‘Evil’s Mike Colter, Aasif Mandvi and Katja Herbers on Series Finale and Show’s Legacy (Exclusive)

It’s time for one last round, Devil fans, and the best is yet to come. The fourth and final season of the psychological drama will begin airing on Supreme+ this week, and stars of the series Mike ColterKatja Herbers and Aasif Mandvi tease that viewers have a lot to look forward to.

Considered a psychological mystery, Devil aims to examine the origins of evil along the dividing line between science and religion. Season 4, which was originally announced in July 2022consists of 14 episodes that follow the cast as they investigate the origins of evil and the unexplained mysteries of the church, including demonic possession.

“Kristen, David and Ben continue to evaluate cases involving rogue technology, possessed pigs, demonic oppression and infestation, a dance muse conjured by supposed witches, and an evil relic,” reads the official description for the new season.

In February it was announced that Season 4 would be the last season of the show., and the production received four additional episodes to conclude the story. Colter tells ET that the show’s creators and writers, Robert and Michelle King, took that time to use “the best parts” of what they originally intended for future seasons to create the series finale.

“They like to have time to really process where they’re going and I don’t think they like to be rushed,” Colter adds. “(When) we found out that we were coming to an end, they had a few months, and I think Robert had to think about the best parts of what he intended to do for the next two seasons and just touch on some things and at the same time , leave it open. Leave it somewhere (between) a satisfying ending and still not close the door completely.”

“So it was a very difficult task for him, but I think he did a great job,” says the Marvel alum. “There were some things in the four episodes that made me think, ‘Oh, if we had 20-something more episodes, this is what our characters would have looked like.’ So it’s a great place to be, and Robert, Michelle and “Your writing team did a great job, so congratulations to them.”

Mandvi adds that “some loops have closed” enough to give viewers closure without completely closing the door on possible sequels.

“I think what makes our show so interesting is that there are some things that will always be left unanswered and I like that about the show,” Mandvi says. “Not everything is neatly wrapped up in a bow because there are so many things in the show where you just go, ‘Well, I don’t know, we have no idea,’ so I think it’s good that some things have been wrapped up and other things haven’t. “

“What’s also nice is that you get a sense of, ‘OK, where are these characters now? Where do we leave them?’ and we leave them in a specific place,” says Herbers.

Season 4 will also feature cast members Michael Emerson, Kurt Fuller, Andrea Martin, Christine Lahti, Brooklyn Shuck, Skylar Gray, Maddy Crocco and Dalya Knapp.

He’s leaving behind such an incredible cast, which Mandvi says is the real downside to ending the series.

“The truth is, in this business, it’s very difficult to get a job where you get to work with amazing people: the creators, the actors you work with, and other people,” he tells ET. “Working with really great material and really great people and doing it for four seasons is a weird thing, and I don’t want people to think that we’re not grateful for the fact that we got to do this.” incredible show and our incredible work.”

The stars are also especially grateful to their fans, who, according to Mandvi, have “grown over the years.”

“After Season 3 I realized that we have people who are very, very attached to these characters and the show,” he gushes.

Colter agrees, adding, “I would say we’ve had a really good fan base, even since the first season… I know this is a show that we’re really proud of and the fans like us because it’s a show that when you’re watching, you have to peel back some layers, it provokes thoughts, it provokes discussion (and) you have to pay attention to it. It’s not something that you play in the background and do other things, so I really feel connected to our. Devil fans. “I have a special place for them.”

It feels like we’re still being discovered and that’s the fun part of it.” program.” tells ET the show may draw new crowds while joining streaming platforms.

“I feel like it’s nice to be able to move around and maybe find new audiences from time to time and that’s something really great about the platforms and living off streaming; that we can go little by little and grow our audience and also be Years later , we introduce ourselves to people who are as if they were discovering us for the first time and that’s nice,” he adds.
