Starz has revealed the first official pic for its upcoming Ash vs. Evil Dead TV series.
The 10-part half-hour series will see Bruce Campbell reprise the role of Ash Williams after a 23-year break from killing those pesky deadites, last seen in Army of Darkness (1992). And once again, Ash is accidentally responsible for the upcoming apocalypse.
Creator Sam Raimi (who directed the first episode) told Entertainment Weekly: "He’s the only one stupid enough to really tamper with those spirits. And he does. But he’s also still a really good monster fighter. So, he’s also going to be kicking some deadite buttocks, if you’ll pardon the French."
Featured in the pic above are Ash’s new sidekicks and fellow Value Stop employees Pablo (Ray Santiago) and Kelly (Dana Delorenzo). Guys, how groovy is it to see Ash wielding his trusty chainsaw once more? I'd say it's very groovy.
Co-starring Lucy Lawless, Ash vs. Evil Dead will premiere on Starz sometimes in the fall.
