Netflix has been doing business either in news ways or the old. This time, they’ve really proved themselves worthy of still using the old techniques of picking up another network’s TV show while it’s still on the air. The streaming giant presents to you: CBS’s first season of Evil. It will be on its way to Netflix in the United States starting on the 1st of October, 2020.
The first season of the series aired on CBS between the months of September 2019 and January 2020. As for the second season, it’s been renewed, just lacking a release date.
From the works of Robert King and Michelle King, yes, the same Kings from The Good Wife and The Good Fight on the streaming giant, Evil is a supernatural dram starring Kaja Herbers, Mike Colter, Aasif Mandvi, and Kurt Fuller.
Thankfully, all 13 episodes of the series will be arriving on the streaming platform on the 1st of October, 2020. Beware, however, that that series will only be available to subscribers from the United States.
Almost all of the content produced by CBS has been licensed by the streaming giant a couple of years back. Don’t be sad that Hawaii Five-0 and Person of Interest will be leaving Netflix as their contracts were only licensed until the end of September 2020, another batch of CBS content is coming.
There are even some CBS titles that are putting out new episodes but aren’t airing the added episodes on an annual basis––much like that of Criminal Minds and NCIS.
Netflix has also stated that they have a lot of spending power coming in the fourth quarter and 2021. This is to help the streaming giant in replacing the content halted by the pandemic––those who were supposed to be filmed in 2020.
CBS’s situation, however, still remains to be unknown. With the recent marketing for CBS All Access, they’re also giving out licenses for their leading shows.
