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."

Yesterday we brought you some cast images from the upcoming Walking Dead companion series Fear the Walking Dead, and now we have a look at some of the zombies set to feature in the upcoming show – and, given that the spinoff takes place earlier in the outbreak, these zombies are looking a little fresher…
Living in the same universe as The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead is a gritty drama that explores the onset of the undead apocalypse through the lens of a fractured family. Set in a city where people come to escape, shield secrets, and bury their pasts, a mysterious outbreak threatens to disrupt what little stability high school guidance counselor Madison Clark and English teacher Travis Manawa have managed to assemble. The everyday pressure of blending two families while dealing with resentful, escapist, and strung out children takes a back seat when society begins to break down. »

Are you ready for a “dark and twisted” Zachary Levi?
That’s what the beloved Chuck star and his on-screen wife, newcomer Judith Shekoni, promise we’ll get from their characters on NBC’s upcoming Heroes Reborn — creator Tim Kring’s sequel to the superpowered-humans-save-the-world hit that ran on the Peacock net from 2006 to 2010.
The stars of the CW’s “Supernatural” were on hand at Comic-Con to discuss the horror hit’s 11th season, with Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins and Mark Sheppard joining showrunner Jeremy Carver and executive producer Andrew Dabb to delve into the darkness that was unleashed in the season 10 finale.
On the final day of the convention, Hall H was packed with loyal fans who had a special message of support for star Jared Padalecki, who recently went public about his battle with depression by launching the “Always Keep Fighting” campaign to support those affected by mental illness, addiction, self-injury and suicide.
In solidarity with Padalecki, fans held up tea lights emblazoned with the words “Always Keep Fighting” during the panel, prompting the visibly moved star to respond, “This is so touching and humbling and honoring … I don’t have the proper words to say thank you, or how »

Yesterday at the San Diego Comic Con, NBC debuted the latest trailer for Heroes Reborn, the continuation of the 2006 – 2010 series Heroes. Years after the conclusion of the original series, people with enhanced abilities find themselves hunted after a terrible tragedy, one caused by an enhanced person, destroys Odessa, Texas. Old and new heroes must unite to fight against the new threat that is hunting them one by one.

Heroes veterans Jack Coleman (Noah Bennett), Jimmy Jean-Louis (The Haitian), Masi Oki (Hiro Nakamura), Greg Grunberg (Matt Parkman), Noah Grey-Cabbey (Micah Sanders), Sendhil Ramamurthy (Mohinder Suresh) and Christine Rose (Angela Petrelli) are returning for Heroes Reborn.

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.
