This is so groovy! STARZ has started rolling out teasers for the 10-episode first season of the half-hour series, Ash vs. Evil Dead. The latest one above features Ash’s (Bruce Campbell) iconic voice and his trademark one-handed chainsaw.
Ash is back, baby!
Campbell will be 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.
Ash vs. Evil Dead is currently in production in New Zealand. It’s the long-awaited follow-up to the classic film franchise The Evil Dead by Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert. The original series is set to premiere on STARZ in fall 2015.
Raimi is directing the first episode, which he wrote with Ivan Raimi (Darkman, Army of Darkness, Drag Me to Hell) and Tom Spezialy (Chuck, Reaper, Desperate Housewives).
