The release date for Ash vs. Evil Dead season 2 — October 02, 2016
This article has the most up-to-date info on the status of Ash vs. Evil Dead season 2 as we continuously monitor the news to keep you in the know. Starz has scheduled the premiere date for a new season for October 02, 2016.
Ash vs. Evil Dead is an American comedy horror TV series produced by Renaissance Pictures for Starz. It debuted on October 31, 2015. It was developed by Sam Raimi, Ivan Raimi and Tom Spezialy based on the characters created by Sam Raimi.
Set in the Evil Dead Universe, the series is somewhat of a sequel to the four Evil Dead feature films (1981-2013), loved by many. Ash is the protagonist who migrated into the series from the film. He is the only hope for mankind when Deadite plague hits. There are cheesy jokes, blood-splattering, chainsaw buzzing, lives saved, Ash triumphant over and over again – a perfect formula for great entertainment that draws on one of the audience`s favorite cult films. The show`s creators actually mentioned that Starz was the only network that didn`t require them to create a softer television version without all the blood and gore, instead of doing exactly what they wanted, which was deemed inappropriate by other channels. If you are in the mood for a nostalgic VHS-style gore-filled horror with a smile – this is it!
Remarkably, the series` renewal for a second season was announced even prior to its premiere. Apparently, the network was more than convinced of the show`s success, and it was right to an extent – the viewership numbers for Ash vs. Evil Dead aren`t huge, but steady. The critical reviews are generally favorable. Will Ash`s charisma and the bloody and humorous style carry the show to new heights? WIll the second season offer something new to the audience? Does the audience need anything new from a show with this long a history? Not necessarily.
