There are still three months to go before Starz’ Ash vs. Evil Dead returns for its second season, but the network is planning a big push later this month at San Diego Comic-Con and in advance of that has released the first teaser for season 2 that is every bit as gory and fun as the first season. Watch the clip below, but warning: pretty much everyone ends up covered in blood.
Season 2 picks up where we left off last year, with Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) leaving Jacksonville to return to his hometown of Elk Grove to confront and join forces with his former enemy, Ruby (Lucy Lawless), in their fight against the deadites. Joining him are his sidekick, Pablo Simon Bolivar (Ray Santiago), still coping with the intense trauma he suffered in season one, and Kelly Maxwell (Dana DeLorenzo), grief-stricken over the deaths of her parents and bent on revenge against the undead who killed her. But the important thing is that the blood, guts, and pitch black comedy aren’t being tamped down at all.
Ash vs. Evil Dead is based on the classic Evil Dead horror-comedy films directed by Sam Raimi and starring Bruce Campbell. Produced by Raimi, Campbell, Rob Tapert, and Ivan Raimi and executive produced by showrunner Craig DiGregorio, the 10-episode second season premieres in October.
