EW: 'Evil Dead' scoop: Bruce Campbell reveals series details

It took 23 years, but Bruce Campbell is finally returning to his iconic role of Ash—the arrogant, loudmouthed, one-handed badass who squared off against prankish possessive spirits in three Sam Raimi films (including 1987’s cult classic Evil Dead II). Starz is resurrecting the franchise with the half-hour horror-comedy series Ash vs. Evil Dead; 10 episodes are planned for late 2015.

The set-up: Ash is living in a trailer park and working his latest thankless big-box store job when a return of the Deadites prompts him to take a road trip with two young co-workers (and, of course, his trusty boomstick). To find out what we can expect from the show, EW had an exclusive interview with the king himself.

Bruce Campbell talks Sequel Series, Ash vs. Evil Dead

Image created by jeff051477

Fandom was effectively rocked this November when it was officially announced Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert would return to the world of Evil Dead for a 10-episode series to debut in 2015. Titled Ash vs. Evil Dead, the sequel show will pick up on an older Ash as he’s “forced to face his demons” and a new Deadite plague. Naming it one of the most anticipated shows of next year, the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly has words from cult icon and Evil Dead star Campbell on what to expect. 

EW expands on Ash vs. Evil Dead’s set-up, calling it a “half-hour horror comedy where Ash takes a road trip to banish his demons alongside two young helpers and his trusty boomstick.”

The star tells the publication a follow-up film would ultimately have been too expensive, but “in the format of a TV show, we could give people exactly what they wanted and expand the character and the story even more.” Regarding his and Raimi’s return, Campbell says, “The [fan reaction to the 2013 Evil Dead remake] was all ‘Yeah, yeah, that was nice fellas, but we still want the real deal.’ This is it.”
