Last week, we showed you a new clip from the sixth episode of Ash Vs. Evil Dead, which revealed that Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) is heading back to the place where this undead plague started, the Cabin. Today, we have a promo for the eighth episode, Ashes to Ashes, airing Saturday, December 19, which reveals that Ash has finally made it back to the Cabin. Unfortunately, we don't see any of the Deadites in this footage, but this episode revolves around Ash as he attempts to bury the book to end the Evil, but first he must contend with other, more physical things from his past.
A few days before Ash Vs. Evil Dead premiered in October, Starz issued a Season 2 renewal for the hit series, which will span 10 episodes. Bruce Campbell will be back as Ash, alongside Lucy Lawless as Ruby, but no other cast members have been confirmed for the new season. Could this mean that either Pablo or Kelly could meet their demise towards the end of this first season? We don't know for sure, but stay tuned for more on this hit series.
The 10-episode first season of the half-hour series features Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, Burn Notice) as 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 Evil Dead original filmmakers Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell serve as executive producers with showrunner Craig DiGregorio.
Last week, Ash Vs. Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell has 'supposedly' leaked the script for a crossover with The Walking Dead. Of course, it was all a big joke, but it would be interesting to see how Ash Williams would fare in the zombie-infused world of The Walking Dead. Sadly, since The Walking Dead airs on AMC and Ash Vs. Evil Dead, this crossover won't ever see the light of day.
There have been numerous Easter Eggs and references to the original Evil Dead movies since the series first started on Halloween night. Are you glad that Ash is finally going back to the cabin in this week's episode Ashes to Ashes? What do you think will happen when Ash brings the Necronomicon back to the Cabin? Let us know what you think after checking out this new trailer.
