'Evil Dead' TV Series Heading to Starz with Bruce Campbell Reprising Role as Ash!

Evil Dead will be heading to Starz as a new television series… and the film’s original star Bruce Campbell will even be reprising his role as Ash!

Here is the show’s logline (via Entertainment Weekly): “Bruce Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, 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. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its ‘Evil’ grip.”

Bruce played Ash in three of the horror series’ films and he produced the remake that hit theaters in 2013. Sam Raimi, the original film’s director, will executive produce the series in addition to writing and directing the first episode.

“I’m really excited to bring this series to the Evil Dead fans worldwide – it’s going to be everything they have been clamoring for: serious deadite ass-kicking and plenty of outrageous humor,” Bruce said in a statement.
