This fall, SPACE and SPACE HD are runnin’ with the devil when Season 2 of the original scripted series TODD & THE BOOK OF PURE EVIL unleashes its awesome power on Sunday, Oct. 30 at 10 p.m. ET. Hot off a Gemini Award win for Best Ensemble Cast in a Comedy Series, the horror comedy is back with 13 killer new episodes. With more than 55 gallons of fake blood spilled during production, the second season promises to be dark, deadly and oh-so-badass. Before bedlam ensues, INNERSPACE dives into chaos with an exclusive TODD & THE BOOK OF PURE EVIL Season 2 special on Monday, Oct. 10 at 8:30 p.m. ET. Hosted by Teddy Wilson, this special features a behind-the-scenes look at the series during production in Winnipeg. Viewers can relive or catch up on the bloody good first season at spacecast.com.
TODD & THE BOOK OF PURE EVIL debuted as one of the highest-rated premieres for a SPACE original series and continues to gain momentum. Following an amazing run on SPACE, Season 1 was the most-watched Canadian program on The Comedy Network this summer among all key adult and male adult demos. The first season’s gory goodness can also be found on MuchMusic, Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET. Viewers in the U.S. made a pact with the devil when the first season of TODD began airing on the horror channel FEARnet in August. With an upcoming DVD release (Oct. 11) and an online video game on the way later this fall, Canadians can soon take in TODD whenever they bloody well choose.
Ending Season 1 with an epic cliff-hanger, Todd Smith and the gang return from the depths of hell for another round of gruesome adventures. In the season premiere, “Redierment Home”, Todd, Curtis and Hannah break into the retirement home to rescue Jenny from the clutches of the evil Satanic Society – now run by Atticus.
