The Evil Dead TV series, Ash Vs The Evil Dead, has added another fan favourite cast member to make life difficult for Bruce Campbell’s Ash…

Xena herself, Lucy Lawless, has signed on to star as Ruby, “a mysterious figure dead-set on crushing the uprising [of the Evil Dead] at any cost. The only problem is, she believes Ash is the source of the Evil’s resurgence.”

The 10-part series from Starz is a sequel to the first three Evil Dead movies and sees Sam Riami, Bruce Campbell and Lucy Lawless reunited for the first time since the heady days of Xena: Warrior Princess and is set decades after the original movies.

We’re cautiously optimistic about this one…

Ash vs. The Evil Dead hits Starz later this year.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
