Evil is about to get schooled.
There’s been a lot of talk lately about the third season of Starz’ “Ash vs. Evil Dead,” as the show normally returns in October but hadn’t yet received a premiere date as we headed into October this year. So what’s the deal? Has it been bumped? We’ve finally got the official word!
Via Starz this morning, “Ash vs. Evil Dead” Season 3 will premiere on Sunday, February 25, 2018. The third season will unleash 10 brand new episodes that’ll bring us “more grisly battles, ghoulish banter and more blood-drenched fun than ever.”
“The third season finds Ash’s status in Elk Grove, Michigan has changed from murderous urban legend to humanity-saving hometown hero. When Kelly witnesses a televised massacre with Ruby’s fingerprints all over it, she returns with a new friend to warn Ash and Pablo that evil isn’t done with them yet. Blood is thicker than water in the battle of good vs Evil Dead!”
The wickedly gore-filled series stars Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams, the chainsaw-wielding anti-hero tasked with saving the world from evil; Lucy Lawless as Ruby, the unpredictable foe and occasional ally who has strong ties to the origin of the “Necronomicon;” Ray Santiago plays Pablo Simon Bolivar, Ash’s loyal sidekick and eternal optimist; and Dana DeLorenzo returns as Kelly Maxwell, orphaned in Season One and ready to kick some evil ass.
The upcoming season also finds Ash discovering his long lost daughter, Brandy Barr, played by newcomer Arielle Carver-O’Neill!
The Evil Dead original filmmakers Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell serve as executive producers on Season Three along with Ivan Raimi and Rick Jacobson. Mark Verheiden serves as Showrunner with Producer Moira Grant.
