The blood, the chainsaw and that jaw are all back Evil Dead style in this Comic-Con look at Starz’s upcoming mayhem series. Ash vs. Evil Dead not only revealed their October 31 debut date but also a brand new trailer. Bruce Campbell is back as Ash from the cult horror flick franchise and Lucy Lawless returns to her old cable channel stompin’ ground to play Ruby.
The 10-episode first season 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. Production is currently underway in New Zealand.
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.
Ray Santiago, Dana DeLorenzo and Jill Marie Jones round out the cast. Check out the trailer above.
