Evil Dead TV Series Will Star Bruce Campbell

July 28th, 2014 by Andrew McCarroll 1 Comment

Back on Friday Sam Raimi broke the news that he’s been developing a television series based on his The Evil Dead franchise. Well it seems he had another nugget he neglected to mention, that Bruce Campbell would be returning as Ash in the show. The actor responded to a fan on Twitter last night confirming that the plan is for the cult icon to return as the deadite bashing hero.

No word on how-or if this new series will tie in to the recent Evil Dead remake/reboot/sequel/prequel. Rami also revealed that he and his brother Ivan, would be writing the show along with Bruce Campbell.

Very early days on this one but so far it sounds extremely ……..Groovy.

Andrew McCarroll never quite built on the dizzying career heights that he hit at 6 years old, when as a member of the “Ghostbusters” he would charge his neighbours to remove any unwanted spectres. Now retired from slaying spooks, he spends his time obsessing over superheroes (especially Batman) and devouring shows like Dexter, Game of Thrones and Archer in a manner that would make Galactus proud.
