Now, this is something that doesn't happen often! Thanks to Encore, we’ve already gotten our hands on nine (out of the 10) episode titles and synopses for the first season of Ash vs Evil Dead.
The Starz series, set to premiere on Oct. 31, sees the return of Bruce Campbell in the role of former S-Mart employee Ash Williams. Coming along for the ride are his trusty chainsaw and two new sidekicks in the shape and form of Dana DeLorenzo’s Kelly and Ray Santiago’s Pablo. Also on board for some Deadite action is Campbell’s Xena: Warrior Princess co-star Lucy Lawless.
In the 10-episode series set to air in the fall, “Campbell will be 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.” Groovy! Now have a look at the epic goodness coming our way (aka the episode titles and synopses):
