IFC Renews ‘Stan Against Evil’

IFC has renewed its horror-comedy series Stan Against Evil for a second season, the network said Tuesday.

The series, which stars John C. McGinley as a former sheriff of a small town tasked with hunting down demons, will return for a sophomore campaign in 2017, said network officials.

The series, executively produced by Dana Gould (The Simpsons), also stars Janet Varney.

Stan Against Evil instantly connected with IFC viewers, making it one of the network’s most popular original series launches to date,” said Jennifer Caserta, President of IFC in a statement. “IFC is thrilled for another season of keeping Willard’s Mill safe from demons, monsters and succubuses, and we are enormously grateful for the talented John C. McGinley and Janet Varney, along with master storyteller Dana Gould, for bringing this oddly wonderful world to life.”
