Status: Returning, 2nd Season Airs 2017
Timeslot: Sundays 8 PM EST
Premiere: October 2nd
Starring: Bruce Campbell, Jill Marie Jones, Ray Santiago, Dana Delorenzo, Lucy Lawless
Series Website: www.starz.com/originals/ashvsevildead/
Description: Ash has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead until a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind and Ash becomes mankind’s only hope. IMDb.com
Comments: This is a direct continuation of the Evil Dead movies with Bruce Campbell reprising his role as Ash and Sam Raimi onboard as executive producer.
Status: This show started with better numbers than its first season, but those ended up slipping some likely due to the stiff competition on Sunday nights. Still, Starz saw fit to give it a third season renewal and consider it a good bet to survive for four to five seasons because that has become the typical benchmark of low to moderate rated cable entries these days and fits right in with Bruce Campbell’s vision for the series.
