Ash vs Evil Dead returns October 2, just in time for Halloween season, and also the last few weeks leading up to something even more terrifying: the 2016 election. The official season two poster dropped today with a winking nod to patriotism, and with it a reminder that the best salutes are done with chainsaws.
Horror legends Sam Raimi, Ivan Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Bruce Campbell hunker down for the commentary track of Ash vs Evil Dead’s first episode, in which Ash, Campbell’s extremely reluctant hero, realizes he hasn’t quite left those nasty Deadites in the past after all.
Ash vs Evil Dead recently bumped up its return date from Halloween to October 2, and the gifts just keep coming. Here’s first look at season two’s big bad, a powerful demon named Baal who’s played by Joel Tobeck (Sons of Anarchy, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King).
The cast and crew of Ash vs Evil Dead did a great job talking up season two at the show’s Comic-Con panel and press room. But the ultimate proof that the show’s return is cause for celebration came with a preview screening of the first episode, which won’t air on Starz until Halloween. It’s fantastic.
Yesterday’s Ash vs Evil Dead Comic-Con panel was catnip for all the gorehounds who turned out to see Bruce “El Jefe” Campbell in person—as well as Sam Raimi, Lucy Lawless, Lee Majors, Ted Raimi, Dana DeLorenzo, Ray Santiago and Rob Tapert. Most also participated in a press room earlier in the day.
As we count the seconds until Ash vs Evil Dead returns in October, we can gaze upon this first image of Ash’s father, played by Lee Majors. The actor is best-known for his role as the bionic superspy on 1970s TV juggernaut The Six Million Dollar Man, and though he’s now almost 80, he still looks more than ready to…
Season two of Ash vs Evil Dead is taking our hero back to Elk Grove, Michigan. And since his home state is where all his troubles started, you could say that Ash isn’t exactly happy to be going back. Especially since it interrupts his partying in Jacksonville.
The boomstick, the chainsaw, gushing guts galore, a puppet, and a mechanical bull—all have their very brief moments in this tantalizingly quick teaser for Ash vs Evil Dead’s second season, which comes on the heels of last week’s new image from the show. (That’s another new one, above.)
Bubba Ho-Tep is about foul-mouthed ancient mummies, conspiracy theories, and the ultimate battle between good and evil. It’s also a surprisingly layered tale about growing old, regrets, and redemption. And it stars Bruce Campbell as Elvis Presley. Is this the perfect B-movie? If not, it’s damn near close.
The outstandingly trashy cult classic Maniac Cop—made in 1988 by legendary B-movie director William Lustig, and starring the singular Robert Z’Dar—has been threatened with getting a remake for some time, with John Hyams (The Originals, Z Nation) directing from a script by comics writer Ed Brubaker. And it just got a…
No cackling demons, no books bound in human flesh, no boomstick, not even any Kelly and/or Pablo. Just a certain chainsaw-flailing Ash Williams, partying it up like there’s no tomorrow… which, with season one of Ash Vs Evil Dead ending like it did, there might not be. Season two drops later this year and we cannot …
Because let’s be honest—this is a damn groovy figure indeed.
Merry early Christmas, Ash vs Evil Dead fans! In this delightful clip from episode nine, “Bound in the Flesh,” Ash, Kelly, and Pablo take a quick porch meeting to strategize. At stake: protecting the fates of those apple-cheeked young backpackers, who’re otherwise destined for the “night train to Kill-a-delphia.”

We’ve made no secret of our slobbering love for Ash vs Evil Dead, which has just three episodes left in its kick-ass first season. What will we do between January 2 and whenever season two starts? Well, we’ll binge-watch season one a lot ... and ponder all the reasons why it’s so freaking enjoyable.
Just a fun little reminder that every show’s supernatural problems would be easily fixed just by having Ash show up. Read the full tweet below.
It’s been a while since we’ve been as excited about a new show as we are about Ash vs Evil Dead, which expands the world of Sam Raimi’s movies with humor, horror, and so much glorious Bruce Campbell. We spoke with executive producer Craig DiGregorio to learn what’s next for the show.
Ash vs Evil Dead debuted on Halloween, which is thematically appropriate. But this would be our new favorite show any time of year: it’s funny, raunchy, goofy, and awesomely gory. And, naturally, star Bruce Campbell slays. Hail to the King, baby!
The first episode of Ash vs. Evil Dead was everything an Evil Dead fan could hope for—and more. Start your chainsaws, because this is going to be a very groovy ride.
For decades, fans have been asking Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell about a potential Evil Dead 4. Now, finally, they can just point them to Starz where the new show Ash vs. Evil Dead will live. But Raimi was working on a sequel and it sounded crazy.
