If you’re lucky enough to be at San Diego Comic-Con and can get into the Ash vs Evil Dead panel, you’ll get exclusive footage of the upcoming second season. I’m obviously very envious of everyone that gets a seat in the audience of that panel.
Thankfully, Nerdist got an exclusive photo of the gang poised and ready to kick some deadite ass.
If this photo looks a little strange to you, there’s a reason. Ruby (Lucy Lawless) is teaming up with Ash (Bruce Campbell), Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo), and Pablo (Ray Santiago)! At the end of last season (SPOILERS), she hunted Ash down for control of the Necromonicon so that she could bring chaos back to the world. Ash took the deal against the wishes of Kelly and Pablo because it’s Ash and he can’t resist a sweet lifestyle in Jacksonville, Florida. But Ash does have a heart under that super tight girdle, plus the need to be a hero will obviously win out as he gets his chainsaw hand and boomstick ready to fight.
So why is Ruby teaming up with the gang? There’s an even bigger threat than her and she needs the help of the only group of people able to fight deadites. The big bad is located in Ash’s hometown, Elk Grove, where we will get to meet Ash’s father, Brock Williams, played by Lee Majors. His father won’t be the only reunion Ash will be having in Elk Grove, he’ll also reunite with his best friend, Chet Kaminski (Ted Raimi), and his high school sweetheart, Linda (Michelle Hurd).
Ash vs Evil Dead will return this fall on Starz.
