Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2 NYCC Panel Recap

Moderator: Doug Benson

Panel: Bruce Campbell / Ray Santiago / Dana DeLorenzo / Michelle Hurd / Ted Raimi / Lucy Lawless / Lee Majors

The Ash vs. Evil Dead panel began with the crowd being given foam hand chainsaws, which were put to good use.

Benson started with Lee Majors, asking if he was an Ash or Evil Dead fan before this. His answer, “Nope.”

He continued with the story of seeing the first season, which he called a “Bat-shit crazy ride.” He was chased down on the lot by Campbell, and told him “I’d love to play your dad.”

Campbell gushed about getting an icon like Lee Majors (whom he described as being an ‘ass-grabbing ladies man’ in his heyday, born with hair on his body and known for his impressive man cleavage.

Bruce Campbell went on to describe where we’re at in season 2 – in the way that only Bruce Campbell can. He talked about Ted’s character, Ray, and how we shouldn’t cheer for him, as he’s a dude who leaves women’s drinks laced with “K” and never left his hometown.

“Only losers stay in Elk Grove?” Benson asked.

“Yup,” Campbell answered.

Campbell signaled out Ted, Raimi, who has appeared all over the Evil Dead franchise (as feet in the original; Possessed Henrietta in EV2; as several extras in Army of Darkness). Campbell used Ted as a jumping off point to tease fans about other faces from the franchise that will be making cameo appearances in AvsED seaon 2. “We know you want your ‘Holy Sh*t’ moments,” Campbell said, assuring fans that the show would deliver just that.
