I think we can comfortably say that season one of Starz Networks Ash Vs. Evil Dead was a huge success and it was really no surprise when it was announced that Ash and his band of deadite fighting cronies would be back for more but this – this may be a bit of a surprise.
Some casting news has dropped and it has been revealed that we will get to meet Ash’s dad in season two and he will be played by the Six Million Dollar Man himself – Lee Majors.
There’s a name we haven’t heard in a while but you know what? I think it’s a bit of inspired casting. I’m looking forward to this.
Also announced was the addition of long time Sam Raimi staple – Ted Raimi, like Bruce, he’s pretty much been a part of everything Sam has ever done. Ted will play Chet Kaminski – Ash’s childhood friend.
Put all this together and it’s sounding like season two will taking Ash back home and we’ll get a look into what has made Ash the man he is. Sounds like one hell of a good time.
We’ve also found out that season two will kick off on Sept. 23rd!
Everyone else is returning so we’ve got Bruce Campbell as Ash, Lucy Lawless as Ruby, Ray Santiago as Pablo, and Dana DeLorenzo as Kelly. Gonna be a great time!
