We know a lot of movies are getting new life as TV shows, but this is one we never expected!

Starz has just announced that they have ordered a 10-episode series based on the 1981 horror classic Evil Dead!

The gory flick, followed by sequels Evil Dead II and Army Of Darkness, was the big breakthrough for Spider-Man director Sam Raimi and was remade in 2013.

But this new show isn't a reboot. Sam is back, and he's bringing star Bruce Campbell back to reprise his role as hapless victim-turned-chainsaw wielding badass Ash!

Raimi, who will cowrite and direct the pilot and produce along with Xena and Spartacus partner Rob Tapert, says:

"Evil Dead has always been a blast. Bruce, Rob, and I are thrilled to have the opportunity to tell the next chapter in Ash's lame but heroic saga. With his chainsaw arm and his 'boomstick,' Ash is back to kick some monster butt. And brother, this time there's a truckload of it."

He's not kidding! According to the synopsis, Ash will be forced to pick up the shotgun and become a hero once again once a Deadite plague threatens the world!

Considering how crazy and unpredictable the movies are, we cannot WAIT to see what the show has in store for us!

Ash vs. Evil Dead will premiere in 2015!
