Ash vs. Evil Dead is back bloodier and crazier than ever and Starz has unleashed the full trailer for the upcoming third season. Not only is the show soon returning for a groovy new season, but Ash (Bruce Campbell) will discover the joys of fatherhood when he finds out he’s the baby-daddy of a teenaged daughter who may take after her proud papa in the Deadite-killing department.
Slated to premiere on Feb. 25, the show picks up where Season 2 left off. After saving his hometown of Elk Grove from Baal (Joel Tobeck), the Necronomicon and the Deadites, Ash has “gone from murderous urban legend to humanity-saving hometown hero,” the official synopsis reads. Our chainsaw-wielding lothario soon discovers that he has a long-lost daughter named Brandy Barr, played by Arielle Carver-O’Neill (Predestination), and that evil is after his offspring.
Ruby (Lucy Lawless) is also back with a plan to defeat Ash and determined to raise hell on Earth, and that plan apparently includes that creepy Deadite baby and the biggest Deadite the show has ever seen. Just check out the new poster below:
Thankfully, Ash still has his faithful sidekicks Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo), and Pablo (Ray Santiago) to lend a helping hand and Kelly is also bringing a new friend along in Lindsay Farris (Gods of Egypt), who will play the role of Dalton, the leader of the Knights of Sumeria, an ancient order who wants Ash to lead them in their fight against the Dark Ones. As for Pablo, after his horrifying Season 2 ordeal (dude was officially dead as a doornail until Ash and Kelly went back in time to save him), he’s now training to become a "brujo (sorcerer, shaman) special."
Ash vs. Evil Dead returns for a 10-episode third season on Feb. 25.
