“Ash Vs. Evil Dead” Renewed Before It Even Premieres!

evOne of the most eagerly awaited new series is Ash vs. Evil Dead for Starz, it is having its premiere on Halloween (most appropriately), but in a surprising turn (and a pleasant one at that), SlashFilm is reporting that the series, produced by Sam Raimi and bringing Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell as the chainsaw-handed hero, has actually been given the green light for a season 2 renewal, before the series even premieres.

Starz announced the Ash vs. Evil Dead renewal in a statement. “One season isn’t enough to satisfy the fans’ two-decade-long appetite for more Ash,” said Starz managing director Carmi Zlotnik. “The early fan and press support, along with the international broadcaster demand for more story, have made it clear that the adventures of Ash Williams can’t end with Season 1.”

Season 2 is expected to air in late 2016. It’s unclear how many episodes Season 2 will have, but Deadline says it’ll be at least as long as Season 1, which consisted of ten episodes. Campbell is confirmed to return as Ash, of course, and Lucy Lawless will be back as well. Raimi, Campbell, and Robert Tapert will executive Season 2 (just as they did Season 1), with exec producer Craig DiGregorio continuing to serve as showrunner.

So are you happy about this news? Are you excited about getting some more “Ash” into your life? Still not sure? Then check out the video below of the first four minutes from the first episode directed by Raimi. Just as a warning, parts of it might be considered NSFW.

So what do you think now? Has a Raimi filled universe of Ash been missing in your life? Let us know in the comments below!
