Season Three Teaser Revealed for ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’

Starz delivered horror fans a Halloween treat as they revealed a teaser trailer for the third season of Ash vs Evil Dead. Like the two seasons before it, season three will be 10 episodes long.

The one minute and twenty-five seconds trailer features everyone’s favorite horror hero, Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) doing what he does best, killing deadites. A main plot line of the third season has Ash discovering his long lost daughter. From the trailer, it is safe to say that the third season of the series will feature plenty of comedy and buckets of blood. read more

Ash vs. Evil Dead Season 3 Coming in February to Starz

Prepare to get groovy in 2018.  According to the show’s official Twitter account, the wonderfully gory Starz original series Ash vs. Evil Dead will kick off their third season on Sunday, February 25th, 2018.  The cable network also released new promotional artwork for the upcoming season, which can be seen below.

The first two seasons of the horror-comedy series have been a critical success, though the ratings do still leave much to be desired.  The hardcore fan-base of the Evil Dead franchise are solely responsible for keeping the show afloat, which is a shame because the action and writing are incredible and gore factor unparalleled.  Bruce Campbell revised his role from the original films as Ash Williams, the shotgun-wielding, chainsaw-handed time-traveling reluctant hero who is locked in the ultimate battle with the deadites, who are decipals of the Necronomicon (book of the dead.)  Joining Ash in his quest are friends Pablo (Ray Santiago) and Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo), while the wonderful Lucy Lawless portrays his on-again, off-again friend and enemy Ruby.  Starz had previously announced that the show was getting picked up for a third season last October, though no other details were offered at the time. read more

Nicolas Winding Refn’s Maniac Cop Remake to Enter Principal Photography This Summer

Variety reports that the remake of William Lustig’s 1988 Bruce Campbell/Tom Atkins cult classic, Maniac Cop has been greenlit, and is set for shooting in Los Angeles this summer. 

While remake news is always destined to trigger mixed reactions due to fan investment in the original production, this particular project has a lot going for it. Comic book writer turned screenwriter Ed Brubaker (Captain America: Winter Soldier, Batman: Black and White, an episode of Westworld) has written the script along with Nicolas Winding Refn (Bronson, Drive, Neon Demons). Lustig will return to the production, serving as a creative producer, along with Refn. John Hyams (Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning) is set to direct the project. read more

Ash vs. Evil Dead Already a Go for Season 3!

With just one episode of season two in the books, Starz has announced that it has renewed Ash vs. Evil Dead for a third season. While no surprise to fans of the show, the move to announce the renewal so quickly can be seen as a signal to other networks that television viewers have not yet had their fill of mainstream horror TV shows just yet.

The announcement also came one day after cast members appeared in a panel at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York as a part of the annual New York Comic-Con. At the panel, series regulars Bruce Campbell, Dana DeLorenzo, Ray Santiago, Lucy Lawless, Ted Raimi, and Michelle Hurd were joined by the legendary Lee Majors who plays Ash’s father in season two. read more

ASH VS EVIL DEAD’s Bruce Campbell to Campaign to Make “Emmys Groovy Again”

Bruce Campbell will be campaigning to make the “Emmys groovy again” and aim for a Lead Actor In A Comedy Series nom for his role on Ash Vs Evil Dead.  There will be billboards going up in the next week around intersections like Sunset and Fairfax in Los Angeles to promote his role as Ash Williams in the Starz series. He will be taking a less traditional route, with a fan-driven social media and digital paid advertising campaign. It starts tomorrow with four different video ads.

Starz EVP Communications Theano Apostolou said, “If there’s one thing that the 2016 campaign season has taught us, it’s that voters respond to a bold pitch. You can’t really go wrong by getting out of the way and letting Bruce Campbell do what he does best… which is pitch Bruce Campbell. We think his chainsaw hand will help cut through all the noise.” read more
