October seems so far away but at the same time it is within in my grasp. My favorite holiday takes place during this month. That, of course, is Halloween. This year becomes just a little more special thanks to Starz. The Season Two premiere of Ash vs. Evil Dead will be on October 31st, which means a bloody good time for all.
STARZ released a new teaser trailer and photo today for the highly anticipated 10-episode second season of the half-hour series executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, Bruce Campbell, Ivan Raimi, and Craig DiGregorio who serves as executive producer and showrunner.
The second season roars back into action with Ash leaving his beloved Jacksonville and returning to his hometown of Elk Grove. There, he confronts Ruby. The former enemies have to form an uneasy alliance as Elk Grove soon becomes the nucleus of evil.
The cast is led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, “Burn Notice”) in the role of Ash Williams; Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”) as Ruby, who now possesses the powerful Necronomicon; Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, Ash’s loyal sidekick dealing with the trauma he suffered in the cabin; and Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, who, grief-stricken after the death of her parents, plots revenge against The Evil Dead.
As previously announced, Lee Majors, Ted Raimi, and Michelle Hurd join the cast this season as Brock Williams, Ash’s father, Chet Kaminski, Ash’s childhood best friend, and Linda, Ash’s high school love respectively.
So as you are handing out candy on this frightful night, please make sure to tune into Starz for the Season 2 premiere or I will make sure a deadite will be visiting you.
