As we prepare for Ash vs Evil Dead to begin this weekend, Starz have released the opening four minutes of the highly anticipated series.
The clip shows Ash (Bruce Campbell) still cheeky as ever, loving himself and heading to a local pub looking for some action, and action he finds. However, this being to do with the Evil Dead, there’s a nasty surprise in store, so check out the clip below.
Campbell has also said in an interview with Forbes that a second season is already in the works!
“I’m pretty confident there’s going to be a season 2…”
He continued, saying, “…you have to do so many things now to get ready for when you’re about to shoot, like get warehouse space, re-upping your lease, getting a writers room going… well, those things are happening. So, I’ll just leave it at that.”
“Ash vs Evil Dead” premieres Saturday, October 31st, at 9:00pm ET/PT exclusively on STARZ with a 10-episode season.
Campbell reprises 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,” “Xena”) 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.
