Ash vs Evil Dead Season Two Announced

By ComingSoon

October 28, 2015

Ahead of its Halloween premiere, the much anticipated Starz original series Ash vs Evil Dead has earned an early renewal for a second season. Strong fan, affiliate and distributor demand for the new series has made Ash vs Evil Dead season two an easy decision for the network.

Executive producers and The Evil Dead filmmakers Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell are all returning for Ash vs Evil Dead season two with executive producer and showrunner Craig DiGregorio. Campbell will continue in his role as Ash Williams, the aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter. Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”) is also returning as Ruby, a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks.

“One season isn’t enough to satisfy the fans’ two decade-long appetite for more Ash,” says Carmi Zlotnik, Managing Director of Starz. “The early fan and press support, along with the international broadcaster demand for more story have made it clear that the adventures of Ash Williams can’t end with season one.”

The 10-episode first season of the half-hour series also stars Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick; Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past; and Jill Marie Jones (“Sleepy Hollow”) 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.

Starz recently announced global licensing deals with broadcasters and digital platforms in more than 100 countries and territories worldwide allowing Ash vs Evil Dead to premiere simultaneously with its network premiere in the U.S. on October 31. Broadcasters and digital providers offering Ash vs Evil Dead on October 31 include Amedia (Russia/CIS), C More (Scandinavia), Fox Action on Fox+ Premium service/Fox Latin America Channels (Latin America/Brazil), Sky TV (New Zealand), Stan (Australia), Starz Play Arabia (Middle East/North Africa) and Super Channel (Canada).
