Evil season 4 release date speculation, cast, plot, and more news

The Paramount Plus show has wrapped us up in its devilish arms, and we can't wait for more. So, here's what we know about Evil season 4's new episodes.

Katja Herbers as Kristen Bouchard in Evil season 4

When is the Evil season 4 release date? Created by Robert and Michelle King, Evil has been a huge hit for Paramount Plus with fans and critics alike falling under the spell of Dr. Kristen Bouchard (Katja Herbers).

Evil is basically the X-Files for a new generation and one of the best TV series in recent years. We can’t wait for a new chapter of this story, so here’s the rundown of what season 4 of one of our favorite Paramount Plus shows might hold in its spiraling fingers.

Evil season 4 release date speculation

Evil season 4 will likely come out in mid-2024 after being announced in July 2022.

Evil was previously released annually, but the show was disrupted by the 2023 Writers Strike and the Actors Strike. Filming for the new season was already underway before the strikes and had to wrap early. There is footage, just not all the footage we need for a complete season.

Mid-2024 is a good bet, but it could be even further away depending on how long it takes the actors on strike to secure a fair deal.

Katja Herbers, Mike Colter, and Aasif Mandvi are all expected to return for season 4 of Evil.

Here’s the Evil season 4 cast list:

What will Evil season 4 be about?

Evil season 4 will pick up where season 3’s finale left off, with Kristen learning that her nemesis Leland had stolen one of her eggs and implanted it into a surrogate in the hopes of birthing the Antichrist. 

“One of the things that excites us is going the more normal route with things that are usually very dramatic in horror or supernatural shows,” showrunner Robert King told EW.

“The Omen and The Antichrist have thunderclouds and earthquakes and the horsemen of the apocalypse. But it’s a baby — and babies are nightmare enough. You don’t need lightning and thunder and all that. Babies vomit on their own! They don’t need to have the devil inside them to be vomiting pea soup!”

As if Kristen’s personal life wasn’t screwed up enough, she’ll have to deal with her brainwashed husband while trying to raise her young daughters. She’s going to have her hands full.

It’s not all family drama, though, since Kristen will still be investigating the unknown with David and Ben.

Evil season 4 trailer speculation

Evil season 4’s trailer will likely arrive before mid-2024. There isn’t one yet.

We can guess, based on the timing of previous Evil trailers, that it will drop around two months before the season premieres. While we wait, previous seasons are available to watch right now on Paramount Plus, and there are plenty of clips online for recaps.

Luckily, we did get some images from season 4, which you’ve already seen above. Kristen… we’re so sorry!

Where can I watch Evil season 4?

Evil season 4 will be available to watch on Paramount Plus.

The bad news is that you will have to reach into your wallet for a subscription to the service to watch it there. The good news is that Paramount Plus has a lot to offer.

We’ve also got a list of everything new on Paramount Plus if you’re in need of a replacement to watch.

How many episodes will Evil season 4 have?

Season 4 will probably have 10 to 13 episodes, based on Evil’s previous seasons.

Of course, Paramount Plus could decide to go off the beaten path, but TV series tend to stick within a certain episode count range. If you’re anything like us, you might be getting slightly tired of Star Wars series and their ilk sticking to just six, so more than that is welcomed news.

If you like spooky shows like this, you’ll probably want to read everything we know about The Sandman 2 release date, the From season 3 release date, and the Yellowjackets season 3 release date.
