It’s been over 20 years since Ash (Bruce Campbell) fought off the deadites, and in that span, fans have clamored for the character to return. Evil Dead came back as a remake but without Ash, and looking at the angry, ugly nature of that film, his absence was for the best. Now Ash will be back for real with the Evil Dead TV series, which will run 10 half-hour episodes on Starz in late 2015. Campbell will return to play his iconic character, and Sam Raimi, who directed the original trilogy of Evil Dead movies, will helm the pilot and executive produce.
Campbell, ever the raconteur, recently spoke to EW about the show and what fans can expect—in short, they should be very pleased because the actor knows his character and this franchise inside and out. Hit the jump for more on the Evil Dead TV series.
