With the show’s Comic-Con panel only a few days away, Starz has released a couple more Ash vs Evil Dead images. The ten-episode first season of the half-hour horror/comedy series will debut this fall with star Bruce Campbell reprising his role as Ash, the chainsaw-handed, Deadite-killing stock boy who is drawn back into the battle against the Evil Dead after living peacefully for the last 30 years.
And Campbell won’t be the only one returning to the franchise. Sam Raimi’s ’73 Delta 88, a.k.a. “The Classic”, is back, and like its driver, will be getting doused in blood along with Ash’s new sidekick, Pablo (Ray Santiago).
It will be interesting to see how many other Evil Dead markers we’ll see along the way. Speaking to EW, Campbell promises “There’s going to be a lot of the classic, over-the-top, in-your-face fullness, with a pretty trash-talking Ash,” but because it’s a TV series and requires more dialogue, “There’s a pretty high count of Ash’s classic one-liners. They’re back, and they’re strong, and they’re flourishing!”
Check out the new Ash vs Evil Dead images below via EW.
Here’s the official synopsis for Ash vs. Evil Dead:
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.
