If anything seemed amiss about the Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 2 finale, it might have something to do with the original pitch being completely vetoed by producer Bob Tapert. Now, departing showrunner Craig DiGregorio gets brutally candid about the original plan for Ash and Kelly, as well as a Back to the Future II-style return to the original Evil Dead.
You didn’t think that Ash’s battle against the Deadites would be over by Season 2, did you? Only one episode into our second year of Ash Vs. Evil Dead, and Starz is already pulling the starter cord on a third season due to arrive in 2017.
Since when has Ash Williams ever struck you as the patient type? Rather than wait until Sunday for Ash Vs. Evil Dead to resume its war against the Deadites in Season 2, you can pick up the chainsaw right now, as Starz releases the full premiere online early.
Ash Vs. Evil Dead had plenty of history to draw on for the Starz take on Bruce Campbell’s chainsaw-wielding champion, though rights issues prevented any reference to the medieval Army of Darkness. Then, producers claimed Season 2 was free and clear to pay homage to Ash’s past adventures, but according to groovy Bruce himself, those reports were exaggerated.
Ash Williams usually isn’t one to arrive early, but fans of Ash Vs. Evil Dead are in for a treat. Not only does Season 2 have an official October premiere date, nearly a full month earlier than last year, but so too do we have fresh images and key art from the new season.
Lucky attendees of Comic-Con 2016 got to see the full blood-spattered Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 2 premiere for themselves, but what of us at home? Stuck waiting for October, it seems, so check out an equally bloody new photo from the season, get ready for a major death, and a handsomely familiar returning foe.
Bruce Campbell may not have earned the Emmy recognition we hoped for, but Ash Vs. Evil Dead has no less reason to celebrate. A new full-length, blood-soaked trailer for Season 2 has arrived ahead of Comic-Con 2016, as Ash’s Jacksonville retirement comes to a gruesome end. Hail to the king once more, baby!
We knew Ash Vs. Evil Dead would pull the chainsaw cord anew for a Comic-Con 2016 appearance, but who wants to wait weeks for fresh blood? Season 2 is already here withe a new rip-roaring trailer, chock-full of all the blood, guts, glory (and puppets?!) we’ve come to expect from Sam Raimi’s iconic hero.
Our first look at Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 2 saw the title character having the time of his life, having paused the title battle for his own selfish ends, but the latest look is anything but peaceful. Not only does Ash look to have been through the grinder again, a new Season 2 photo sees Ash in some surprising company.
You didn’t think we’d make it through Comic-Con 2016 without worshiping Starz’s American Gods, or Ash Vs. Evil Dead, did you? Fear not, for those groovy gods have officially confirmed their panel plans for 2016, while a new photo teases Gillian Anderson as the God-ly Media.
