Earlier today, during Starz's TCA press tour panel, Ash Vs. Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell hinted that the upcoming series may lead to more Evil Dead movies. Of course, it's a bit too early to be speculating about new movies, since Ash Vs. Evil Dead doesn't premiere until October 31. But during the presentation today, the Starz Twitter account released the first photo of Lucy Lawless from the highly-anticipated series. Lucy Lawless joined the cast in March as Ruby, described as, "a mysterious figure who is myopic in her quest to hunt down the source of the recent Evil outbreaks." While she eventually teams up with Bruce Campbell's Ash, she also believes that he is the source of the Deadite invasion.
Lucy Lawless joins Bruce Campbell as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. »
Starz's Ash Vs. Evil Dead is coming off a rousing Comic-Con panel, where the cast and producers debuted the first trailer, and announced that the upcoming series will debut Saturday, October 31 at 9 Pm Et/Pt. Stars Bruce Campbell, Lucy Lawless, executive producer Sam Raimi and showrunner Craig Digregorio all appeared at a panel for the TCA press tour earlier today, where it was revealed that the show may actually tie into more movies. The series is set years after the original movies The Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn and Army Of Darkness, with Bruce Campbell claiming that fans will be clamoring for even more carnage after the series airs this year.
"This series will force us to make more movies. That's only 10 hours of programming; we need eight more movies. Making a fourth movie would work. No matter what we give them, it will never be enough. »
Recently at Comic-Con, Lawless discussed her character in Ash vs Evil Dead:
"My character's name is Knowby, K-n-o-w-b-y. Professor Knowby was the original owner of the Necronomicon and she’s related to him. So, she's definitely carrying a big ass chip on her shoulder as to what Ash did to her family and the fact that he has begun a new Deadite plague now too.
She's absolutely gunning for him in a very obsessive way. Everything is all his fault, and she’s right to blame him."

Ash is back: protector of humanity, true ladies’ man, slayer of deadites, S-Mart employee of the month. In 1981, director Sam Raimi and actor Bruce Campbell changed the face of horror with the schlocky, ugly and downright hilarious B-movie that is Evil Dead. Then they did it again, six years later, with the chaotic masterpiece that is Evil Dead II.
These two films saw Ash, a normal guy with a poor taste in holiday destinations, having to slaughter his friends and girlfriends after they became consumed by the evil souls that haunt the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis. They rounded off the trilogy with the flawed but truly hilarious action film Army Of Darkness (1991), in which the noble hero of the first two films heads back in time and rescues Medieval civilisation from the terrors of the Evil Dead.
While Raimi returned to the franchise with a remake in 2013 and Campbell played a »

Anghus Houvouras with his five best trailers from this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con…
What a weekend. When Marvel Studios announced they wouldn’t have much of a presence at this year’s Comic Con, I wondered how much impact the events in Hall H would have. The annual pissing contest between studios has become one of the most interesting aspects of the annual convention with everyone vying for a sliver of our collective pop culture attention span. However, even with Marvel bowing out, there was a ridiculous amount of jaw dropping presentations. Here’s the best of the best with some lingering doubts to provide perspective.
For example: San Diego Comic-Con provided us with a plethora of amazing geek culture moments this weekend…
Lingering Doubts: …but after the initial thrill wears off I remember that it’s basically mecca for uninspired redundancy.
Here are the five most intriguing trailers »

One of the more talked about trailers coming out of the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con was undoubtedly Ash vs Evil Dead, which premiered during a packed panel on Friday night. Daily Dead had the opportunity to catch up with the crew from Sam Raimi’s brand new Starz series the following day to talk all things Evil Dead and get some more details on the highly anticipated series that premieres this Halloween.
Bruce, because you've had such a great career in horror and on television as well, does all of this feel like a homecoming to you, being able to bring Evil Dead to TV?
Bruce Campbell: Oh yeah, because I like the TV format. I like how fast it is. »

If there were any doubts whether Starz' new horror/comedy series "Ash vs. Evil Dead" would fail to live up to the legacy of Sam Raimi's first three Evil Dead movies, they quickly and swiftly were put to bed, then stabbed forty times for good measure and shot with a boomstick just for the hell of it with the first trailer released on Friday at Comic-Con and online shortly after. Showcasing our one-handed, denture-wearing, waist-strap compacted hero Ash (Bruce Campbell) these many years after the events of Army of Darkness -- fulfilling his days working at the convenience store (still), "telling lies about how he lost his hand in bars late at night," and being "not really the guy who should be dealing with this right now," as Campbell stated earlier -- and giving a brief perspective into the gore and pus-filled adventures in store for him and his »

Ash vs. Evil Dead is the newest series from Starz, though it’s the continuation of a long-beloved property. The show is based on the classic films Evil Dead and Army of Darkness, and comes from director Sam Raimi. Bruce Campbell stars as the unlikely hero Ash. We got a chance to sit down with Raimi, his brother Ivan Raimi, and stars Lucy Lawless and Campbell himself to talk about the show at San Diego Comic-Con. From the trailer, which premiered on Friday, you can tell the tone of the show is hardcore horror with a strong comedic influence. You’d expect nothing less from the sequel to these films. The show takes place in present day, after Ash -- who is now the world’s oldest stock boy -- makes a stupid mistake, and the Deadites return. Here are 14 things we learned about the series (and you can watch »

Ash is as badass as ever in Ash vs Evil Dead...with some help. Bruce Campbell reprises his Evil Dead and Army of Darkness role in the new Starz sequel series, whose very bloody trailer debuted at 2015 Comic-Con in San Diego on Friday and online. In the video, the 57-year-old actor is seen waving his trusty 12-gauge, double-barreled Remington shotgun, or his Boomstick, as well as his chainsaw as he fights the baddies. He's also seen trying on a waist cincher. Hey, it's been a couple of decades...a hero's gotta do what he needs to do. And more cracks are made about Ash's aging—let's just give him the benefit of the doubt and say he took one too many »
With the key creative partners behind the original film all returning, there's little chance the new television adaptation of the "Evil Dead" franchise will be deadite-level dumb.

Evil Dead fans might want to stay home this Halloween, because that's when the TV spinoff is making its long-awaited debut.
To celebrate the announcement, Starz has released a new live action trailer, which gives fans a look at Ash and his new friends.

We're also treated to a brief glimpse of Campbell's co-stars, including Lucy Lawless as the mysterious Ruby, Dana DeLorenzo as moody wild child Kelly Maxwell and Jill Marie Jones as disgraced Michigan State Trooper Amanda Fisher. »
Its been 25 years since we’ve last seen or heard from our favorite doomed, deadite slaying, wise cracking hero Ashley J. Williams, or more iconically, Ash. For years rumors, false starts, and hopeful happenings emerged regarding Evil Dead 4, a true sequel that would follow the events of Army Of Darkness and reunite the trio of director Sam Raimi, producer Rob Tapert, and leading man Bruce Campbell for another round of fighting the evil and the dead. Instead we got a departure in the form of Evil Dead, a reboot with the full support of the aforementioned that offered a slick, grim, and gory assault that left us begging for more.
While more rumors persisted of a follow up, fans were still asking that decades old question, “where’s Ash?”. Well, prepare to hail to the king once more…the first trailer for Ash Vs. Evil Dead is here, and it »
