Ash vs Evil Dead series begins production this month

Ash vs Evil Dead

After many long years, fans will get the chance to finally see the return of Bruce Campbell as Ash in the upcoming Starz series, Ash vs Evil Dead. Check out the photo above with executive producers Rob Tapert, Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi. Serving as the executive showrunner is Craig DiGregorio.

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.

Campbell is joined by Lucy Lawless (Salem, Spartacus) as Ruby, Ray Santiago (Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, and Jill Marie Jones (Sleepy Hollow) as Amanda Fisher.

Raimi is directing the first episode from a script by Ivan Raimi, Craig DiGregorio, Tom Spezialy and himself.

The 10-episode half-hour series premieres in fall 2015 on Starz.
