It may have been deemed too damn nasty for Comic-Con, but you can see the trailer for season 2 of Ash Vs Evil Dead right here, in all its sanguiney glory! While the show is expected to have a presence at San Diego’s annual event this week, something a little less graphic will presumably be speedily prepared.
We catch up with everyone’s favourite one-handed, time-hopping deadite slayer as he takes a break from battling evil, and gets back to his preferred leisure activities – drinking, partying and trying to recapture his youth. Inevitably though, Ash is pulled back into the fight, once again bringing Pablo (Ray Santiago) and Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) along for the ride. Season 2 of the show will also introduce us to Ash’s father Brock, played by the Six Million Dollar Man himself, Lee Majors. As Ash heads back to his hometown, we’ll also meet his childhood best friend Chet Kaminski, played by Ted Raimi; brother of Sam and onetime ‘fake shemp’.
One look at this trailer and you can see why the Comic-Con folk got a little uneasy; it’s a bloody, brutal and quite beautiful bloodbath.
Ash Vs Evil Dead will return to Starz in the autumn.
