bit shorter.
Evil Season 3 is only 10 episodes. So with a June 12 release date and a weekly schedule, fans can expect the season finale to air Sunday, August 14.
What can fans expect from the new season of ‘Evil’?
Evil Season 2 ended with Kristen confessing to David and revealing her attraction to him. However, David became a priest anyway.
The two are in an awkward situation now. And according to showrunner Robert King, Kristen and David will have to work around their obvious chemistry in Evil Season 3.
“The issue of season 3 is — What do you do with this attraction now that he’s a priest and she’s married?” King told Entertainment Weekly. “That’s what excited us, getting deeper into what these two characters will do together — especially given that Katja and Mike have such great chemistry.”
King also revealed that the new episodes will continue to raise questions about what’s real and what’s in the characters’ minds. “The show works best for us when it plays the game of the supernatural. But it also shows how the supernatural can be a psychological condition,” he explained.
“I mean, what is it that keeps us all from calming down?” King continued. “You could see it as the supernatural. You could see it as just the modern condition. That’s what was fun about this year, playing off of that.”
