Starz released a new teaser trailer and photo today for the highly anticipated 10-episode second season of the half-hour series Ash Vs. Evil Dead, executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, Bruce Campbell, Ivan Raimi, and Craig DiGregorio who serves as executive producer and showrunner. The second season roars back into action with Ash leaving his beloved Jacksonville and returning to his hometown of Elk Grove. There, he confronts Ruby. The former enemies have to form an uneasy alliance as Elk Grove soon becomes the nucleus of evil.
The cast is led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, Burn Notice) in the role of Ash Williams and Lucy Lawless (Salem, Spartacus) as Ruby, who now possesses the powerful Necronomicon. Also starring is Ray Santiago (Touch, Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, Ash's loyal sidekick dealing with the trauma he suffered in the cabin, and Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, who, grief-stricken after the death of her parents, plots revenge against The Evil Dead. There will also be a number of new characters introduced in Season 2.
As previously announced, Lee Majors, Ted Raimi and Michelle Hurd join the cast this season as Brock Williams, Ash's father, Chet Kaminski, Ash's childhood best friend, and Linda, Ash's high school love respectively. The full first season of Ash vs Evil Dead can be viewed now on the Starz App on Chromecast, Apple TV (4th generation and newer), iPhones and iPads running iOS 7.0 or higher, Google Nexus Player, Sony Android TV, as well as most Android phones, tablets, and TV devices. Starz renewed the series for Season 2, just days before the season premiere back in October.
Sam Raimi serves as executive producer with Rob Tapert (Evil Dead, Spartacus, Xena: Warrior Princess), Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, Burn Notice) and Ivan Raimi (Drag Me to Hell, Spider-Man 3) along with Craig DiGregorio (Workaholics, Chuck) who serves as executive producer/showrunner. Aaron Lam (Spartacus) and Moira Grant (Spartacus) serve as producers. Starz hasn't announced when Season 2 will debut yet, but perhaps they're saving that announcement for Comic-Con.
Starz confirmed last week that Season 2 stars Bruce Campbell, Lucy Lawless, Dana DeLorenzo, Ray Santiago and Lee Majors will be joined by producers Rob Tapert, Ted Raimi and Sam Raimi for a Comic-Con 2016 panel on Saturday, July 23 from 6:45 PM to 7:45 PM in Room 6A. There will also be a special screening that night in Room 6A at 10 PM where fans can get an early look at Season 2.
