Netflix Hit Series Is The Best Supernatural Drama No One Watched

By Britta DeVore | Published


Right now on Netflix, lovers of the paranormal have ample opportunities to check out intriguing and addicting stories through titles like The Haunting of Hill House, Supernatural, Locke & Key, and more. However, there’s one show that’s been flying under the radar and is definitely worth checking out for those who love a little bit of drama mixed in with their demons and ghosts. Evil takes viewers on a ride into the supernatural with a fun twist that sees three investigators from different backgrounds come together to crack the case.


Starring Katja Herbers (Westworld), Mike Colter (Marvel’s Luke Cage), and Aasif Mandvi (The Brink), Evil centers around three supernatural specialists on a search for the truth. Forensic psychologist Dr. Kristen Bouchard (Herbers) works alongside Catholic seminarian David Acosta (Colter) and technology contractor Ben Shakir under the watchful eye of the Catholic Church who are hoping to gain a better understanding of the realm beyond our own. 

Seasons 1 And 2


Initially a CBS production, Evil would make the move to Paramount+ after its first season with Netflix picking up rights to streaming as well. The Robert and Michelle King project has garnered nothing but positive reviews, making it a winner for any network lucky enough to gain streaming rights. As of right now, only the first two seasons are available on Netflix, forcing those eager to continue the story into its third chapter to head over to its home at Paramount+.

A Critical Darling

As for those positive reviews, both critics and audiences alike agree that Evil is one of those shows that hooks you in and doesn’t let go, keeping viewers on the edge of their seats as one episode cliffhangers into the next. With top-tier actors and well-penned storylines and characters, it’s easy to see why folks are obsessed with Evil. The series has a staggering 92 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes which is impressive for any production but especially one that’s flown under the radar as much as this one has.

The Netflix Effect

Evil is just one of Netflix’s many titles to come from a larger network, further adding to “The Netflix Effect,” a term that describes shows trying to garner more viewers by allowing the uber-popular streamer to buy into their content. Recently, Suits has been a big winner of this business model, as the show broke records when it arrived on the platform back in 2023. Not only is it a way for the shows to gain more traction but it’s also a way for those studios like Warner Bros. to make an extra buck by leasing their content. Netflix subscribers won big time over the last year with WB content as movies from the DC Universe and beyond were made available for a limited time.

As for Evil, the show’s fourth season is just around the corner with a premiere date set for May 23. Sadly, the paranormal researching trio’s dance with the devil and his loyal subjects is quickly coming to an end as, following the fourth season, a shortened fifth season will unravel the final chapters of the story. You can get caught up now on Netflix and Paramount+.
