With Ash Vs Evil Dead Season 2 returning earlier this week – and it was glorious! – it was inevitable that New York Comic Con would have some cool news.
And it does.
But first. Speaking to comicbook, Campbell revealed he wants a lot of Evil dead chaos over the next few years: “I’ll take five seasons of this. Give the fans a big boost of the material; they’ll have 25 fresh hours of the show after this, after we’re done [with five seasons], and that’s like making 12 movies!
“I’m delighted with Ash. He’s officially the best character that I’ve ever played, and it’s one that I’m going to investigate and explore until they tell me I can’t do it anymore. I find Ash, with all of his flaws, all his foibles, all his mistakes, so wonderfully human that it’s hard for me to relate to super hero movies.”
In an interiew over at AICN he also hinted he’d be hopeful for a movie at the end of the show… but at this point we’re just taking it that there’s plans for many more Ash adventures and we’re ok with that.
Now, over at NYCC, Campbel revealed that Season 2 will take fans by surprise and may even have some Evil Dead royalty appearing:
The star also suggested that there will be Easter Eggs this season, possible related to his costar (and frequent Evil Dead series player) Ted Raimi. We can expect “certain characters” to pop up, “played by the same thespians,” said Campbell. “Because you want your holy s#!t moments, and there will be two or three moments this season where you go… holy s#!t.”
We’re also hearing that, with Ash returning to his home town this season, we will see the home of his ill-fated girlfriend Linda who died in the original movie(s) and we’re also hearing that she herself may be back… although we have no idea how.
But hey, we have faith in Ash and the Evil Dead.
