Sam Raimi has been working his upcoming television project which will see the Evil Dead heading to TV this year. Starz picked up the new series which will be titled ASH VS EVIL DEAD. It will be a follow up to Raimi's EVIL DEAD films and will feature an older Ash accompanied by two other characters. Bruce Campbell will be reprising the iconic role.
With filming now officially underway in New Zealand, news on the series continues to be revealed and today we have learned that actress Mimi Rogers has joined the cast of ASH VS EVIL DEAD. She will portray Suzy Maxwell, a woman who is reunited with her family and several uninvited guests after a freak accident. Suzy is the mother of Kelly, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past.

The cast is led by Bruce Campbell in the role of Ash Williams, Lucy Lawless as Ruby a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks, Jill Marie Jones as Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper set to find our anti-hero Ash and prove his responsibility in the grisly murder of her partner, Ray Santiago as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick and Dana DeLorenzo as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past, and Mimi Rogers as Suzy Maxwell, Kelly's mother.
