Everyone’s favourite Candarian Demon slayer Ash Williams is back in a new TV Series by Starz Network. While much speculation surrounds Ash vs. Evil Dead, Starz did reveal a short teaser trailer today featuring Ash and his legendary chainsaw. The first teaser for Ash vs. Evil Dead was in an awesome minimalist style, but this is the first real look we’ve had at Bruce Campbell back in his most famous role. Check out the new trailer below.
Ash vs. Evil Dead will take the form of a ten-epsiode, half-hour series executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, Bruce Campbell, the original filmmakers of the franchise, and Craig DiGregorio as executive producer and showrunner. The series begins 30 years after the original “Evil Dead” and focuses on Ash facing a new Deadite invasion. It also stars Lucy Lawless. Ray Santiago, Dana Delorenzo and Jill Marie Jones.
Raimi is set to direct the first episode of Ash vs. Evil Dead, with many other directors stepping in for future episodes. Ash vs. Evil Dead began production in New Zealand last month, and a promotional photo revealed that the Oldsmobile Delta 88, featured in many of Raimi’s films, will be making an appearance.
