IFC has cancelled comedy horror series “Stan Against Evil” after three seasons. It concluded its final season last fall. 

The show was shot in metro Atlanta but was set in a New Hampshire town built on the site of a massive witch burning haunted by demons, spirits and witches. 

Stan Miller, the former sheriff, is played by ‘Scrubs” star John McGinley and Evie Barrett (Janet Varney), the new sheriff to defend the town from the supernatural. 

The show got mixed reviews from critics and viewers, according to Metacritic
Creator Dana Gould broke the news on his podcast. 

“‘Stan Against Evil’ I am sad to report, will not be returning for a fourth season” Gould said. “It had a great run of three seasons. It’s not coming back. Will it show up in some other form on some other network someday? Maybe. But right now, as we like to say, it’s dead as Kelsey’s nuts.”

IFC has also shot Hank Azaria’s “Brockmire” locally. The third season of that show will debut later this year.
