There's been talk of a fourth film in the original series ever since Army of Darkness was premiered in 1992 - and following a 2013 remake of the original Evil Dead, there were rumours of not just a sequel to that movie but also another film bringing together the 'original' and 'reboot' mythologies.
If you've missed out, here's everything you need to know about Ash vs. Evil Dead:
Huh? An Evil Dead TV series?
Lawless is set to play Ruby, a mysterious figure who is on her own quest to hunt down the person responsible for this deadite outbreak – and she thinks Ash is the man behind it all.
She and Raimi have worked together previously on Xena: Warrior Princess, a show that also featured Bruce Campbell, who will reprise his iconic role here as the titular Ash. They also worked together on Spartacus, Spider-Man and Boogeyman.
“Campbell reprises his role as Ash, the aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons – personal and literal. »

Writer-producer Tim Kring likes telling a certain kind of story, incorporating far-flung locales, disparate characters and a vaguely supernatural element, with the connections only becoming apparent over time (and sometimes, not completely even then). That approach produced “Heroes,” an NBC hit for a while; “Touch,” a short-lived Fox series; and now “Dig,” on which the producer teams with “Homeland’s” Gideon Raff, embarking on a global conspiracy whose biblical-inspired implications yet remain fuzzy after three episodes. Some will no doubt lose themselves in the mystery and casting, which includes Jason Isaacs; others, feeling twice burned, might decide to break ground elsewhere.
“Dig” opens with Orthodox Jews in Norway inspecting a red calf. “The prophecy has begun,” one says, dispatching a wide-eyed young man (Guy Selenik) on a mission of great importance but unclear intent.
From there, it’s off to Israel, where American FBI agent Peter Connelly (Isaacs, adopting a »

Bruce Campbell is set to strap on the chainsaw and boomstick later this year as he returns to the role of Ashley J. Williams for the Sam Raimi-produced Starz series Ash vs Evil Dead. During an interview with Dread Central, Campbell has offered up a few words on his return as Ash, and his two new cast members in Ray Santiago (Touch) and Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas).
“I’m bringing everything to the table. It’s a feisty version of Ash, who’s grizzled and just wants to be left alone. I was there during the casting process, and they’re very talented. Aside from the ensemble [aspect], they each needed to be able to hold their own because they’ll have their own series of missions. It’s an epic tale. How could you not [plan for that]? I’m a strong proponent of the ‘big picture’ plan, »
