If you haven’t seen season 1 of IFC’s Stan Against Evil, well, you’re seriously missing out. The series is the perfect combination of classic horror and hilariously dark humor.
The series stars John C. McGinley (Scrubs, Office Space, The Belko Experiment) as Stan Miller, a police sheriff who, after a strange and emotional outburst during his wife’s funeral, finds himself unemployed and feeling alone for the first time. When strange things start happening within the town, Stan soon discovered that his wife was a witch hunter. She secretly spent her nights protecting him from a curse cast upon the town centuries ago because of a constable who burned 172 witches at the stake. Evie Barret (Janet Varney), who takes over Stan’s position as sheriff, soon also discovers the town is overrun by demons and witches. Together, the unlikely pair is forced to team up to banish evil from their town once and for all.
In a new television spot, series creator Dana Gould plays off of one of McGinley’s most iconic roles. Arguably well known for his role in Office Space as one of the Bobs, in the new promo McGinley’s character Stan is finally relaxing in his armchair after a long day of hunting witches and he flips on the television. As Stan begins to channel surf, he comes across Office Space on TV and, well, the rest of the 40-second clip is just priceless.
We will be talking with the cast this week at New York Comic Con, however, in the meantime, check out the new promo below and make sure you tune in for season 2 of Stan Against Evil premiering November 1st on IFC.
