NYCC: Bruce Campbell is Sure 'Ash Vs. Evil Dead' Will Get a Second Season

Three weeks away from its premiere, Bruce Campbell is convinced “Ash vs. Evil Dead” will be renewed by Starz for a second season.

“There’s no official announcement, but we’ve had to do things to get ready for a second season that they have allowed us to do," he said during a gathering with journalists at New York Comic Con. "Like keeping warehouses and extending leases, so all the indications are there."

“Look, we got a second season the minute there were 15 million views on Facebook for the trailer," continued the fan-favorite actor. "That was our second season right there, I can tell you right now. They were like, ‘Got it! We know this show now!’ They were finally convinced of its following.”

“Ash vs. Evil Dead” is a direct continuation of the Campbell and Sam Raimi’s “Evil Dead” trilogy, which concluded in 1992 with “Army of Darkness”; 2013’s “Evil Dead” offered a new take on the 1981 original. Campbell reprises his role as the not-especially-heroic Ash Williams as he fights a never-ending battle against the Deadites. If Campbell is right about a second season, it would be giving a bit of sugar to the films’ legions of fans.

“Ash vs. Evil Dead” premieres Oct. 31 on Starz.
