We're in the home stretch now, baby! That's right. There are just 30 days left until Ash Vs. Evil Dead arrives in time for Halloween. Broken down, that means we only have 720 hours, 43200 minutes and 2592000 seconds until Bruce Campbell makes his triumphant return on Starz. The iconic actor has delivered a special message and a brand new photo. He wants us all to remain vigilant through this final month. He believes in us. We can stay patient. We can do it. Bruce Campbell had this to say on the official Ash Vs Evil Dead Twitter.
"You've waited a quarter of a century for the return of Ash. One more month ain't gonna hurt. That's all! One month until Ash Vs Evil Dead comes screaming back."
Ash Vs. Evil Dead follows Ash (Bruce Campbell), 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. Here's what Bruce Campbell has to say about Ash as he returns to fight a new threat, as well as Ash's new companions.
"Ash Williams is your everyman. He's your neighbor who knows nothing. He has no special skills. He's not interested in saving the world. Ash and Pablo, they are very side-kicky. You need a mentor and a tormentor. [Along with Kelly], it's a very tight threesome. And they have a vendetta to rid the world of evil. And they're going to do it one creature at a time."
Ash Vs. Evil Dead debuts Saturday, October 31 and will run for 10 half-hour episodes during its first season. The first episode titled El Jefe is set 30 years after Ash's last Deadite fight. Badass blowhard Ashley Williams (Bruce Campbell) has unleashed the Evil in an act of stoned stupidity, bringing Deadite mayhem into his life once again.
The cast is led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, Burn Notice) in the role of Ash Williams, Lucy Lawless (Salem, Spartacus) as Ruby a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks, 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. The supporting cast is rounded out by Jill Marie Jones, Mimi Rogers and Hemky Madera. Take a look at this special message, which arrives with a very heroic shot of Ashley. Will you have the patience to wait?
