Stan Against Evil strikes off into its second demon-slaying season starting on Wednesday, November 1 on IFC, with John C. McGinley (Stan) and Janet Varney (Evie) teaming up again to thwart a full-scale supernatural threat in their placid New Hampshire township.

Writer/comedian Dana Gould created the horror comedy show, which treads in familiar territory with Starz' Ash vs Evil Dead but with a unique twisted style all its own. The original eight-episode season was a gory, blood-gushing success and its sophomore outing was heralded at SDCC 2017 as containing, "More monsters. Deadlier demons. Same Stan."

Here's the S2 synopsis:

Stan Against Evil season 2 picks up again in Willard’s Mill, the small New England town where the perpetually disgruntled former sheriff Stan Miller (John C. McGinley) must begrudgingly get off his couch to solve the mystery of Sheriff Barret (Janet Varney)'s time-traveling disappearance. Through thick and thin, the unlikely team continues to battle against the unleashing of wicked demons trying to take over their town, which happens to be built on the site of a massive 17th century witch burning.

SYFY WIRE joined series creator Gould and stars McGinley and Varney at NYCC to chat about Stan Against Evil's upcoming adventures, that cliffhanger ending from last season, Stan's unexpected appeal, unpleasant witch burnings, and who gets sprayed with the most black goo this year.
