The grooviest undead slayer alive, and king of the B movies Bruce Campbell is set to return to dispense more boomstick goodness to the deadites in Starz’ upcoming horror series Ash vs Evil Dead.
In an interview with Dread Central, Campbell dished on the upcoming show’s plot as well as how audiences are actually going to find Ash Williams this time around.
Ash vs Evil Dead focuses on a nomadic Ash (Campbell), a man who’s not only haunted by traumatic memories but also terrorised by the unwelcome continuance of Deadite attacks, which have followed him to the myriad Midwestern trailer parks he’s been forced to call home. But when the partner of State Trooper Amanda Fisher (Jill Marie Jones) is found dead in a grisly murder, all roads point to Ash as the killer, and Fisher sets out to arrest him. But what she finds is nothing that she could have foreseen, and now side by side with Ash, the two will have to work together if humanity is going to have any chance of surviving the onslaught of the Evil Dead.
Campbell and original Evil Dead creator Sam Raimi are on board as producers, and are promising a very epic series, as well as planning on five full seasons of blood and gore madness.
Season One is set to premiere later this year.
