It was announced today that Evil will be moving to Paramount+ for its long-awaited second season. It has been over a year-and-a-half since the drama earned an early pickup after a strong start in the fall of 2019.

The reason behind the move to the streaming service is seemingly at least in-part because CBS already has a full slate of dramas on tap for the 2021-2022 season. On top of that, Season 1 of the series was a fairly strong performer digitally compared to its linear run, garnering healthy numbers on both CBS All Access and Netflix.

From Robert and Michelle King, who created 'The Good Wife' and 'The Good Fight', Evil stars Mike Colter and Katja Herbers as a priest-in-training and a skeptical clinical psychologist who investigate unexplained phenomena such as demonic possession, miracles, and supernatural occurrences, as they try to determine if there is a scientific explanation behind it.

No premiere date has been announced for Season 2 of Evil at this time, but it will likely debut later this year.
