New Zealand is the new Jacksonville, Florida. At least it is when it comes to producing STARZ’ Ash vs. Evil Dead. They’ve begun shooting Season Two, another ten half-hour episodes, and you know it’s going to be groovy.
Retirement from killing Deadites never looked as good as depicted in the first photo released from the set of the STARZ Original series “Ash vs Evil Dead.” The new image gives viewers a peek into the shenanigans Ash has been up to in Jacksonville. Production began last month in New Zealand on the 10-episode second season of the half-hour series executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, Bruce Campbell, Ivan Raimi, and Craig DiGregorio who serves as executive producer and showrunner.
The cast is led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, “Burn Notice”) in the role of Ash Williams; Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”) as Ruby, who now possesses the powerful Necronomicon; Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, Ash’s loyal sidekick dealing with the trauma he suffered in the cabin; and Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, who, grief-stricken after the death of her parents, plots revenge against The Evil Dead.
As previously announced, Lee Majors, Ted Raimi and Michele Hurd join the series this year as Brock Williams, Ash’s father, Chet Kaminski, Ash’s childhood best friend, and Linda, Ash’s high school love respectively.
