Hitting on Halloween, the debut episode of Ash vs The Evil Dead on Starz Channel will bring one of horror’s most beloved hero back on the global scale.
The new half-hour show, airing on Starz, casts Bruce Campbell once again in the role of Ash Williams, a stock boy (turned stock man) who’s been fighting the forces of darkness for most of his adult life. The show will run 10 episodes in its first season and pairs the comedy of Army of Darkness with the blood & guts horror of Evil Dead 2.
