6 Things to Know About ‘Evil’ TV Show And Its Season 2 Renewal

From the network that brought you top TV shows such as NCIS, The Big Bang Theory, Hawaii Five-O, Young and the Restless, God Friended Me, Blue Bloods and Young Sheldon, comes another exciting TV drama series titled Evil. From its title, one could easily deduce that the show is another dramatic thriller from CBS.

On the show, Dr. Kristen Bouchard is a forensic psychologist who pairs up with David Acosta, an assessor, and together, the pair work with Ben Shakir, a contractor, as they seek to uncover several supernatural incidents happening around them.

6 Things To Know About The TV show, Evil

1. Meet The Couple Who Created The TV show, Evil

CBS’ Evil was created by the couple, Michelle and Robert King. The two have been involved in producing and writing several top-notch films and TV series together. Some of their best works together include Brain Dead (2016), The Good Wife (2009-2016) and The Good Fight (2017-present). The pair are film and TV writers and producers. They have been married since 1987 and have a daughter named Sophia. Robert was born in 1959 while his wife was born the year before.

2. The Idea Behind The show’s Creation

iThe Evil tv show tries to treat both the faithful and the agnostic with equal respect. The show tries to explain that not every real-life event has a supernatural and scientific explanation. It then goes ahead to avoid resolving every case in black-and-white terms, either. It is for such reason that David Acosta hired Kirsten Bouchard, to help distinguish between the supernatural and science. That sense of irregularity in the characters’ personal lives are the persuasive reasons why many keep watching the show.

3. Production

Production of Evil began in January 2019 just after CBS approved the scripts written by Michelle and Robert King and ordered a pilot for the show. Casting began the following month with Mike Colter and Katja Herbers being confirmed as the lead characters. The following day after CBS ordered for a full series, an announcement was made for its premiere date and it was picked for the fall of 2019. The show’s first official trailer was released on May 15, 2019. The Evil TV show premiered on CBS on September 26, 2019.

4. The Show Is Still Being Aired

The show’s pilot episode aired on September 26, 2019, with 4.56million U.S. viewers tuning in. The show’s second episode titled “177 Minutes” aired on October 3, 2019, and experienced a slight decline with 4.20 million U.S viewers tuning in. Later episodes seem to have followed a similar trend. However, the first season, which airs on CBS TV on Thursday nights by 10 pm, is expected to air 13 episodes, giving the show enough time to recover its viewers.
