First Look Teaser Trailer and Art for Ash VS Evil Dead on STARZ

The STARZ Original series “Ash vs Evil Dead” released a motion graphic teaser it's the 10-episode first season. The teaser will make its on-air debut during the “Outlander” premiere on Saturday, April 4 at 9 PM Eastern / Pacific Time on STARZ, but you can watch it now!

“Ash vs Evil Dead,” which is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead and is set to premiere around late fall of 2015. The half-hour series will be filmed in New Zealand and be produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, Bruce Campbell (the original filmmakers of the franchise) and Craig DiGregorio who will serve as executive producer and showrunner.  Ivan Raimi will co-executive produce and Aaron Lam (“Spartacus”) will serve as producer. 

Bruce Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash Williams, the S-Mart stock boy and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years of his life avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. Which pretty much sounds like my existence. Just replace Evil Dead with Sallie Mae, and we are on to something.

Unfortunately for Ash, when a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, he is forced out of retirement by destiny! You just cant mess with destiny.

The cast is led by Bruce Campbell in the role of Ash Williams, naturally, and Lucy Lawless as Ruby, a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks. The show also includes Jill Marie Jones (“Sleepy Hollow”) as Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper set to find Ash and prove his involvement in the grisly murder of her partner. Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) will play Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick. Lastly, Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) joins the cast as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past.  

Check out the very teasy teaser below!

I want to note that I was completely in the dark about this! I sorta heard rumors about this show, but there has been rumors about Evil Dead and Army of Darkness stuff going on for YEARS. Holy crap! I could have more Evil Dead stuff by this Fall. Looks like I already have my plans for Halloween laid out.
