The organisers of San Diego Comic-Con always make sure that the convention is family friendly so that people of all age groups can visit and enjoy the event. Hence, when the latest trailer of Starz's upcoming "Ash vs Evil Dead" was about to premiere at the convention, it was immediately banned because of its emphasis on blood and brutality.
In the new trailer, Ash can be seen returning home to find a solution for putting the Deadite plague to an end. It also features a lot of violence, decapitation, Deadites, and blood.
The first trailer of Season 2 was released a couple of weeks ago. In the trailer, Ash (Bruce Campbell) can be seen having a party at Jacksonville after he took a retirement. However, as most fans would expect, the Deadites return and create havoc, butchering people and turning them into more Deadites.
Alongside Campbell, reprising their roles from Season 1 are Lucy Lawless (Ruby), Ray Santiago (Pablo), and Dana DeLorenzo (Kelly). Ted Raimi and Lee Majors will also join the cast as Ash's childhood friend, Chet, and Ash's father, respectively. Season 2 will also be 10-episodes long, just like the first season.
Thought the creator of the series, Sam Raimi, directed the first episode of "Ash vs Evil Dead" Season 1, he won't be directing any of the episodes of the second season. He will, however, continue serving as the executive producer of the series.
In the original movie trilogy, Ash's origins were never revealed, but it seems that "Ash vs Evil Dead" Season 2 will explore much of the character's past and his beginning of the journey.
The official synopsis of Season 2, as stated by Slash Film, reads:
"The second season roars back into action with Ash leaving his beloved Jacksonville and returning to his hometown of Elk Grove. There, he confronts Ruby. The former enemies have to form an uneasy alliance as Elk Grove soon becomes the nucleus of evil."
"Ash vs Evil Dead" Season 2 will premiere on Sept. 23, 2016 on Starz.
