It’s been some time since we’ve heard from the front of Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller’s Starz adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, last said to be dependent on casting its lead “Shadow Moon.” Whatever progress has been made at least, Starz confirms that production will begin this year, in Canada.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens won’t finish breaking box-office records anytime soon (er, technically it will after overtaking Avatar), but inevitably, J.J. Abrams’ entry into the Star Wars saga will have to land on TV. And rather than any major FX debut, HBO run or even streaming option, The Force Awakens will play on Starz before all.
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.
Starz’s Outlander has kept fans waiting long enough for a second season, and may tease a few Sassenachs even longer until its spring 2016 premiere, but at last, some relief is here. Jamie and Claire are headed to France in the first official Season 2 trailer, which itself offers a treasure trove of easter eggs for fans.
Seriously, does Steven Soderbergh ever sleep? In between directing episodes of Cinemax’s The Knick, the Magic Mike director apparently had time to re-envision The Girlfriend Experience as a new Starz series debuting in 2016. Anyway, here’s the first sexy trailer, chock full of … you know. Sexy things. Girlfriend things.
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.
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.
