Thank Horror Jebus that Ryan Murphy created comedy-horror, or we wouldn’t have this fantastic news. We aren’t getting a fourth Evil Dead movie anytime soon, unless we get another reborquel with a new cast. We are, however, being klaatu berada necktied with a Starz Evil Dead series.
The series will be called Ash vs The Evil Dead and will star THE CHIN HIMSELF, BRUCE CAMPBELL! I KNOW!
The series will focus on one Ashley James “Ash” Williams, formerly reluctant hero turned chainsaw-handed, Deadite fighting badass. When those Deadites start to encroach on mankind, Ash does what he does best: he grabs a boomstick and gets down to fighting evil. There will be 10 episodes in the 2015 season, but they will only be 30 minutes each. Hopefully we will get another season after that. And then maybe another.
H/T to Eloquent Snath for the news.
