Ever since the season three cliffhanger finale, fans have been clamoring for at season four of Stan Against Evil. Sadly, however, it looks like the story of Willard’s Mill has officially come to an end.
Series creator Dana Gould formally announced the news on his podcast The Dana Gould Hour where he said, “Stan Against Evil, I am sad to report, will not be returning for a fourth season. It had a great run of three seasons. It’s not coming back. Will it show up in some other form on some other network someday? Maybe. But right now, as we like to say, it’s dead as Kelsey’s nuts.”
The series wasn’t a ratings giant but did have a very strong fan following. Stan Against Evil 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.
Gould continued on by saying, “I’m very proud of the show and its fantastic cast: John McGinley, Janet Varney, Nate Mooney, Deborah Baker Jr., our great directors, Eban Schletter our great music person, Autonomous F/X, all the people that worked on the show. I’m leaving a lot of people out. This isn’t the official format for my thank you, but I thought everybody did a great job. The show’s on Hulu, you can enjoy it. It ain’t comin’ back anytime soon, but that is -as they say- showbiz, and I’m already working on some other cool crap that will hopefully come your way.”
In addition to McGinley and Varney, Stan Against Evil also stars Deborah Baker Jr. and Nate Mooney. The series is created, written and executive produced by Dana Gould. McGinley also serves as producer.
The series quirky humor will certainly be missed!
