Last month, we got our first look at Lucy Lawless' Ruby in a first look photo from Starz's upcoming show Ash Vs. Evil Dead, debuting Saturday, October 31 at 9 PM ET. While we continue the countdown to the Halloween premiere, the cable network has released a new poster, featuring Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams, and his new partners in crime, Ray Santiago as Pablo Simon Bolivar and Dana DeLorenzo as Kelly Maxwell. This one-sheet also gives us a new look at Ash's iconic car, the 1973 Delta 88 known simply as "The Classic."
Ash vs. Evil Dead is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead and is set to premiere on Starz in Fall 2015. The 10-episode first season featuers Campbell reprising his role as Ash, 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.
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.
Bruce Campbell teased last month that the TV series may spawn more Evil Dead movies, but he also revealed earlier this year that the show has a five-season plan. That is surely contingent on how many viewers tun in for the 10-episode Season 1, but if Starz does renew the show after this first season, it may be quite a long wait for new movies.
The series star also serves as an executive producer on the series along with Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Craig DiGregorio, who will serve as the showrunner. Sam Raimi directed the first episode of Ash Vs. Evil Dead, from a pilot script that he wrote with Ivan Raimi and Tom Spezialy. Take a look at the latest poster, and stay tuned for more on Ash Vs. Evil Dead.
