However, a release date hasn’t been announced for the new installment just yet. Since moving to Paramount+ ahead of its second season, new seasons of the show have premiered in the month of June.

Evil Season 4 Cast: Who can be in it?
‘Evil’ stars Katja Herbers (Dr. Kristen Bouchard), Mike Colter (David Acosta), and Aasif Mandvi (Ben Shakir), in the lead roles. The main cast also features Michael Emerson (Dr. Leland Townsend), Christine Lahti (Sheryl Luria), Andrea Martin (Sister Andrea), and Kurt Fuller (Dr. Boggs). Brooklyn Shuck, Skylar Gray, Maddy Crocco, and Dalya Knapp appear as Kristen’s daughters Lynn, Lila, Lexis, and Laura, respectively. Patrick Brammall (Andy Bouchard), Boris McGiver (Monsignor Matthew Korecki), Brian d’Arcy James (Victor LeConte), and Li Jun Li (Grace Ling) appear in recurring roles.
We expect most of the main cast members to reprise their roles for the fourth season. The recurring cast members are also likely to return except for McGiver, whose character perishes near the end of the third season. Additionally, actor Wallace Shawn who appears as Frank Ignatius as a guest star in the third season, could join in a recurring capacity. Moreover, fresh faces could be added to the show’s cast ahead of the fourth season.
Evil Season 4 Plot: What can it be About?
‘Evil’ season 3 revolves around Kristen protecting her daughters from Leland in her husband’s absence while David deals with his feelings for Kristen. Victor LeConte recruits David to work for the Vatican, while Ben finds himself in a secret demonic cult. In the season 3 finale, Kristen learns that her missing egg has been acquired by Leland, while Andy and David have visions of demons and an angel, respectively.
The fourth season could follow David as he tries to decipher the meaning of the Angel of the Beginning’s warning to him. As a result, he could seek help from LeConte and Grace Ling. Meanwhile, viewers might learn more about Leland’s plan. Likewise, Kristen might struggle with the realization that she is linked to a demon baby through her egg.
