Ash vs. Evil Dead Cast Tease 'Epic, Badass' Ruby-Kelly 'Spinoff'

Spinoff buzz was in the air when the Ash vs. Evil Dead cast popped into TVLine’s Comic-Con studio, presented by ZTE, last weekend to talk up Season 2 of their blood-soaked Starz series. It all started when co-star Dana DeLorenzo revealed that an upcoming episode finds her fierce and ferocious character Kelly collaborating with the enemy, aka Lucy Lawless’ demonic Ruby.

“Lucy and I have a really epic moment together,” she previewed. “They team up together and we turn into a badass super duo.” DeLorenzo went on to brand the partnership Ash vs. Evil Dead‘s version of Thelma & Louise, which prompted leading man Bruce Campbell to (playfully) toss out the s-word.

Later, in the Q&A’s most poignant moment, Campbell explained what it meant — for the show and to him personally — to have the Six Million Dollar Man himself, Lee Majors, join the cast as Ash’s dad. “It’s awesome,” he marveled. “It’s one of those things you think will never happen.”

    A Ruby spin-off where she is seeking to atone for her past sins by fighting demons, monsters and other baddies in the name of the greater good would be nice to see.

    But, Ruby should be joined by a different sidekick, not Kelly. Ruby’s new sidekick should be the audience’s POV into the Evil Dead universe’s mythology and should obviously be played by Renee O’Connor.

    That’s if Lucy Lawless and Renee O’Connor aren’t too busy filming a limited revival miniseries / movie of Xena: Warrior Princess (in the universe where NBC Universal aren’t plagued by ageism and sexism and actually support such a revival).
