UPDATED with IFC statement: The story of Willard’s Mill has come to an end.
“Stan Against Evil, I am sad to report, will not be returning for a fourth season” Gould said. “It had a great run of three seasons. It’s not coming back. Will it show up in some other form on some other network someday? Maybe. But right now, as we like to say, it’s dead as Kelsey’s nuts.”
IFC released a statement thanking Gould, producers and cast.
“We are grateful to Dana Gould and our partners at Radical Media, as well as the stellar cast of ‘Stan Against Evil’ including John C. McGinley and Janet Varney for three unforgettable seasons battling the forces of evil and the most original one-liners anywhere,” IFC said in the statement.
Starring McGinley and Varney, Stan Against Evil followed Stan Miller (McGinley), the perpetually disgruntled former sheriff of a small New England town, and Evie Barret (Varney), his younger, more spirited successor, and how the two are forced into an unlikely alliance upon realizing their sleepy little town is the subject of a 300-year-old demonic curse. Willard’s Mill, it turns out, was the sight of a massive 17th century witch burning and as such, Stan and Evie are forced into battle against demons, witches, haunted ponies, giant piglets, evil babies, you name it, all while trying to bridge their chasm-wide personal differences.
Gould executive produced with Tom Lassally (Silicon Valley). RadicalMedia produced with Frank Scherma and Justin Wilkes executive producing. McGinley also served as a producer. Deborah Baker Jr. and Nate Mooney co-starred.
