Ash vs Evil Dead posterRev up the chainsaw arm and reload your boomstick, Starz have released a poster and graphic tease for the series Ash vs Evil Dead.

Ever since Army of Darkness back in 1992 there had been numerous reports of a fourth Evil Dead film. While 2013 saw the release of Fede Alvarez’s remake, writer/director Sam Raimi announced a television series spin-off at San Diego Comic Con last year. The series will see him working alongside his brother Ivan Raimi and returning star Bruce Campbell.

Having long been out of action, Ash has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. However, a deadite plague forces him to face his demons, literally.

Other characters include Ruby (Lucy Lawless), a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks; Amanda Fisher (Jill Marie Jones), a disgraced Michigan State Trooper determined to prove that Ash is responsible for the death of her partner; Pablo Simon Bolivar (Ray Santiago), an immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick, and Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo), a moody wild child that might have more in common with Ash than he thinks.

The first season will consist of ten 30 minute episodes, which will be shot in New Zealand. The pilot episode will be directed by Sam Raimi, which he co-wrote with Ivan Raimi, Craig DiGregorio and Tom Spezialy.

Craig DiGregorio will serve as executive producer and showrunner. Sam Raimi will also executive produce, along with the producer of the original trilogy, Robert Tapert, Bruce Campbell and Ivan Raimi.

Ash vs Evil Dead will air in the US in late 2015.
