Why Evil Shouldn't Explore Leland's Backstory, According To Star

Why Evil Shouldn't Explore Leland's Backstory, According To Star
Michael Emerson does not think that Evil should explore Leland's backstory. The supernatural drama series, which moved from CBS to Paramount+ in 2021, tracks psychologist Kristen Bouchard (Katja Herbers), as she joins forces with Catholic seminarian David Acosta (Mike Colter) and technology contractor Ben Shakir (Aasif Mandvi) to examine paranormal activity. When audiences were introduced to Dr. Leland Townsend, he had stolen Kristen's therapy notes and began making alarming suggestions to her and David. As the show progressed, it became evident that he was acting with malicious intent, and in the Evil season 3 finale, it was revealed that he had used Kristen's missing egg as a way to bring a demon into the world.

While new details might be revealed about certain characters in Evil season 4, it is unlikely that Leland's backstory will be explored. During Screen Rant's exclusive interview with Emerson, the actor shares that he enjoys the amount

How Evil Season 4 Could Be Best Yet Teased By Leland Actor
Michael Emerson is teasing how Evil season 4 could be the show's best stretch of episodes yet. The supernatural drama series has maintained consistent ratings over at Paramount+, as well as relative praise from critics and audiences alike. It follows psychologist Kristen Bouchard (Katja Herbers), and her efforts, along with Catholic seminarian David Acosta (Mike Colter) and technology contractor Ben Shakir (Aasif Mandvi), to investigate a number of supposedly paranormal events. Emerson stars as Leland Townsend, a rival of Kristen's who influences others to commit acts of evil, and in the season 3 finale, audiences were surprised to learn that Kristen's missing egg was used by him and another woman to have a child.

With Kristen finding out about Leland's plans and Sheryl's (Christine Lahti) involvement at Df, there's a lot of interest in what happens when Evil returns. In Screen Rant's exclusive interview with Emerson, the actor revealed that filming

‘Evil’ Season 3 Deleted Scene: Father Ignatius vs. an Infestation (Video)
What better way to celebrate the holidays than with Evil Season 3 on Blu-Ray and DVD, beginning December 13? TV Insider has an exclusive first look at one of the deleted scenes you can find on the three-disc set, this one from the finale, “The Demon of the End.” In the aftermath of Monsignor Korecki’s (Boris McGiver) murder, Father Ignatius (Wallace Shawn) began working with Kristen (Katja Herbers), David (Mike Colter), and Ben (Aasif Mandvi). In the clip above, he joins David at Kristen’s neighbor’s house for an exorcism. (Kristen’s neighbors were suffering as a result of what’s going on in her house.) Kristen’s neighbor is surprised it’s Father Ignatius’ first. “It’s a low exorcism. Any priest can conduct one,” he explains. When they hear very strange noises in the middle, Ben suggests, “...

The first images from Mrs. Davis highlight Betty Gilpin as a nun at war with artificial intelligence.

The Daily Stream: Evil Is Small-Screen Horror At Its Best And Strangest

The Daily Stream: Evil Is Small-Screen Horror At Its Best And Strangest
(Welcome to The Daily Stream, an ongoing series in which the /Film team shares what they've been watching, why it's worth checking out, and where you can stream it.)

The Series: "Evil"

Where You Can Stream It: Paramount+

The Pitch: In the simplest of terms, "Evil" is a case-of-the-week procedural in the vein of "The X Files" or "Fringe." Only, instead of investigating unexplained phenomena for the FBI, forensic psychologist Kristen (Katja Herbers), Catholic priest-in-training David (Mike Colter), and tech expert Ben (Aasif Mandvi) are looking into potential supernatural encounters for the Catholic church, in order to see if they meet the criteria to warrant exorcisms. But like I said, that's just the simplest of terms. In reality, even the wackiest episodes of "The X Files" barely touch the outlandishness of "Evil," a show that thrives on surreality, dark humor, creative practical and special effects, and a deep vein

Evil Star Katja Herbers on Over-Directing: I Know How Not to Listen”
Dutch actor Katja Herbers plays forensic psychologist Kristen Bouchard on the hit series Evil, which just finished its third season at Paramount+. On this episode, she talks about how saying no to the audition actually secured her the role, and hitting it off with “the Kings” (show runners Robert and Michelle King) helped her feel ownership of it. We get into the beautiful weeds about the pitfalls of over-directing and how she often simply ignores direction or translates it into something she can use. She explains why laboring over an emotional through-line is unnecessary, how working with the girls that […]

‘Evil’ Bosses on Andy’s Flashes, Father Ignatius & More Season 4 Burning Questions
[Warning: The below contains Major spoilers for the Evil Season 3 finale “The Demon of the End.”] After a couple of insane finale cliffhangers — what else would you expect from Evil? — the wait for Season 4 is going to be long. Sure, we’re wondering what the future holds now that Leland (Michael Emerson) used Kristen’s (Katja Herbers) missing egg and they’re going to be parents as well as what’s going on at the end there with Andy (Patrick Brammall) and Dr. Boggs (Kurt Fuller) gathering with the demons (and baby) in the under-construction addition to the Bouchard house. But there are also a few other lingering threads at the end of the season. We turned to creators Robert and Michelle King to get answers in addition to their teases about what’s next after those cliffhangers. What can you say about Season 4?

Evil Season 3 Finale Review: A Tale of Three Fathers

Evil Season 3 Finale Review: A Tale of Three Fathers
This Evil review contains spoilers.

Evil Season 3 Episode 10

Evil season 3 ends at a crossroads with only one destination. According to The Pop-Up Book of Contemporary Demons, the chapter is both “The Demon of End” and “The Angel of Beginning.” This, however, is a subversion of the dark and light designations. The upcoming birth of a child is being celebrated. It appears to be the product of an inception so immaculate one might call it sterile. But, in an original twist on original sin, the child’s lineage goes straight back to Rms Fertility.

The episode opens in the direct aftermath of “The Demon of Money” conclusion, which saw the death of Monsignor Matthew Korecki (Boris McGiver). The camera doesn’t troll, but the episode expertly shows Leland’s (Michael Emerson) world getting smaller. It is by sheer coincidence, Grace Ling (Li Jun Li) didn’t recognize his face, and tells

[Warning: The below contains Major spoilers for the Evil Season 3 finale “The Demon of the End.”] Robert and Michelle King delivered exactly what we expected to bring the third season of Evil to a close: an insane, chilling, thrilling finale. A quick recap of the two wildest moments: Kristen (Katja Herbers) found out that Leland (Michael Emerson) used her missing egg and they’re going to be parents?! Also, after thinking her husband was dead, Andy (Patrick Brammall) came home, thinking Edward’s (Tim Matheson) cover story (an avalanche) is what really happened, but having flashes of the room where Leland and Sheryl (Christine Lahti) were holding him — and he and Dr. Boggs (Kurt Fuller) joined a group of demons around a demon baby in the addition to the Bouchard house. Below, the Kings break down the Season 3 finale. So much about that ending was so chilling! Starting with Leland and Kristen’s baby?! Is his plan for
