Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2

Ash vs. Evil Dead Adds Lee Majors (as Dad!), Dead Vet Ted Raimi for Season 2

Ash Williams’ pop is no less than The Six Million Dollar Man.

TV vet Lee Majors has boarded Season 2 of Starz’s Ash vs. Evil Dead in the role of Brock Williams, the title character’s father, it was announced on Wednesday.

Also joining the horror dramedy is Ted Raimi, who has appeared in all of the Evil Dead features (in assorted roles) and here will play Ash’s childhood BFF, Chet Kaminski. (Raimi’s older brother Sam, of course, is the Evil Dead auteur himself, and serves as an exec producer on the series with star Bruce Campbell and Craig DiGregorio.)

Majors’ TV credits also include, of course, The Big Valley, The Virginian and The Fall Guy, and more recently episodes of Raising Hope and TNT’s Dallas revival. Raimi’s TV credits include Seaquest 2032, Hercules, Xena and Legend of the Seeker.

Season 2 of Ash vs. Evil Dead will premiere sometime in 2016.

    “Raimi’s TV credits include Legend of the Seeker.” Seriously, that’s the best you could come up with? The man has been working in TV for over 20 years and this single guest appearance is what you choose to list? Hercules, Xena, and SeaQuest are all better examples of his TV credits.

      You make sound points, “makparis.” Mr Raimi’s credits have been revisited. .

      You are so right!! Ted has worked in movies and TV from the 1980’s and was in all three Evil Dead films: 1, 2, and Army of Darkness. He’s guested on a number of TV shows including Supernatural and American Gothic.

    The Bionic Dad versus the Evil Dead!! What a wonderful world!!!

    I hope we see more of Ruby in season 2.

    Or, EVEN BETTER, I hope we see less of Ruby in season 2 because Lucy Lawless is reprising her iconic role as Xena: Warrior Princess in NBC’s reboot for the premier episodes to have one last adventure with Gabrielle and to help to launch the reboot.

    My childhood buddies and I spent way too much time running around the front yard in slow motion while make the bionic noise.
