Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Just knowing that Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell will once again be bringing the Evil Dead back to life is an exciting thing in itself. Ash returning to pick up his chainsaw and boomstick, taking on the deadites will be a lot of fun indeed. We previously brought you the first four minutes from the opening scene of the first episode (see below) and now with the debut episode of the upcoming Starz series ASH VS EVIL DEAD nearly upon us, some very big news has come in.
The excitement level rises to new heights as we have learned that Starz has officially greenlit ASH VS EVIL DEAD for a second season.
Bruce Campell will return for Season 2 in the role of Ash along with co-star Lucy Lawless as Ruby. Showrunner Craig DiGregorio is also confirmed to return along with executive producers, Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert. Campbell also serves as an executive producer.
Carmi Zlotnik, who is the Managing Director at Starz had this to say about the renewal of the series:
"One season isn’t enough to satisfy the fans two decade-long appetite for more Ash. The early fan and press support, along with the international broadcaster demand for more story have made it clear that the adventures of Ash Williams can’t end with season one."
The cast is led by Bruce Campbell reprising his role of Ash Williams, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. Rounding out the cast are Lucy Lawless as Ruby a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks, Ray Santiago as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick, Dana DeLorenzo as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past and 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.
The 10 episode half-hour series ASH VS EVIL DEAD will debut October 31st on STARZ.
