Second Season of ASH VS. EVIL DEAD To Add Ash’s Father & Linda to The Mix; FULL TRAILER Released!!

AvsEThe first season of the Starz series, ASH VS. EVIL DEAD was one hell of a ride, throwing fans of the EVIL DEAD series right into a blood soaked return of one of the best anti-heroes around, Ash Williams, along with establishing a new take on the mythology of the series. It was one of the rare cases of returning to a series and character that fans love and adore, and actually staying faithful to the spirit of what made Sam Raimi’s films so wonderful. Left with a cliffhanger of a finale that in my opinion, actually made you WANT more SOON, the series is now returning for its second season, which from the sound of it, is sure to be another fun time. We’ve got a photo from the upcoming second season, as well as a rundown on what to expect. Read on!

 

*UPDATE*

A brand new, full length season trailer has arrived and holy crap is it one hell of a time. See below!

The second season roars back into action with Ash leaving his beloved Jacksonville and returning to his hometown of Elk Grove. There, he confronts Ruby. The former enemies have to form an uneasy alliance as Elk Grove soon becomes the nucleus of evil.

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, who, grief-stricken after the death of her parents, plots revenge against The Evil Dead. Lee Majors (Do You Believe), Ted Raimi (“Xena: Warrior Princess,” Spider-Man) and Michelle Hurd (“Law & Order: SVU”) join the series this year as Brock Williams, Ash’s father, Chet Kaminski, Ash’s childhood best friend, and Linda, Ash’s high school love respectively.

I’m anxious to see what the elder Williams will be like, and the idea of Lee Majors playing the father of one of my favorite characters of all time sounds awesome. I’ll be ready and waiting for the series’ Fall return, what do you fright fanatics think about the approach to season two?
