Ash is getting ready to revisit his hometown in the upcoming Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 2. And it promises to give us a side of the man with the chainsaw hand we've never seen before. We already know that Lee Majors is stepping in to play Ashley William's dad Brock Williams. But with this introduction comes some unexpected character development for our hero.
Ash Vs. Evil Dead came as one of 2015's bigger surprises in the sheer fact that it didn't disappoint fans. Original creator Sam Raimi stepped into direct the first episode, setting the tone. And while it sometimes looked a little on the 'cheap' side, these continuing adventures for Ashley Williams, Deadite Hunter, proved to be a lot of fun. Even though the show is now ready to step into some more serious business, don't expect the tone of Ash Vs. Evil Dead to change in its sophomore season. »
Ash has spent more time partying than killing deadites in the time between Army of Darkness and the TV series, so it’s no surprise that the first image of Ash vs Dead Season 2 shows him chainsaw-tapping a keg in Florida. The new season may start off with Ash living the good life, but executive producer Craig Digregorio promises that the “party is cut short when [Ash] must return home to continue the fight against evil.”
“The second season of the Starz Original series “Ash vs Evil Dead” will be 10 half-hour episodes. 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 (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, »

Even though it doesn't return to Starz until this Halloween, today we get our first look at Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 2! TVInsider has shared the epic first photo, which shows one big kegger going on down in Florida. We don't yet have an officially premiere date for Ash's return. But from the looks of things, this is going to be one hell of a party!
Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 2 will pick up right where Season 1 left off. Bruce Campbell's titular hero has left the world of killing Deadites behind. Now, he is living it up in the Florida Keys. And what better way to do that than with a huge kegger on the beach. In this sneak peek, we get to see Ash using his chainsaw hand to slice through the beer keg. Says executive producer Craig Digregorio about the scenerio.

Today kicks off New York Toy Fair 2016. And with it comes our first look at the exciting action figure line-up for Ash Vs. Evil Dead. Neca is bringing everyone's favorite chainsaw-handed Deadite killer to stores everywhere later this year. And the Bruce Campbell doppleganger will not be arriving alone.
This first trio of action figures is based on Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 1. We get Ashley Williams in his signature blue shirt, with chainsaw hand and shotgun. The second action figure coming our way is an Ash variant, which shows the aging stock boy and lothario in his red ValueShop smock. And the third figure is based on the likeness of the show's most popular Deadite Eligos, who appeared over the course of the entire first season run.
No pricing has been listed, and it isn't known when we'll be able to get our hands on these exciting new action figures. »
