Will there be a Season 2 of 'Evil' on Netflix?

Though Evil has been renewed for a Season 2 by CBS, the drama has not been given a premiere date. Due to the coronavirus pandemic (also known as COVID-19), many production schedules have been altered and pushed back. 

Therefore, fans should not expect Season 2 of Evil to be available to stream on Netflix until later in 2021. 

On Oct. 10, Evil dropped a teaser trailer, which foreshadowed what's to come in the next installment of the series. Per the clip, Kristen seems to be plagued by darkness and hallucinations. Dr. Leland Townsend (Michael Emerson), who admits that he was only dating Kristen's mother to hurt her daughter, calls off their wedding and continues with his psychopathic plans. 

As for David and Ben (Aasif Mandvi)... can they save Kristen and everyone else who may have been affected by RSM?
