Stan Against Evil: A Sneak Peek At Season Two


Mother’s fudge! It’s that time of the year again. Stan Against Evil is back November 1 on IFC, baby! That’s My Entertainment has a sneak peek at what’s in store for the residents of Willard’s Mill. It’s going to be a crazy, fun ride.

Picking up where last season left off, Sheriff Barret (Janet Varney) is still lost in time and it is up to Stan (John C. McGinley) to bring her back. Of course, the pre-requisite odd assortment of creatures and demons are on full display as well as some surprise guest spots.


Expect to see some familiar faces such as Denise Boutte (Days of Our Lives and Meet the Browns), David Koechner (Twin Peaks and Anchorman), Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator and the 4400), Patty McCormack (The Sopranos and Hart of Dixie) and Steven Ogg (The Walking Dead and Westworld).

Your old favorites are returning for more hi-jinx as well. Denise (Deborah Baker, Jr.), Leon (Nate Mooney) and Kevin (Dana Gould) will all be on hand to share in the action.

The dynamic between Stan and Evie hits its stride as the two begin to work closer together. Despite his initial old world sexist approach, the tide starts turning and you start to see that deep down, Stan respects Evie. In turn, she starts to trust him and might even consider him a friend.

As for Denise and Kevin, we all know that they have been moving closer to creating a bond. Let’s just say that without giving any spoilers away, the potential exists.

At this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Dana Gould hinted at the arc of season two in his chat with Gizmodo :

“One of my favorite things to write about is the law of unintended consequences. Every time you think you’ve got something figured out, there’s always a side thing that happens. That’s really the arc of the second season emotionally. But then we have a lot of great explosions and goo and monsters—that’s why we do this. You gotta hang that stuff on something that is relevant and sincere, or it doesn’t play. You need the counterweight.”

So, grab a beer, hunker down in that La-Z-Boy recliner and get ready for the season two premiere episode Wednesday November 1 on IFC at 10 p.m.
