Paramount+ announced today that Evil has been picked up for a third season. The good news comes three episodes into the drama's sophomore run at its new streaming home.

The series originated on CBS in 2019, earning a quick renewal just a month after its premiere. But after its freshman outing proved to be a tough ratings draw on network TV, CBS saw more potential for the show on its streaming service. Season 1 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.

Look for Season 3 of Evil in 2022.
