The first season of Starz’s Ash Vs. Evil Dead wonderfully picked up with the title character after decades of absence, and Season 2 will expand the history of our aging stockboy lothario even more. A new inside look at Season 2 takes Ash and co. back to his hometown of Elk Grove, picking up a bit of history left behind by the original Sam Raimi films.
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.
