Ash vs Evil Dead Renewed

Ash vs. Evil Dead Renewed for Season 2 Ahead of Season 1 Debut

That was bloody fast.

Three days before Ash vs. Evil Dead‘s Halloween launch, Starz has already renewed the comedic horror series for a 10-episode second season, TVLine has confirmed.

“One season isn’t enough to satisfy the fans’ two decade-long appetite for more Ash,” Starz managing director Carmi Zlotnik said in a statement. “The early fan and press support, along with the international broadcaster demand for more story have made it clear that the adventures of Ash Williams can’t end with Season 1.”

Based on Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell‘s film franchise, Ash vs. Evil Dead picks up 30 years after the events of 1981’s The Evil Dead; Ash (Campbell) is still coming to terms with what went down at the cabin, when he’s suddenly forced to go to war against an army of deadites.

Season 1 premieres this Saturday at 9/8c. Season 2 will bow in late 2016.
