February 20, 2022
(New York, NY) - If the person closest to you were the devil in disguise, would you see the signs? This month, the hit true crime series EVIL LIVES HERE returns to ID and discovery+ for its hundredth episode - and, yet another bone-chilling season. Featuring terrifying and unbelievable first-hand accounts from people whose loved ones have committed some of the most horrifying crimes imaginable, this season will take viewers through the terror, pain, and lingering trauma that comes hand-in-hand with living in close proximity to evil. New Episodes Air Sundays at 9/8c on ID beginning Sunday, February 20th with the first two episodes available to stream back to back on discovery+ and new episodes dropping weekly. All previous seasons of EVIL LIVES HERE are currently available to stream on discovery+.
From a sister’s terrifying realization that her brother is far more evil than she could have thought and a man deep in denial over his girlfriend’s deadly actions to an ex-wife determined to avoid a divorce by any gruesome means necessary and a stepson too dangerous and sick to be believed, the new season of EVIL LIVES HERE will give audiences intimate access to even more terrifying accounts from survivors and families who witnessed the unthinkable.
The gripping first episode of the season features a devastating account of a deeply disturbing case of child abuse. Survivor Jesse Eging painfully shares the horrific abuse and terror he and his siblings experienced at the hands of his mother’s live-in girlfriend, Alice Jenkins. What started as small, cruel acts of dominance by Alice, perceived by Jesse and his siblings as “games”, quickly escalated into full blown acts of abuse - turning Jesse’s once happy childhood home into a house of horrors. At the hands of Alice, Jesse and his siblings were victimized endlessly - finding themselves trapped in a closet for months at a time, being beaten, starved, and denied all basic human needs. Only once Jesse and his siblings managed to escape was he able to shed light on the terror he experienced.
“Since EVIL LIVES HERE premiered in 2016, our viewers have been drawn to these powerfully raw and honest first-person accounts of some of the most unspeakable acts anyone could ever imagine a loved one committing,” said Jason Sarlanis, President of Crime and Investigative Content. “As we mark our milestone 100th episode with our talented partners at Red Marble Media, we’re very proud that this series has become a trusted place for people to share their experiences.”
EVIL LIVES HERE is produced for ID by Red Marble Media with Kevin Fitzpatrick, Jonathan Santos, and Jacinda A. Davis as Executive Producers. Lorna Thomas is the Executive Producer for ID.
