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!
