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.

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.
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.
We’ll never stop mourning the absence of future Hannibal (at least until that mini-series finally gets greenlit), but some good finally seems to have come of its end. Frequent Hannibal director David Slade will join creator Bryan Fuller on Neil Gaiman Starz adaptation American Gods, both as director and producer.
More and more each year, TV executives quake in their stylish, yet affordable boots over the exponential increase in peak TV, even as us ravenous viewers eagerly take it all in. Fall 2015 is no exception, cramming your DVR with everything from superheroes new and old, to Scream-ing gore-fests, animated staples and so much more. You’d need some sort of … television … guidance … periodical to navigate it all, but because we love you, we’ve compiled over 30 of Fall 2015's biggest must-see premieres. Remember to sleep, and take in the onslaught of fall 2015's TV madness by our full preview!
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.
As Hannibal fans this weekend (and billions of others before them) can attest, too long has the antiquated Nielsen ratings system given an incomplete picture of a show’s viewership, swaying networks to and fro of cancellation. We may finally have some progress however, as Nielsen will begin taking into account streaming data from the likes of Hulu, Netflix and beyond.
