“It’s a superhero show without the hero. Without the super,” says Bruce Campbell.
If Starz wants to do right by “Ash vs. Evil Dead,“ we’re not sure this coming Sunday, the night of the mid-season return of “The Walking Dead,” was the best night to premiere Season 3… but what a night it will be for horror fans. Yes, both “The Walking Dead” and “Ash vs. Evil Dead” are back this Sunday night, and we’ve got a new tease for the latter today.
In this sneak peek from Syfy Wire, the cast detail where their characters are at going into Season 3, and we also meet brand new character Dalton, who views Ash the same way we view Ash: as a badass, chainsaw-handed rockstar who is both super and a hero!
“Ash vs Evil Dead” Season Three will premiere Sunday, February 25, 2018, at 9 PM ET/PT and also be available for streaming or download on the STARZ app.
“The third season finds Ash, having gone from murderous urban legend to humanity-saving hometown hero, discovering that he has a long-lost daughter who’s been entrusted to his care. 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. But evil will learn to never get in between a papa bear and his cub.”
Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead, “Burn Notice”) leads the cast, reprising the role of Ash Williams; Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”) as Ruby, devises her most diabolical plan to defeat Ash and raise hell on earth; Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, forever loyal to Jefe (Ash) will realize his true destiny in the battle against evil; and Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, whose single goal is to kill Ruby and end the Evil Dead torment once and for all.
New to the cast for season three are Arielle Carver-O’Neill (“House Husbands”) as Brandy Barr, Ash’s long lost daughter left in his care when her mother meets an untimely demise; Lindsay Farris (“Home and Away,” Primal) as Dalton, leader of an ancient order called the Knights of Sumeria, who seek Ash to lead their fight against The Dark Ones.
Lee Majors returns as Brock Williams to warn Ash from beyond the grave.
