We’ve seen Ash Vs. Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell boomstick it to The Walking Dead once before, and ol’ Groovy Bruce isn’t lying low while we wait for Season 2. The erstwhile Fargo and Evil Dead star took a playful jab at Batman v. Superman as well, and let’s face it, we’d all surrender more cash to add Ash Williams and a chainsaw into the mix.
The first season of Starz’s Ash Vs. Evil Dead didn’t end with our beloved aging Lothario stockboy conquering his titular enemy (it’d be a short show if he did), instead taking an unexpected trip down south. Not Hell, but close! See Ash party chainsaw-style across Florida in our first official photo from Season 2!
Starz’s Ash Vs. Evil Dead earned itself a groovy Season 2 pickup before the first run even premiered, and now Bruce Campbell is already dusting off the chainsaw again. Joining Ash this year will be none other than cameo mainstay Ted Raimi, along with The Six Million Dollar Man himself, Lee Majors, in roles key to Ash’s childhood.
Both the Deadites of Ash vs. Evil Dead and walkers of The Walking Dead occupy disparate corners of the undead spectrum, but since when have you known Ash, or Bruce Campbell to play nice? Ol’ Groovy Bruce took a potshot at The Walking Dead, and Rick Grimes may be out of a job.
Groovy Bruce made a big enough splash ahead of this past Saturday’s Ash vs. Evil Dead premiere to earn a Season 2 renewal, but Starz still wants you to see what all the undead fuss is about. Find out for yourself with the first full premiere installment of Ash vs. Evil Dead, now available online!
Already earning rave reviews ahead of its Halloween premiere, Ash vs. Evil Dead will keep Bruce Campbell groovy for even longer. Starz has officially hailed to the king, greenlighting a second season of the Sam Raimi horror show to battle Deadites in 2016.
If there’s one thing the Evil Dead franchise has taught us, it’s to be wary of things that look too good to be true. The zombies in this series love to disguise themselves as the reanimated friends and family of the film’s heroes. And then, when the good guys let their guard down, the monsters strike.
Ecstatic altogether though we are to have ol’ Groovy Bruce back in the saddle for Starz’s Ash vs. Evil Dead, one can’t help wonder if Ash might cross paths with the rebooted Evil Dead world. We’ve heard Sam Raimi say as much before, but are Ash and Mia going to be vs.-ing the Evil Dead any time soon?
All Hallows’ Eve us almost upon us, and whatever dead may rise, Starz’s Ash Vs. Evil Dead has more than Deadites rising to the occasion. Bruce Campbell’s aging lothario returns in our first four-minute clip from the new Sam Raimi series, and dear Ash hasn’t lost a step before taking on the Evil Dead.
For as much as Starz’s Ash Vs. Evil Dead intends to reward fans of Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell’s Evil Dead trilogy, new viewers will undoubtedly need some jumping off point. Thankfully, Starz knows just how to conjure nostalgia and education alike, marathoning all three Evil Dead movies to lead into a Halloween sneak peek of Ash Vs. Evil Dead.
