Even though it doesn't return to Starz until this Halloween, today we get our first look at Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 2! TVInsider has shared the epic first photo, which shows one big kegger going on down in Florida. We don't yet have an officially premiere date for Ash's return. But from the looks of things, this is going to be one hell of a party!
Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 2 will pick up right where Season 1 left off. Bruce Campbell's titular hero has left the world of killing Deadites behind. Now, he is living it up in the Florida Keys. And what better way to do that than with a huge kegger on the beach. In this sneak peek, we get to see Ash using his chainsaw hand to slice through the beer keg. Says executive producer Craig DiGregorio about the scenerio.
"When you have a chain-saw hand, this is how you tap a keg. Unfortunately for Ash, the party is cut short when he must return home to continue the fight against evil."
Bruce Campbell is returning in the title role for more episodes. While promoting the upcoming show last year, the actor explained that some of the blood splatter comes out of a keg not unlike this one we see here. He had this to say about the amount of blood the show uses on a regular basis.
"We have a beer keg that gets rolled out. And it says 'pressurized tubes' going in one end and coming out the other. And in the middle is however much blood a keg will hold. We drained that keg."
Starz announced in February that Lee Majors (Do You Believe?) will play the role of Brock Williams, Ash's father, and Ted Raimi (Xena: Warrior Princess, Spider-Man) will play the role of Ash's childhood best friend, Chet Kaminski, in the Starz Original series Ash Vs. Evil Dead. The series was previously renewed for a second season and returns this fall.
The second season of the Starz Original series Ash vs Evil Dead will be 10 half-hour episodes. The cast is led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, Burn Notice) in the role of Ash Williams; Lucy Lawless (Salem, Spartacus) as Ruby, who now possesses the powerful Necronomicon; Ray Santiago (Touch, Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, Ash's loyal sidekick dealing with the trauma he suffered in the cabin; and Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, who, grief-stricken after the death of her parents, plots revenge against The Evil Dead.
Sam Raimi serves as executive producer with Rob Tapert (Evil Dead, Spartacus, Xena: Warrior Princess), Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, Burn Notice) and Ivan Raimi (Drag Me to Hell, Spider-Man 3) along with Craig DiGregorio (Workaholics, Chuck) who serves as executive producer/showrunner. Aaron Lam (Spartacus) and Moira Grant (Spartacus) serve as producers. Check out the first Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 2 image. Are you excited yet?
