Here’s Your First Look At ASH VS EVIL DEAD Season 2 (Exclusive)

Click to enlarge image:


Alright Deadites, it’s almost time to get groovy again! Later this year, Starz is bringing back Ash vs Evil Dead for a second season, and fans at Comic-Con are going to be getting an early preview. But before that happens, we’ve got the first cast photo from the new season!

However, a brief recap is in order. Although Bruce Campbell‘s iconic imbecile was drawn out of his self-imposed retirement from fighting the Deadites, the first season finale ended with Ash seemingly abandoning his responsibilities as the Chosen One to escape to Jacksonville, Florida. It was Ash’s greatest desire, and he wasn’t completely selfish about it. After all, he did include the survival of Pablo (Ray Santiago) and Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) in his deal with Ruby (Lucy Lawless), which left her in control of the Necronomicon.

Naturally, that happy ending is not going to last. And in this photo, it looks like Team Ash will have a surprising new member: Ruby!

Matt Loftus writes:

Ted is just about to become a season regular in the second series of Ash vs Evil Dead (which I predicted here) and we'll get to see his comic timing in the Evil Dead universe once again.

For those who can't (or don't) want to wait for that season premiere, you'll be pleased to hear about Ted's own brand of audio Horror stories Series called Deathly Spirits is available to watch now. 

It's like a throwback to that era of radio suspense teleplays, with Ted "hamming" it up as the creepy storyteller who invites YOU, the listener, in from the rain.

The Evil Dead Cabin - All that's left of the quintessential "cabin in the woods"

Click to enlarge images:

In the woods of Morristown, Tennessee, just past Martin Road, are all that's left of the chimney where the Necronomicon met its fiery demise. That, and a tomb-sized hole in the ground where a witch locked in a cellar desperately tried to lure a young Linda to her doom.

Sara West Switches From Sexual Abuse Victim In 'Don't Tell' To Guest Role In 'Ash Vs Evil Dead'

The Sydney-based West goes to Los Angeles twice a year to audition for roles arranged by her agent UTA and Untitled Management. In Australia she is repped by Shanahan Management. After Don’t Tell wrapped she went to Auckland to film two episodes of Ash vs Evil Dead as a character named Tanya, whom she describes as a bookworm. “It was fun to do because it stretched me in a really different way,” she says. “It was really heightened, whereas everything I normally do is quite close to home in terms of emotions.” She enjoyed her scenes with Bruce Campbell’s Ash Williams and the other regular cast members, observing, “They are all such good friends, a really cool group of people. Bruce is the crazy one and everyone else around him plays it for real.”

Watch Bruce Campbell in the Fake Trailer That Started the Coen Brothers’ Careers

For fans of Joel and Ethan Coen’s Blood Simple, it’s a familiar scene: a bloodied man struggles out of a car and crawls his way down a desolate highway. But look again at that clip above: that’s not Dan Hedaya, who played the role of doomed Julian Marty in the 1984 film. It’s Bruce Campbell. Wait, what’s Bruce Campbell doing here?

What we have above is the teaser trailer for Blood Simple—never before seen online—that the Coen Brothers made to sell investors on what would become their first feature film. Coen fans may be able to make the Bruce Campbell connection from there: the Coens were friends with Evil Dead director Sam Raimi at the time, and it was Raimi who convinced them to make this proof-of-concept trailer in the first place. Campbell had starred in The Evil Dead for Raimi (and assistant editor Joel Coen) three years earlier, and with Evil Dead II in 1987 would begin his reign as a genuine cult celebrity.

“Sam taught us that if you call on the phone and ask people to invest in a movie they’ll tell you to go hell,“ Joel Coen explains in an interview that will be featured on the upcoming Criterion Collection DVD and Blu-ray release of Blood Simple, which will be available in September. “But if you tell them ‘I have a piece of film to show you,’ then some of the would let you come into their living room and set up your little projector and show it to them.”

Bruce Campbell on ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’ Season 2 and What Fans Can Expect

Last year, Starz found its first out-and-out triumph with Ash vs Evil Dead, a continuation of the universe started by Sam Raimi‘s classic horror film The Evil Dead. What proved to be so surprising about the series is not how well the frenzied, hilarious tone of Raimi’s original film, as well as Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness, transferred over, or how well the iconic Bruce Campbell anchored a full season of television, but rather how well the world that Raimi, alongside a variety of writers, directors, and producers, was built and expanded within the ten-episode inaugural season. The fact that every episode was both scary and very funny didn’t hurt at all.

Not surprisingly, the anticipation for the second season has been growing rapidly since the season finale, and we recently got a few bits of major news about the upcoming season. First of all, season 2 is set to premiere on September 23rd on Starz, right in the middle of the kick-off of the fall television season. Second of all, the series will add a trio of actors to its roster, beginning with Raimi’s own brother, Ted Raimi, who is set to play Ash’s best friend from high school who rejoins his pal on the road to a particularly strange hell. On top of that, Michele Hurd, straight off an excellent run on Daredevil‘s second season, will be playing his high school love interest, and Lee Majors will be playing Brock Williams, Ash’s long-lost father.

Last night at the Saturn Awards in Los Angeles, we were able to speak with Bruce Campbell for a few minutes on the red carpet. He talked about season two and what fans can expect, teased a great scene with Ash’s robotic hand, and praised Starz for allowing them the creative freedom to make Evil Dead. Check out what he had to say in the video above and look for plenty more Ash vs Evil Dead in the coming months.

IGN: Ash vs Evil Dead Is Going Bigger and Bloodier in Season 2

Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams in a promo image for Ash vs Evil Dead: Season 2

Terri Schwartz writes:

Walking around the set of Ash vs Evil Dead, it's normal to pass decapitated heads, boxes of intestines and empty skin suits. It's near impossible to leave without a layer of sticky blood on the bottom of your shoes. But none of that phases the cast and crew, because it's nowhere near as absurdly, hilariously insane as what is being filmed.

Starz delighted fans of Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell's cult classic Evil Dead franchise when it announced it would be launching a sequel series reteaming the two called Ash vs. Evil Dead. The first season teamed Ash with new friends Pablo (Ray Santiago) and Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo), who went on a road trip to the infamous Evil Dead cabin to try to destroy the Necronomicon. They ended up unleashing hell -- literally -- in the process.

For Season 2, executive producer Rob Tapert promises that things are going to get even crazier.

"It's a far bigger and more ambitious season than Season 1," he told me, sitting in Ash vs Evil Dead's New Zealand production offices. "From a production point of view, the stories are much bigger, the cast is larger. It's still Evil Dead-like, but the canvas is broader this season. So I think that the writers have posited some really good things, and we've been able to embellish this season, what was in the scripts, and make a really wild, visceral ride for the audience."
