The internet went into overdrive back in November, with horror fans collectively having to change their underwear, as Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell officially announced Starz had green-lit a 10-episode series, titled Ash vs. Evil Dead, with a scheduled release date in 2015.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Bruce Campbell has elaborated more on the series, stating that it will revolve around an older Ash, who is not only suffering from an array of personal demons (specifically “survivors guilt”), but has to take on a whole new kind of evil, in form of the Deadite plague. The 30-minute show will also feature two younger co-stars – no doubt, helping Ash take on this new brand of evil – with Campbell hoping Jennifer Lawrence will agree to star.

Campbell explained to EW that another film would be too expensive; denuding them of their creative freedom, and that the TV medium will allow them to do what they want to do – thusly, giving the fans what they want. Groovy!

You can check out the whole story in the latest issue of EW, but we will be sure to keep you updated.

Derek Robertson has dabbled in many aspects of the media industry from a young age. He has always had an admiration for, film, science fiction and all things geek-like. Working in the music industry with Sony/BMG Records gave Derek insight and experience into video directing. Thusly, for many years he took a hands-on, multi-disciplinary approach in creating and editing treatments; working with performance artists, writing and producing music and working both; in front of, and behind the camera. Studying a Msc in Forensic Psychology has embedded a conceptual ethos that has spawned his signature writing style that he now infuses whilst blogging for numerous websites; writing music reviews, movie news, and reviewing network shows et al., . Derek continues to try and erase the boundaries between the homogenous and the insanely dull, culturally enmeshing contemporary socio-political aspects into the mix of the monolithic media industry.
