Season 1 of Ash vs Evil Dead, the Starz original series that continues the Evil Dead film franchise, will be released on DVD and Blu-ray next month by Anchor Bay Entertainment.
Check out the DVD and Blu-ray box art here below.
The home video release will contain all 10 half-hour episodes of Season 1 of Ash vs Evil Dead, which saw Bruce Campbell reprising his role as Ash from the films, and also the return of original filmmakers Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert as executive producers.
In the television series, we find Ash 30 years after his harrowing experiences in that cabin in the woods, and as far as his personality goes, he hasn’t changed much. These days, Ash is a stock boy who’s still trying to woo the ladies, but when he once again inadvertently summons evil, he straps on his chainsaw to fight demons.
This time around Ash also has sidekicks for his demon-hunting endeavors — co-workers Pablo Simon Bolivar (Ray Santiago) and Kelly Maxwell (Dana DeLorenzo) — while he’s pursued by Ruby (Lucy Lawless), who blames Ash for the evil that’s returned, and former Michigan State Trooper Amanda Fisher (Jill Marie Jones), who believes Ash is somehow responsible for her partner’s gruesome death.
Campbell reprises his role as Ash, the stock boy, 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. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip.
Ash vs Evil Dead will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on August 23, 2016, and is available for pre-order now, while Season 2 begins airing on Starz this October.
