A little more than a month ago, Starz released the first official teaser for their new series Ash vs. Evil Dead. Not much was really shown in that clip, but the network has released two brief new teasers today to whet our whistles.
While the above video is devoid of any footage from the series — which is currently in production in New Zealand — viewers are treated to an image of Ash reunited with his bloody chainsaw. Hearing Bruce Campbell deliver one of his many signature catchphrases also doesn’t hurt.
Here’s the cast rundown, according to the official press release:
The cast is led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, “Burn Notice”) in the role of Ash Williams, Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”) as Ruby a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks, Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick, Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past and Jill Marie Jones (“Sleepy Hollow”) as Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper set to find our anti-hero Ash and prove his responsibility in the grisly murder of her partner.
In case the above teaser wasn’t enough for you, here’s the second bloody clip Starz released today:
Sam Raimi is directing the first episode of Ash vs. Evil Dead, which he wrote with Ivan Raimi (Darkman, Army of Darkness, Drag Me to Hell), and Tom Spezialy (Chuck, Reaper). Raimi is also serving as executive producer on the 10-episode series with Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell.
Ash vs. Evil Dead is set to premiere on Starz sometime this fall.
