A new teaser for Starz’ “Ash vs Evil Dead” has been released and it mixes new footage with interviews with the main cast members. The stars explain several bits of plot that will be present in the second season, including why Ash is so hesitant to go back to Elk Grove, Michigan, his hometown. Additionally, we learn why Ruby is asking Ash for his help and why he agrees to do it. All of that, and more, can be seen below.
