We’re just over a month out from Halloween, but CBS has the perfect new, creepy drama to hold you over until the holiday arrives and to keep the scary fun going even after the holiday ends.

“Evil,” which premieres Thursday night and was created by Michelle and Robert King, “is a psychological mystery that examines the origins of evil along the dividing line between science and religion,” according to the CBS synopsis.

“The series focuses on a skeptical female psychologist who joins a priest-in-training and a carpenter as they investigate the Church’s backlog of unexplained mysteries, including supposed miracles, demonic possessions and hauntings.”
