The first season of Evil ran on CBS for a total of 13 episodes; with its season finale airing on January 30/2020. Like most shows, production of season 2 was halted before they could start filming, due to COVID-19. The show was always set to resume production, but little word was given on when it could resume filming.
During a virtual panel at the New York Comic Con on October 10/2020, the cast of Evil decided to release a homemade trailer; that consisted of them reading lines and acting out future scenes on ZOOM.
The trailer appears to shed some light on last seasons cliff-hanger ending, of whether or not Kristen (Katja Herbers) is possessed. During the season 1 finale, it was implied that Kristen had killed the recently released serial killer Orson Leroux (Darren Pettie). We saw her pull out one of her climbing axes, and in the next scene it was pointed out that she appeared to have blood on her leg. This was followed by Kristen receiving a phone call from Detective Mira Byrd (Kristen Connolly) informing her that Orson was dead. The last scene of the episode left us with the image of a cross being burned in Kristen’s hand following her touching it.
During the trailer Mike Colter, who plays David Acosta on the show, revealed that he had a vision of the devil hugging Kristen. Could this be the proof that the devil is in fact corrupting Kristen.
The trailer also informed us that Leland Townsend (Michael Emerson) was breaking off his engagement with Sheryl Luria (Christine Lahti). During the trailer, Michael Emerson revealed that he had only been using Christine Lahti to get at her daughter to hurt her, and now that she’s hurt, their done. Could this also reinforce the notion that Kristen has been corrupted by an evil presence.
It’s unknown when these exact scenes will take place in the season, or even when the first episode of season 2 will air. For now, all that is known is that season 2 will resume filming next month in New York.
