Ok, firstly, it’s now definite that we’re getting a second season of Ash Vs Evil Dead…which, frankly, is beyond groovy!

Secondly, Ash, it turns out, has a father who lives in the world along with him and he’ll feature in season 2. And, as if that’s not enough, he’ll be played by The Fall Guy himself, Lee Majors!

Honestly, how awesome is that!?

Majors (below) will play Brock Williams, Ash’s father.

Oh and Ted Raimi will play Chet Kaminski, Ash’s childhood best friend.

It is also confirmed that the second season will be ten half-hour episodes.

The second season of the Starz Original series “Ash vs Evil Dead” will be 10 half-hour episodes, we’ve confirmed. 

No release date yet but needless to say, if we were excited before, we’re giddy as all hell now!

The cast is led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, “Burn Notice”) in the role of Ash Williams; Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”) as Ruby, who now possesses the powerful Necronomicon; Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, Ash’s loyal sidekick dealing with the trauma he suffered in the cabin; and Dana DeLorenzo (Harold and Kumar Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, who, grief-stricken after the death of her parents, plots revenge against The Evil Dead.

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….
