Production has kicked off on the third season of Evil, showrunner Robert King revealed in a social media post that took fans behind the scenes of the cult-favorite Paramount+ drama. King is keeping himself busy, with Evil and the next season of The Good Fight seemingly happening right on top of each other, giving him little room to breathe between projects. But fans were excited to see concrete progress on the next season of Evil, which has been off the air since the season 2 finale in October. News of the show’s season 3 renewal came over the summer.
Evil actually aired on CBS for its first season, and was on the bubble, leaving fans wondering about renewal. In May, news broke that the show could be headed to Paramount+ instead of retaining its spot on CBS. The Mike Colter-starring series followed both SEAL Team and Clarice as shows making a similar move.

Their job is to assess if there’s a logical explanation or if something truly supernatural is at work, examining the origins of evil along the dividing line between science and religion. The series is created by Robert and Michelle King.
