I know that most of you have been waiting so very impatiently for the upcoming new series Ash vs. Evil Dead from Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and of course Bruce Campbell. Now that the San Diego Comic Con is in full swing, Starz has released one of the most amazing trailers for the series that I’ve seen in quite a while. You can take a peek at the trailer after the break. The other cool announcement for the series is that it will have a Halloween, October 31st, 2015 official premiere date on Starz network.
Ash vs. Evil Dead is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead and will premiere on STARZ October 31, 2015. The 10-episode first season of the half-hour series is executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, Bruce Campbell, the original filmmakers of the franchise, and Craig DiGregorio, who serves as executive producer and showrunner.
Campbell is reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario, and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity, and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons – personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip.
The cast is led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, Burn Notice) in the role of Ash Williams; Lucy Lawless (Salem, Spartacus) as Ruby, a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks; Ray Santiago (Touch, Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick; Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past; and Jill Marie Jones (Sleepy Hollow) as Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper set to find our anti-hero Ash and prove his responsibility in the grisly murder of her partner.
