I’m currently obsessing over this new teaser for Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi’s Ash vs. Evil Dead, which teases the only thing we ever really need to see from here on out—Ash and his groovy chainsaw! This one is miles better than the first teaser we saw back in April that was essentially just the noise of a chainsaw and an illustration. I won’t spoil it here, nor will I gush over this too much, so just watch it for yourselves and enjoy!
The first season of the show will feature 10 half-hour episodes and is set to premiere on Starz in late 2015.
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.
The cast is led by Bruce Campbell in the role of Ash Williams, Lucy Lawless as Ruby a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks, Jill Marie Jones 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, Ray Santiago as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick and Dana DeLorenzo as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past.
