After over two decades, Bruce Campbell is returning to the Evil Dead series, reprising his role as Ash in the all-new series, Ash Vs Evil Dead. The actor is once again taking on the character of Ashley Williams in the all-new series on Starz, which will once again put him against the evil Deadites.
The ten-episode series will see Campbell return as Ash who once again has to save the world from demons. Entertainment Weekly recently revealed the first look at the series which sees Campbell alongside his co-stars, Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo who are playing his co-workers at the Value Stop.
Campbell certainly made his Ash character a cult favourite amongst fans and he also single-handedly turned Evil Dead into a franchise vehicle of its own in the 90s. The film spawned a sequel as well called Army of Darkness, which also received cult-like status upon its release. As far as the plotline goes for the new series, Ash will once again be in the thick of the action as he faces an oncoming apocalypse perpetrated by the Deadites.
Ash Vs Evil Dead is set to air later this year and a full-length trailer for the series is expected to land fairly soon.
