Evil Season 4 Filming Update Is Very Good News

Summary

  • Evil season 4 has wrapped filming, as confirmed by a post from star Katja Herbers on Instagram. A premiere date announcement is coming soon.
  • The show was delayed due to strikes but was already far along in production, with only the final episode left to shoot.
  • It is likely that Evil season 4 will premiere in mid-Spring 2024, taking advantage of the earlier filming wrap to allow for post-production and marketing.


Following concerns of release delays due to the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes, Evil season 4 has gotten an exciting filming update. Created by The Good Wife duo Robert and Michelle King, the supernatural drama centers on a Catholic priest-in-training, a forensic psychologist and a technical contractor who work together to investigate supernatural events across New York while also encountering a mysteriously devilish cabal. Led by Katja Herbers, Mike Colter, Aasif Mandvi and Michael Emerson, the show has garnered consistent acclaim across its three seasons, with a season 4 renewal ordered in the middle of season 3.

With over a year gone since the season 3 finale, Katja Herbers took to Instagram to share an exciting Evil season 4 filming update.

The post, as shown above, features behind-the-scenes footage and images of Herbers, Colter and Mandvi from the set, with the caption confirming that filming has officially wrapped on season 4. The star also went on to tease that a premiere date announcement for the show is coming “soon“.


When Evil Season 4 Could Release

While it was one of the many shows to fall victim to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, Evil season 4 was actually pretty far along in production before being delayed, with the tenth and final episode of the season being the only one left to shoot. Rumors had previously swirled that the show could still premiere without the finale in Summer 2023, only for a source close to the production to quickly shut this down, confirming that the show wouldn’t air with a truncated episode count. Now that filming has wrapped on the finale, the question that arises is when the next season will premiere on Paramount+.

As indicated by Herbers’ post above, a premiere date announcement looks to be right around the corner, and considering how far along into production the show was before the shutdown, it seems entirely likely that this will be revealed shortly after New Year’s. Unlike most movies, TV shows typically undergo the post-production process even in the midst of shooting in the hopes of making certain release windows, with Evil season 3 in particular releasing just a month after filming had wrapped on it. Though it seems unlikely that season 4 will premiere in January, the conclusion of filming could very well keep the show’s prior summer release window.

That being said, Paramount+ may look to take advantage of the earlier filming wrap to release Evil season 4 sometime in mid-Spring 2024. This would not only allow for enough time to wrap up any post-production needed for the finale, but to also schedule the show’s stars to engage in marketing and interviews to help promote its return. With the Evil season 3 finale ending on a big note for many of its characters, particularly Herbers’ Kristen and Colter’s David, fans of the show are sure to hope for a quicker return of the hit supernatural drama.
