Evil is a supernatural thriller television series that premiered on CBS in 2019. The show follows a forensic psychologist, Kristen Bouchard, played by Katja Herbers, who gets recruited by a skeptical priest, David Acosta, played by Mike Colter, to help investigate miracles and demonic possessions. Along with Ben Shakir, played by Aasif Mandvi, a tech expert, they form a team that works to determine whether supposed supernatural occurrences are genuine miracles or something more sinister.

The show begins with Kristen getting hired as an assessor for David and his team, who work for the Catholic Church as their assessors of supposed demonic possessions. At first, she is skeptical of David's work and dismisses many of the cases they are tasked with investigating. However, as she begins to dig deeper into what's going on, she starts to experience strange and supernatural events herself, causing her to question the sanity and safety of herself and her family.

As the show progresses, each episode features a different investigation into a supposed miracle or possession. They encounter many sinister and supernatural events along the way, such as a baby who seems to cure people's ailments and a man who appears to have stigmata. The team employs psychological and scientific methods to uncover the truth behind these phenomena.

Throughout the series, the show explores deeper themes about faith, science, and the nature of human belief, as the investigations become more and more ambiguous. Kristen, who is an atheist, must reconcile her skepticism with the existence of literal demons in the world. David, who is a believer, faces doubts about his faith and the church he serves. Throughout their investigations, the team is often confronted with the reality that the supernatural may not be as simple or as straightforward as they once thought.

The show is also notable for its portrayal of secondary characters, including Kristen's husband, who is diagnosed with cancer, and David's complicated family history. These subplots provide insight into the main characters' motivations and add an emotional depth to the show that elevates it beyond just a supernatural thriller.

The show's writing is complex and thought-provoking, with each episode exploring deep philosophical questions that often have no clear answers. The show's creators, Michelle and Robert King, are also responsible for critically acclaimed shows such as The Good Wife and The Good Fight, and their expertise in crafting nuanced, multidimensional characters is evident in Evil. The show's cinematography and special effects are also well-done, creating a chilling and unsettling atmosphere that suits the show's subject matter.

Overall, Evil combines supernatural thrills with existential questions, creating a show that is both entertaining and thought-provoking. The show's strong writing, excellent acting, and eerie atmosphere make it a must-watch for fans of supernatural thrillers and anyone interested in exploring the complexities of belief and faith.

Evil is a series that is currently running and has 4 seasons (40 episodes). The series first aired on September 26, 2019.
