Hail to the king, baby! It looks as if we won’t have to wait long to see Bruce Campbell on our TV screens once again. Deadline is reporting that Campbell is set to host and executive produce a Ripley’s Believe It or Not! reboot on the Travel Channel. Early reports indicate that the network has ordered 10 one-hour episodes of the series.
On Halloween of 2015, Campbell returned to the role that made him famous, the shotgun-wielding, wisecracking Ash Williams of the beloved Evil Dead franchise in a series properly titled, Ash vs. Evil Dead, which quickly became a fan favorite and the perfect addition to the movie trilogy and acted as a sequel to those films. The series costarred Ray Santiago, Dana DeLorenzo, and Lucy Lawless with original “Lady of the Evil Dead,” Ellen Sandweiss even made a surprise appearance, reprising her role as Cheryl Williams. Sadly, on April 20, 2018 Starz announced that they had cancelled Ash vs. Evil Dead after three seasons.
Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is set to debut in the summer of 2019. Keep it locked to Horror News Network for more on this exciting development.
