The casting and plot details have been revealed for the upcoming “Evil Dead” series for the Starz network. Ray Santiago and Dana Delorenzo have been signed to play Ash’s sidekicks for the TV show.
Look like this TV show isn’t gonna be a continuation of the 2013, “Evil Dead” big screen film but instead the TV show is gonna be a continuation of the original trilogy so I assume this will take place 30 years after, “Army of Darkness”???
Here’s the synopsis: “Campbell reprises his role as Ash, the 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.“
Awesome! Wish I can watch this show when it’s on the air but I don’t have Starz and will probably never get it! So if they get it on Netflix, I’ll probably watch it on there. If Netflix doesn’t get the show at all, then I’m gonna have to buy it on DVD.
I’m sure the show will still be a mix of comedy and horror like the original trilogy. I’m sure Ash will say his famous catchphrases such as “Groovy” and “Hail to The King, baby” but I hope he comes up with new catchphrases too!
I’m excited for this show being the big Evil Dead and Bruce Campbell fan that I am. Can’t wait to see him back as Ash. Gonna be badass to see him back in that role and I’m sure he’s still got it! \m/
