Starz Original Series Ash Vs. Evil Dead returns for its second season in exactly one month. On the heels of its return, Starz has released the synopsis for the first episode, titled “Home”.
The party in Jacksonville is over when Ash, Pablo, and Kelly are summoned by Ruby back to Ash’s hometown to form an unlikely alliance. Ash’s dad Brock, and the local pub rats give a chilly welcome to the man who’s come to save them from evil.
The “chilly welcome” is due in large part to events that occurred in 1981’s The Evil Dead. The people from Ash’s hometown know him as “Ashy Slashy” because they believe he murdered his own sister and friends in a small cabin.
Series regulars Bruce Campbell (Ash), Lucy Lawless (Ruby), Ray Santiago (Pablo Simon Bolivar, Ash’s sidekick), and Dana DeLorenzo (Kelly Maxwell) will return for the second season of the bloody comedy. This season, Lee Majors will join the cast as Brock WIlliams, Ash’s father and Ted Raimi joins the cast as Chet Kaminski, Ash’s childhood best friend.
Ash Vs. Evil Dead will return to Starz on October 2nd with 10 half hour episodes.
