The cancellation ax has just fallen on a series that had a three-season run on cable. Deadline reports that IFC pulled the plug on the horror-comedy series “Stan Against Evil.”

The report quotes series creator Dana Gould saying on his podcast: “’Stan Against Evil,’ I am sad to report, will not be returning for a fourth season. 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.”

Deadline notes that the series, which starred John C. McGinley and Janet Varney, “followed Stan Miller (McGinley), the perpetually disgruntled former sheriff of a small New England town, and Evie Barret (Varney), his younger, more spirited successor, and how the two are forced into an unlikely alliance upon realizing their sleepy little town is the subject of a 300-year-old demonic curse. Willard’s Mill, it turns out, was the sight of a massive 17th century witch burning and as such, Stan and Evie are forced into battle against demons, witches, haunted ponies, giant piglets, evil babies, you name it, all while trying to bridge their chasm-wide personal differences.”
