The series brings Evil Dead trilogy star Bruce Campbell back to the role of Ash Williams, the one-handed Deadite fighter who survived horror in the wood and in medieval times. The announcement of a series brought much excitement from fans of the original film series, masterminded by Sam Raimi, who also returns to direct the Ash pilot and executive produce the series.

"One season isn't enough to satisfy the fans' two decade-long appetite for more Ash," said Carmi Zlotnik, Starz's managing director. "The early fan and press support, along with the international broadcaster demand for more story have made it clear that the adventures of Ash Williams can't end with season one."

The first season of Ash vs. Evil Dead premieres on October 31st.
