‘Stan Against Evil’ Renewed for Season 2!
  |  @   |  

Horror is this “it” thing on TV right now, and horror-comedy is even better. Ash vs. Evil Dead just wrapped a second great season on Starz, and has already been renewed for season 3. Scream Queens is blending horror and insane comedy on FOX Tuesday nights. This fall, IFC joined the party with Dana Gould’s Stan Against Evil which premiered in early November. I watched the pilot back at NYCC in October and it instantly hooked me. Stan is played by John C. McGinley who brings the same rough sarcasm he did as Dr. Perry Cox on Scrubs only this time with a shade of melancholy. The show ran a limited run of 8 half hour episodes, run back to back for four straight weeks. IFC has just renewed Stan for a second season.
