Thirty years after the events of Evil Dead, Ash is a loner, living a dull existence, still not able to come to grips with the events that started at the cabin. In the event of a Deadite invasion, Ash must attach his chainsaw and pick up his trusty boomstick one more time, all while finally coming to terms with his past.
Glory, Gory, Hallelujah!
Did You Know?
The third film of the franchise, Army of Darkness
(1992), had to be largely ignored in the first season because Starz couldn't get the rights from Universal Pictures. The creators confirmed that Ash's trip to Medieval times did occur, but it just couldn't be referenced for legal reasons. This is a familiar situation for creator/director Sam Raimi
, as the studio that had distributed The Evil Dead
(1981) denied him permission to re-use some of its footage in Evil Dead II
(1987). However, at San Diego Comic-Con 2016, producer Rob Tapert
announced that in the wake of the show's popularity, Universal had given them permission to use elements from Army of Darkness for season two. See more
