It really feels like it’s going to happen this time. I’ve been hearing and reading about a sequel to the original Sam Raimi/Bruce Campbell horror series for forever now and recently those sequel plans have turned into a 10 episode series on the STARZ network. Not the most prestigious of channels to be on, but fingers crossed.
Evil Dead’s original creators will be showrunning this continuation of the original so, there’s that too.
Now comes news that actress Lucy Lawless (Xena, Spartacus, Battlestar Galactica) will join the already cast Jill Marie Jones (Sleepy Hollow, American Horror Story: Asylum) and Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, Burn Notice) on the new sequel series. Lucy will play the initial foil to Bruce’s Ash, but I hereby predict they’ll be fighting side by side by the end.
