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.
NBC’s proposed Xena reboot under LOST writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach doesn’t yet have official pilot order, or even a script, but that hasn’t stopped Grillo-Marxuach from answering persistent inquiry for details on the new series. To wit, we now know that NBC might eye Xena as an “event series” rather than a full fall order, while fans hoping for Lucy Lawless or Renee O’Connor to pass the torch shouldn’t hold their breath … yet.
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!
Groovy Bruce isn’t going to let fall premiere week have all the fun, but gladly put his ego aside to introduce the rest of Ash Vs. Evil Dead. The Starz scream-fest has released a new video introducing Ash’s sidekicks with plenty of new footage, and a touch of Evil to come, Dead and otherwise.
Starz’s Ash Vs. Evil Dead won’t officially get the Deadite party rolling until Halloween, but those in attendance of New York Comic-Con 2015 will get a chance to meet the man himself, and catch exclusive previews of of Ash’s return. Starz has set the full NYCC panel plans, along with an autograph session and a new photo.
Apart from all the awesome trailers we’ve seen to date, Ash Vs. Evil Dead fans might worry over the half-hour episodic format, compared with the character’s cinematic history. And while half an hour might seem far too little to spend with Ash each week, Starz’s first nine episode synopses paint a much clearer portrait of how Ash Vs. Evil Dead plans to dole out its brand of horror.
Starz’s Halloween-tinged Ash Vs. Evil Dead gave us a refresher course on Sam Raimi’s horror mastery by the most recent trailer, but no harm ever came from investigating a little deeper, right Ash? Go behind the scenes of the “jolly splatterfest” that is Ash Vs. Evil Dead, chock full of new footage and all the boomstick you can handle.
Initial word of an NBC Xena reboot was met with skepticism from original star Lucy Lawless, only to turn around and confirm that the network had at least considered the idea. Now NBC brass says writing staff for the reboot have been courted, though Lucy Lawless’ actual involvement might require a surprising condition.
