‘Stan Against Evil’ Renewed by IFC

IFC has renewed “Stan Against Evil” for a second season.

The comedy series stars “Scrubs” alum John C. McGinley as a retired sheriff in small-town New England who teams with the new top sherrif, played by Janet Varney, to fight an unleashed horde of demons. Creator Dana Gould serves as executive producer with Tom Lassally, Frank  Scherma and Justin Wilkes. RadicalMedia produces the series.

“’Stan Against Evil’ instantly connected with IFC viewers, making it one of the network’s most  popular original series launches to date,” said Jennifer Caserta, president of IFC. “IFC is thrilled for another season of keeping Willard’s Mill safe from demons, monsters and succubuses, and we are enormously grateful for the talented John C. McGinley and Janet Varney, along with master storyteller Dana Gould, for bringing this oddly wonderful world to life.”

Season one, which premiered in October, averaged 369,000 viewers per episode in Nielsen live-plus-seven numbers.

“It was so great to see ‘Stan’ connect with its fans. Thanks to DVRs, the audience more than doubled each week. That amazed me,” said Gould. “I love the characters and I  love the world, and I’m very grateful we all get to go back to Willard’s Mill and blow up more  stuff.”
