Bruce Campbell Confirms “The Classic” Will Be In “Ash vs Evil Dead”

Even though we all knew that this was going to be the case, it’s still really great to get confirmation that the ’73 Delta 88 that has been featured in nearly every single Sam Raimi film is back for “Ash vs Evil Dead“, as confirmed by Bruce Campbell himself!

Campbell responded to a fan who was asking about “The Classic” and stated that the original vehicle was shipped to New Zealand for the filming of the 10-episode show.

Ash vs Evil Dead“‘s synopsis reads:

Campbell will be reprising his role 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. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons –personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip.

“Ash vs Evil Dead” (see who’s directing here) is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead and is set to premiere on STARZ in fall 2015.

    I don’t care that you already pointed out we already knew this, there was no need for an article about it.

    So, is this going to be a movie, tv series, miniseries, etc? I’m still confused to the format.

    • TV series on Starz, planned for many seasons if the ratings are good. October 31st premiere.

        Oh….meh. I’m glad Evil Dead is coming back, but as an episodic tv series, it seems to lose quality.

          how would you know.

          • Rick-Taylor

            I don’t. I am just worried it would go the way of many tv series’.

          Did you bother to watch the trailer? It looks like it will work perfectly as episodic TV and remain faithful to the movie trilogy. Plus there will be more of Bruce Campbell with a show versus simply another movie. Pointless gripping. How about don’t watch then.

      It says above in plain English that it will be a ten episode SHOW.
